NAME
     order - package installation order description file

DESCRIPTION
     The package installation order file,  .order,  is  an  ASCII
     file   specifying  the  order  in  which  packages  must  be
     installed  based on their  prerequisite  dependencies.   Any
     package  with  prerequisite  dependencies  must be installed
     after any packages it lists as a prerequisite dependency  in
     its depend file.

     A .order file is required for the  OS  product.  The  .order
     file  must  reside in the top-level directory containing the
     product.

     The ordering is specified as a list of package  identifiers,
     from  the  first  package  to  be installed to the last, one
     package identifier per line.

NOTES
     The depend file supports incompatible and reverse  dependen-
     cies.   These  dependency  types  are  not recognized in the
     order  file.
