MKBOM(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 						  MKBOM(8)

mkbom -- create a bill-of-materials file SYNOPSIS
mkbom [-s] directory bom mkbom [-s] -i filelist bom mkbom -h | --help DESCRIPTION
The mkbom command creates a bill-of-materials (bom(5)). You must specify either a source as a directory, or a text file containing a file listing as outputted by lsbom(8). mkbom will generate bill-of-materials information based on that information. Any existing bomfile will be overwritten by the new bomfile. Options: -h print full usage -s create a simplified bom containing only file paths -i filelist use the information in filelist, one entry per line, to construct the bom file. The format of the file should match lsbom(8) output with no formatting options (the default). If -s is given to mkbom, the input filelist should contain only pathnames, as with lsbom -s. SEE ALSO
bom(5), ditto(8), mkbom(8) HISTORY
The mkbom command appeared in NeXTSTEP as a tool to create bom files used during installation. Mac OS X September 26, 2006 Mac OS X

BOMSTRIP(1)						    BSD General Commands Manual 					       BOMSTRIP(1)

bomstrip, bomstrip-files -- strip the BOM sequence from UTF-8 files SYNOPSIS
bomstrip bomstrip-files file ... DESCRIPTION
The bomstrip utility reads UTF-8 data from its standard input and copies it to its standard output, stripping the BOM (byte-order mark) from the beginning of the text if it is present. There are no command-line options and no parameters. The bomstrip-files utility removes the UTF-8 BOM from the specified files, saving each file's original contents with a .bom extension. It uses the bomstrip utility, trying to execute it as ``bomstrip''; if the bomstrip utility is installed under another name, or if a more com- plex command is desired, it may be supplied in the BOMSTRIP environment variable. EXAMPLES
Strip the BOM, if present, from a text file: bomstrip < bom.txt > nobom.txt Strip the BOM, if present, from all text files, backing them up with a .bom extension: bomstrip-files *.txt Use the OCAML implementation of bomstrip: env BOMSTRIP='ocaml bomstrip.ocaml' bomstrip-files *.txt SEE ALSO
The bomstrip home page: HISTORY
The bomstrip utility (in many languages) was written by Mechiel Lukkien, with implementations in various languages sent to him by others, including Andreas Gohr, Andrew Gerrand, Berteun Damman, Matthijs Bomhoff, Peter Pentchev, and Ruben Smelik. The bomstrip-files utility and this manual page were written by Peter Pentchev in the hope that they reflect the behavior of all the bomstrip implementations in all lan- guages. AUTHORS
