ln_local is a simple shell script for managing the installation of software packages (typically in /usr/local). Its a program between stow and lndir/cleanlinks. The approach used by ln_local (based on Stow) is to install each package into its own tree, then use symbolic links to make it appear as though the files are installed in the common tree (see examples for more details). Contrary to stow, ln_local create all subdirectory tree and then create all symbolic links (stow create simbolic links for subdirectories and normals files, so conflicts may appends when two programs share the same subdirectory). Usage Usage: ln_local [options] [do] Action Action : create | delete | clean create : create symlink and directory in /usr/local from current directory delete : delete symlink and empty directory in /usr/local from current directory clean : remove broken symlink and empty directory in /usr/local If do is presents in the command line then changes are made, else NO CHANGE ARE MADE Options are : -s, --source the source directory (default:current directory) -t, --target the target directory (/usr/local) -V, --version display version and exit -u, --usage long help -h, --help display this help Example Standard way to use ln_local: * download source package (.tar.gz, tar.bz2 ...) * extract the archive: tar -xzvf archive-x.x.x.tar.gz or tar -xjvf archive-x.x.x.tar.bz2 * go to archive directory: cd archive-x.x.x * configure the program compilation: ./configure --prefix="/usr/install/archive-x.x.x" * build the program: make * install the program: make install or make install DESTDIR=/usr/install/archive-x.x.x if theres no ./configure in this last case, you may have to edit manually the Makefile. * create symlinks in /usr/local: cd /usr/install/archive-x.x.x ln_local create do * delete the source and archive cd in the archive-x.x.x.tar.gz directory rm -rf archive-x.x.x* you can change the target directory (/usr/local) by editing the file /usr/local/bin/ln_local or use the --target option To remove an existing program: cd /usr/install/archive-x.x.x ln_local delete do To clean the /usr/local directory: ln_local clean do To remove definitively a program: rm -rf /usr/install/archive-x.x.x ln_local clean do If you want to see what ln_local will do, remove the do in create, delete and clean action, so no action will be done.
