cvegenversdat(1)	     cvegenversdat Manual	      cvegenversdat(1)

NAME
       cvegenversdat - Generate	version	matching rules for passed on files

SYNOPSIS
       <filelist> | cvegenversdat <packagename>	<packageversion> <conffile>
       [breakon]

DESCRIPTION
       The cvegenversdat script	is a  distribution-agnostic  script  that  at-
       tempts  to  generate  version  matching	rules  for the files fed to it
       through standard	input. It is commonly called from a  distribution-spe-
       cific script (like cverules_gentoo).

USAGE
   COMMAND USAGE
       The command requires the	following arguments to be set:

       o packagename is	the name of the	package	(like "gzip")

       o packageversion	is the (upstream) version of the tool, not of the dis-
	 tribution (so "1.4" rather than "1.4-r1" or "1.4-yourdistro-1")

       o conffile is the cvechecker configuration file	(like  "/etc/cvecheck-
	 er.conf")

       o breakon  (literally)  tells  the script to stop the moment a match is
	 already found within the existing cvechecker database.	  Without  the
	 "breakon"  string,  the  script will scan all passed files, even if a
	 few of	them are already known to cvechecker.

       The script should not be	called by end users but	is rather a script  to
       be called by the	distribution-specific scripts like cverules_gentoo.

AUTHOR
       cvegenversdat is	part of	the cvechecker tool. cvegenversdat was written
