SHTOOL-MKSHADOW.TMP(1)	    GNU	Portable Shell Tool	SHTOOL-MKSHADOW.TMP(1)

NAME
       shtool mkshadow - GNU shtool create shadow tree using symlinks

SYNOPSIS
       shtool mkshadow [-v|--verbose] [-t|--trace] [-a|--all] src-dir dst-dir

DESCRIPTION
       This command creates a shadow tree of src-dir under dst-dir by
       recreating the directory	hierarchy of src-dir under dst-dir and by
       creating	the files of src-dir by	linking	them into the corresponding
       directories under dst-dir via symbolic links. When src-dir can be
       reached via relative paths from dst-dir,	relative symbolic links	are
       used, too. This high-level functionality	is originally designed for
       developers to create copies of source trees.

OPTIONS
       The following command line options are available.

       -v, --verbose
	   Display some	processing information.

       -t, --trace
	   Enable the output of	the essential shell commands which are
	   executed.

       -a, --all
	   Really shadow all files and directories in src-dir. Default is to
	   skip	CVS related files and directories, backup files, object	files,
	   etc.

EXAMPLE
	#   shell script
	shtool mkshadow	-v -a .	/tmp/shadow

HISTORY
       The GNU shtool mkshadow command was originally written by Ralf S.
       Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com> in 1998 for Apache. It	was later
       revised and taken over into GNU shtool.

SEE ALSO
       shtool(1), ln(1).
