	cook_bom - bill	of materials

	cook_bom [ option...  ]	dirname	[ outfile ]
	cook_bom -Help
	cook_bom -VERSion

	The cook_bom program is	used to	scan a directory and generate a	cook-
	book fragment containing a bill	of materials for that directory.  It
	also includes a	recursive reference, via an ``#include-cooked''	direc-
	tive, to the bills of materials	for nested directories.

	Output is sent to the standard output unless an	output filename	is

	The following options are understood:

	-DIRectory pathname
		This option may	be used	to specify a directory search path,
		similar	to cook(1) [search_list] functionality.

		Provide	some help with using the cook_bom program.

	-IGnore	string
		This option may	be used	to specify filename patterns to	be ig-
		nored.	It may be given	as many	times as required.

	-PREfix	string
		This option may	be manipulate the name of the manifest files.
		Defaults to the	empty string if	not set.

	-SUFfix	string
		This option may	be manipulate the name of the manifest files.
		Defaults to ``/manifest.cook if	not set.

		Print the version of the cook_bom program being	executed.

	All other options will produce a diagnostic error.

	All options may	be abbreviated;	the abbreviation is documented as the
	upper case letters, all	lower case letters and underscores (_) are op-
	tional.	 You must use consecutive sequences of optional	letters.

	All options are	case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
	lower case or a	combination of both, case is not important.

	For example: the arguments "-help", "-HEL" and "-h" are	all inter-
	preted to mean the -Help option.  The argument "-hlp" will not be un-
	derstood, because consecutive optional characters were not supplied.

	Options	and other command line arguments may be	mixed arbitrarily on
	the command line.

	The GNU	long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
	cook_bom are long, this	means ignoring the extra leading '-'.  The
	"--option=value" convention is also understood.

	The cook_bom command will exit with a status of	1 on any error.	 The
	cook_bom command will only exit	with a status of 0 if there are	no er-

	The intended use of this command is to automatically generate a
	project	file manifest in an efficient way.  If you have	a cookbook of
	the form
		all_files_in_. = ;
		#include manifest.cook
		manifest = [all_files_in_.];

		set fingerprint	mkdir unlink;

		%0manifest.cook: ["if" [in "%0"	""] "then" "." "else" "%0"]
				[addprefix '--dir=' [search_list]]
	At the end of this fragment, the manifest variable contains a complete
	list of	all files in the directory tree.  This variable	may then be
	taken apart with the match_mask	function to build ingredients lists.

	The constructed	manifest.cook files work for both whole-project	and
	recursive (not recommended) builds.
