NAME
       setup - A text mode system configuration tool

SYNOPSIS
       setup

DESCRIPTION
       The  setuptool  program	(setup)  is  a front-end menu program for a group of other tools,
       mostly system-config-*-tui tools. The list of options which it presents	is  assembled  by
       scanning /etc/setuptool.d and /usr/share/setuptool/setuptool.d for files.

       Each  file  in the directory should contain one or more lines of text.  Each line contains
       from one to four fields which are separated by "|" characters.  In order, they are:
	 - the path to the binary to invoke (mandatory)
	 - the untranslated name of the application which should be displayed
	   (If unset, defaults to the path of the binary, but don't depend on that.)
	 - the gettext textdomain in which a translation of the name of the  application  can  be
       found
	   (If unset, defaults to "setup".)
	 - the directory in which translations for the textdomain can be found
	   (If unset, defaults to "/usr/share/locale".)

       If  multiple  entries  with the same untranslated name exist, the one which was read FIRST
       takes precedence. Files are read in name collation order.

EXAMPLE
       A contrived example would create /etc/setuptool.d/00bogus with these contents:

	 /bin/ls --color; /bin/sleep 5|Example "ls" invocation.

       or

	 /bin/ls --color; /bin/sleep 5|Give this help list|libc

       to use one of libc's (not meaningful here, but) translatable messages.
