depord - Sort subset names into dependency order
/usr/lbin/depord [-c ctrldir [-c ctrldir]...] [-f [namefile | -]] [-I |
-i] [subsetID [subsetID...]]
Searches the directory ctrldir for subset *.ctrl files instead of the
current directory. You can use multiple -c options.
Reads the subset names from namefile. If you use the "-" argument
instead of namefile, read the subset names from standard input. The
namefile and "-" arguments to the -f option are mutually exclusive. If
you also specify subset names with subsetID operands, they are con-
catenated with the subset names specified with the -f option.
-I Includes in the ordered output the names of all prerequisite subsets
for the subset name argument list. The -I and -i options are mutually
-i Includes in the ordered output the names of all prerequisite subsets
for the subset name argument list, and excludes from the output any
prerequisite subsets that are already installed. The -I and -i options
are mutually exclusive.
The name of a subset for dependency checking and ordering. If you also
specify subset names with the -f option, they are concatenated with
The depord command reads the subset *.ctrl files in the specified direc-
tories for dependency information, then sorts the subset name argument list
(and, optionally, prerequisite subset names) in dependency order. If other
directories are not specified, depord searches for subset *.ctrl files in
the current directory.
+ If you install the subsets in the order shown in the depord output,
subset dependencies are satisfied.
+ If you are not using either the -I or -i option and if a subset depen-
dency cannot be satisfied by the other specified subset names, an
error message displays and that subset is not included in the output.
+ All subsets in a dependency cycle (where subsets are mutually depen-
dent) are ignored. An error message displays, and those subsets are
not included in the output.
The depord command is used by the setld(8) utility.
To sort the subsets listed on the command line into dependency order:
# /usr/lbin/depord OSFCDEDT500 OSFX11500 OSFCDEMIN500
To use the -I option to list the prerequisite subsets for OSFDCEDT500,
sorted into dependency order:
# /usr/lbin/depord -I OSFCDEDT500
To use the -i option to check the prerequisite subsets for OSFDCEDT500, and
exclude from the output those that are already installed:
# /usr/lbin/depord -i OSFCDEDT500
The -I and -i options are mutually exclusive.

Indicates subsetID is already installed. Contents list other subsets
dependent upon subsetID.
