NAME
       setup.types - epm gui setup types file format.

DESCRIPTION
       The  EPM	 setup(1)  program  normally  presents the user	with a list of
       software	products to install, which is called a "custom"	 software  in-
       stallation.

       If  a  file called setup.types is present in the	package	directory, the
       user will instead be presented with a list of installation types.  Each
       type  has an associated product list which determines the products that
       are installed by	default.  If a type has	no  products  associated  with
       it,  then  it  is treated as a custom installation and the user is pre-
       sented with a list of packages to choose	from.

FILE FORMAT
       The setup.types file is an ASCII	text file consisting of	type and prod-
       uct  lines.  Comments can be inserted by	starting a line	with the pound
       sign (#).  Each installation type is defined by a  line	starting  with
       the  word  TYPE.	 Products are defined by a line	starting with the word
       INSTALL:

     TYPE Typical End-User Configuration
     INSTALL foo
     INSTALL foo-help
     TYPE Typical Developer Configuration
     INSTALL foo
     INSTALL foo-help
     INSTALL foo-devel
     INSTALL foo-examples
     TYPE Custom Configuration

       In the example above, three installation	types are defined.  Since  the
       last  type  includes  no	 products, the user will be presented with the
       full list of products to	choose from.
