SHTOOLIZE.TMP(1)	    GNU	Portable Shell Tool	      SHTOOLIZE.TMP(1)

NAME
       shtoolize - Build individual GNU	shtool scripts

VERSION
       GNU shtool 2.0.8	(18-Jul-2008)

SYNOPSIS
       shtoolize [-h] [-v] [-q]	[-o script] module [ module ...	]

DESCRIPTION
       The shtoolize program builds individual GNU shtool scripts (written to
       the default output file "shtool"	or to the specified script) out	of one
       or more shtool ingredient modules.  Available modules are:

	echo	   Print string	with optional construct	expansion
	mdate	   Pretty-print	modification time of a file or dir
	table	   Pretty print	a field-separated list as a table
	prop	   Display progress with a running propeller
	move	   Move	files with simultan substitution
	install	   Install a program, script or	datafile
	mkdir	   Make	one or more directories
	mkln	   Make	link with calculation of relative paths
	mkshadow   Make	a shadow tree
	fixperm	   Fix file permissions	inside a source	tree
	rotate	   Rotate a logfile
	tarball	   Roll	distribution tarballs
	subst	   Apply sed(1)	substitution operations
	platform   Platform identification utility
	arx	   Extended archive command
	slo	   Separate linker options by library class
	scpp	   Sharing C Pre-Processor
	version	   Generate and	maintain a version information file
	path	   Deal	with program paths

       Additionally there is a pseudo-module ``"all"'' which can be used as a
       short-hand for ``"echo mdate table prop move install mkdir mkln
       mkshadow	fixperm	platform arx slo scpp version path"'', i.e. to build a
       shtool script with all modules in the standard order. An	installed
       shtool is usually built this way	via ``"shtoolize -o shtool all"''.

       Use the shtoolize program to build individual shtool scripts in case
       you want	a smaller sized	script and you don't need all of the available
       shtool functionality.  For instance for the classical Autoconf based
       free software package a "shtool"	script build via ``"shtoolize -o
       shtool install mkdir"'' might be	sufficient.

OPTIONS
       The following command line options exist:

       -h  Displays a short help page describing the usage of shtoolize.

       -v  Displays the	version	number of shtoolize/shtool.

       -q  Displays no processing information.

       -o script
	   Writes the output to	file script instead to file ``"shtool"''.

EXAMPLE
       The typical free	software package which is based	on GNU libtool and GNU
       shtool one uses a "Makefile" entry like the following:

	#   Makefile entry for upgrading GNU tools
	upgrade-tools:
	    libtoolize -f -c
	    shtoolize -q all

       This upgrades the three files "ltmain.sh", "ltconfig" and "shtool" in
       the current source tree to the latest versions.

SEE ALSO
       shtool(1).
