NAME
       install - copy files and set attributes

SYNOPSIS
       install [OPTION]... [-T] SOURCE DEST
       install [OPTION]... SOURCE... DIRECTORY
       install [OPTION]... -t DIRECTORY SOURCE...
       install [OPTION]... -d DIRECTORY...

DESCRIPTION
       In the first three forms, copy SOURCE to DEST or multiple SOURCE(s) to the existing DIREC-
       TORY, while setting permission modes and owner/group.  In the 4th form, create all  compo-
       nents of the given DIRECTORY(ies).

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       --backup[=CONTROL]
	      make a backup of each existing destination file

       -b     like --backup but does not accept an argument

       -c     (ignored)

       -d, --directory
	      treat  all  arguments  as  directory  names; create all components of the specified
	      directories

       -D     create all leading components of DEST except the last, then copy SOURCE to DEST

       -g, --group=GROUP
	      set group ownership, instead of process' current group

       -m, --mode=MODE
	      set permission mode (as in chmod), instead of rwxr-xr-x

       -o, --owner=OWNER
	      set ownership (super-user only)

       -p, --preserve-timestamps
	      apply access/modification times of SOURCE files to corresponding destination files

       -s, --strip
	      strip symbol tables

       -S, --suffix=SUFFIX override the usual backup suffix

       -t, --target-directory=DIRECTORY
	      copy all SOURCE arguments into DIRECTORY

       -T, --no-target-directory
	      treat DEST as a normal file

       -v, --verbose
	      print the name of each directory as it is created

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit

       The backup suffix is `~', unless set with --suffix or SIMPLE_BACKUP_SUFFIX.   The  version
       control	method	may  be  selected  via the --backup option or through the VERSION_CONTROL
       environment variable.  Here are the values:

       none, off
	      never make backups (even if --backup is given)

       numbered, t
	      make numbered backups

       existing, nil
	      numbered if numbered backups exist, simple otherwise

       simple, never
	      always make simple backups
