pkgproto(1)				  User Commands 			      pkgproto(1)

NAME
       pkgproto - generate prototype file entries for input to pkgmk command

SYNOPSIS
       pkgproto [-i] [-c class] [path1]

       pkgproto [-i] [-c class] [path1=path2]...

DESCRIPTION
       pkgproto  scans	the  indicated	paths and generates prototype(4) file entries that may be
       used as input to the pkgmk(1) command.

       If no paths are specified on the command line, standard input is assumed to be a  list  of
       paths.  If  the	pathname  listed on the command line is a directory,  the contents of the
       directory is searched. However, if input is read from stdin, a directory  specified  as	a
       pathname will not be searched.

       Package	commands, such as pkgproto, are largefile(5)-aware. They handle files larger than
       2 GB in the same  way  they  handle  smaller  files.  In  their	current  implementations,
       pkgadd(1M),  pkgtrans(1)  and  other package commands can process a datastream of  up to 4
       GB.

OPTIONS
       -i	   Ignores symbolic links and records  the  paths  as  ftype=f	(a  file)  versus
		   ftype=s (symbolic link).

       -c class    Maps the class of all paths to class.

OPERANDS
       path1	Pathname where objects are located.

       path2	Pathname which should be substituted on output for path1.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1 Basic Usage

       The following example shows a common usage of pkgproto and a partial listing of the output
       produced.

	 example% pkgproto /bin=bin /usr/bin=usrbin /etc=etc
	 f none bin/sed=/bin/sed 0775 bin bin
	 f none bin/sh=/bin/sh 0755 bin daemon
	 f none bin/sort=/bin/sort 0755 bin bin
	 f none usrbin/sdb=/usr/bin/sdb 0775 bin bin
	 f none usrbin/shl=/usr/bin/shl 4755 bin bin
	 d none etc/master.d 0755 root daemon
	 f none etc/master.d/kernel=/etc/master.d/kernel 0644 root daemon
	 f none etc/rc=/etc/rc 0744 root daemon

       Example 2 Using pkgproto in a Pipeline

       The following command shows pkgproto accepting the output of the find command.

	 example% find / -type d -print | pkgproto
	 d none / 755 root root
	 d none /bin 755 bin bin
	 d none /usr 755 root root
	 d none /usr/bin 775 bin bin
	 d none /etc 755 root root
	 d none /tmp 777 root root

EXIT STATUS
       0     Successful completion.

       >0    An error occurred.

NOTES
       By default, pkgproto creates symbolic link  entries  for  any  symbolic	link  encountered
       (ftype=s).  When  you  use the -i option, pkgproto creates a file entry for symbolic links
       (ftype=f). The prototype(4) file would have to be edited to assign such file  types  as	v
       (volatile),  e  (editable),  or x (exclusive directory). pkgproto detects linked files. If
       multiple files are linked together, the first path encountered is considered the source of
       the link.

       By  default, pkgproto prints prototype entries on the standard output. However, the output
       should be saved in a file (named Prototype or prototype, for convenience) to  be  used  as
       input to the pkgmk(1) command.
