       rel - Release resource file

       The  release resource file specifies which applications are included in
       a release (system) based	on Erlang/OTP.

       This file is used by the	functions in systools  when  generating	 start
       scripts (.script, .boot)	and release upgrade files (relup).

       The release resource file is to be called Name.rel.

       The  .rel  file	contains one single Erlang term, which is called a re-
       lease specification. The	file has the following syntax:

       {release, {RelName,Vsn},	{erts, EVsn},
	 [{Application,	AppVsn}	|
	  {Application,	AppVsn,	Type} |
	  {Application,	AppVsn,	IncApps} |
	  {Application,	AppVsn,	Type, IncApps}]}.

	 RelName = string():
	   Release name.

	 Vsn = string():
	   Release version.

	 EVsn =	string():
	   ERTS	version	the release is intended	for.

	 Application = atom():
	   Name	of an application included in the release.

	 AppVsn	= string():
	   Version of an application included in the release.

	 Type =	permanent | transient |	temporary | load | none:
	   Start type of an application	included in the	release.

	   If Type = permanent | transient |  temporary,  the  application  is
	   loaded and started in the corresponding way,	see application(3).

	   If Type = load, the application is only loaded.

	   If  Type = none, the	application is not loaded and not started, al-
	   though the code for its modules is loaded.

	   Defaults to permanent

	 IncApps = [atom()]:
	   A list of applications that are included by an application included
	   in  the release. The	list must be a subset of the included applica-
	   tions specified in the application resource file  (
	   and	overrides this value. Defaults to the same value as in the ap-
	   plication resource file.

       The list	of applications	must contain the Kernel	 and  STDLIB  applica-

       application(3), relup(4), systools(3)
