NAME
     mkrc -- bless files into a	dotfile	managed	by rcm

SYNOPSIS
     mkrc [-ChoqSsVvUu]	[-t tag] [-d dir] [-B hostname]	files ...

DESCRIPTION
     This program adds files to	your dotfiles directory	then installs it back
     into your home directory. It can install files under a tag	or different
     source directory.	It supports these options:

     -B	HOSTNAME
	     use the supplied hostname instead of computing one. Implies -o.

     -C	     copy instead of symlinking	when installing	the rc file back into
	     your home directory

     -d	DIR  install dotfiles under the	specified directory. This can be spec-
	     ified multiple times.

     -h	     show usage	instructions.

     -o	     install dotfiles into the host-specific directory

     -q	     decrease verbosity

     -S	     treat the specified rc files as files to be symlinked, even if
	     they are directories

     -s	     if	the rc file is a file, symlink it; otherwise, make a directory
	     structure as described in rcup(1) in the section ALGORITHM.  This
	     is	the default.

     -t	TAG  install dotfiles according	to tag

     -U	     the specified files or directories	are to be installed without a
	     leading dot.

     -u	     the specified files or directories	are to be installed with a
	     leading dot. This is the default.

     -v	     increase verbosity. This can be repeated for extra	verbosity.

     -V	     show the version number.
