NAME
       shtool-mkshadow - GNU shtool create shadow tree using symlinks

SYNOPSIS
       shtool mkshadow [-v|--verbose] [-t|--trace] [-a|--all] src-dir dst-dir

DESCRIPTION
       This command creates a shadow tree of src-dir under dst-dir by recreating the directory
       hierarchy of src-dir under dst-dir and by creating the files of src-dir by linking them
       into the corresponding directories under dst-dir via symbolic links. When src-dir can be
       reached via relative paths from dst-dir, relative symbolic links are used, too. This high-
       level functionality is originally designed for developers to create copies of source
       trees.

OPTIONS
       The following command line options are available.

       -v, --verbose
	   Display some processing information.

       -t, --trace
	   Enable the output of the essential shell commands which are executed.

       -a, --all
	   Really shadow all files and directories in src-dir. Default is to skip CVS related
	   files and directories, backup files, object files, etc.

EXAMPLE
	#   shell script
	shtool mkshadow -v -a . /tmp/shadow

HISTORY

       <rse@engelschall.com> in 1998 for Apache. It was later revised and taken over into GNU
       shtool.

SEE ALSO
       shtool(1), ln(1).
