NAME

  itruns - set up files	for use	by the it command

SYNOPSIS

  /sbin/itruns file [file...] in run-state [, file [file...] in	run-state]
  [,...]

DESCRIPTION

  The itruns program sets up scripts to	be run by it(8).  (These programs are
  typically used within	system configuration and installation scripts.)	 The
  itruns command searches for /sbin/it.d/bin/file. If itruns finds the file,
  it creates one or more symbolic links	from /sbin/it.d/run-state.d/file to
  /sbin/it.d/bin/file.

  The run-state	argument can be	a single run state, or it can be two run
  states separated by either the word or or the	word and. If two run states
  are specified	with the or keyword, itruns checks for (and creates, if
  necessary) a directory whose name combines both run states and places	a
  link in that directory so that the file will be executed when	the it pro-
  gram detects either state.  You can collapse two or-separated	states into a
  single expression; for example, 2 or 3 can be	expressed as 23. If the	and
  keyword is used, itruns checks for (and creates, if necessary) two separate
  directories and places a link	in each	of them	so that	either state triggers
  execution of the file	independently of the other state.

  If two or more files are specified for a single run-state argument, links
  are created for all of the files as indicated	by the run-state argument.

  If two or more combinations of files and run states are specified as
  comma-separated expressions, itruns treats each combination individually.

RESTRICTIONS

  The itruns command must be executed from the root directory (/). The com-
  mand finds only files	that are located in the	/sbin/it.d/bin directory.

EXAMPLES

   1.  This example sets up the	doconfig script	to be run when the system is
       booted to run state 2:
	    itruns doconfig in 2

   2.  Either of the command lines in this example sets	up the doconfig	and
       getdate scripts to be run when the system is booted to run state	2 or
       to run state 3:
	    itruns doconfig getdate in 2 or 3
	    itruns doconfig getdate in 23

   3.  This example sets up the	doconfig script	to be run when the system is
       booted to run state 2 and again when the	system comes to	run state 3,
       the getdate script to be	run only in run	state 2, and the getsysname
       script to be run	only in	run state 3:
	    itruns doconfig in 2 and 3,	getdate	in 2, getsysname in 3
