setup.types - epm gui setup types file format.


The EPM setup program normally presents the user with a list of software products to install, which is called a "custom" software installation.

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 presented with a list of packages to choose from.


The setup.types file is an ASCII text file consisting of type and product 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-help
 TYPE Typical Developer Configuration
 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.
