INSTALL(1)				       General Commands Manual					   INSTALL(1)

NAME
install - install binaries
SYNOPSIS
install [-cs] [-f flags] [-g group] [-m mode] [-o owner] file1 file2 install [-cs] [-f flags] [-g group] [-m mode] [-o owner] file1 ... fileN directory
DESCRIPTION
The file(s) are moved (or copied if the c option is specified) to the target file or directory. If the desti- nation is a directory, then the file is moved into directory with its original filename. If the target file already exists, it is overwritten if permissions allow. c Copy the file. This flag turns off the default behavior of install where it deletes the original file after creating the target. f Specify the target's file flags. (See chflags(1) for a list of possible flags and their meanings.) g Specify a group. m Specify an alternate mode. The default mode is set to rwxr-xr-x (0755). The specified mode may be either an octal or symbolic value; see chmod(1) for a description of possible mode values. o Specify an owner. s Install exec's the command strip(1) to strip binaries so that install can be portable over a large number of systems and binary types. By default, install preserves all file flags, with the exception of the ``nodump'' flag. The install utility attempts to prevent moving a file onto itself. Installing /dev/null creates an empty file. Upon successful completion a value of 0 is returned. Otherwise, a value of 1 is returned.
