stl_ctrl - setld software subset control files (*.ctrl)
Each software subset that is distributed for installation with the setld
utility has an associated subset control file (subsetname.ctrl), for exam-
ple: OATODB100.ctrl. This file, created by kits utility, contains subset
attribute information. After the subset has been installed on a system, the
setld utility places the control file in the /usr/.smdb. directory.
Each attribute definition in a subset control file is on a single line as
an attribute name and value pair, separated by an equals sign (NAME=value).
The attributes are:
The name (text description) of the product of which this subset is a
component, from the NAME attribute in the product attributes section of
the key file.
The text description of the subset, from the subset descriptor in the
The size in bytes used on the root file system.
The size in bytes used on the /usr file system.
The size in bytes used on the /var file system.
Two integers separated by a colon (I:J). These integers are used by
the setld utility to find the subset on tape media. The first integer
specifies the volume in the product tape set; the second is the loca-
tion within that volume. The values established for this attribute by
the kits utility are placeholders; the actual values are generated by
the gentapes command as the subset is written to tape.
