NAME
installbsd - Installs a command (BSD version) SYNOPSIS
installbsd [-cs] [-g group] [-m mode] [-o owner] file destination The installbsd command moves or copies a binary file to the specified destination file or directory. It is most often used in makefiles. OPTIONS
Copies file to destination rather than moving it. Specifies a group for the destination file. The default group is staff. Specifies the mode of the destination file. The default mode is 755. Specifies the owner of the destination file. The default owner is root. Causes the binary file to be stripped after installation (see strip(1)). DESCRIPTION
If destination is a file and such a file already exists, installbsd removes it before file is moved or copied. If destination is a direc- tory, file is moved or copied into that directory with its original filename. installbsd will not move a file onto itself. EXAMPLES
To install a new command called fixit, enter: installbsd -c -o henry fixit /usr/bin This installs a new command by copying the program fixit to /usr/bin/fixit, with user henry as owner. SEE ALSO
Commands: chgrp(1), chmod(1), chown(1), cp(1), install(1), make(1), mv(1), strip(1) installbsd(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 destination 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. SEE ALSO
chflags(1), chgrp(1), chmod(1), cp(1), mv(1), strip(1), chown(8) HISTORY
The install utility appeared in 4.2BSD. 4.2 Berkeley Distribution February 20, 1996 INSTALL(1)
