install_release

install an arbitrary software release into a named directory

Synopsis

install_release [-help]

install_release [-f] [-basedir directory] [-log filename] [-wget] [-globuslocation directory] [-o otherfile1...] package

Description

install_release installs an arbitrary software release into a named directory. In addition it creates a log of the installed files for easy uninstallation. This program can install packages of type tar, gzip, or gzip'ed tar. The installation package can be located on a mounted file system, an http server, an ftp server, or a grid ftp server.

Options

-basedir directory
The directory where the package should be installed. When not specified, the directory defaults to the current working directory.
-f
Forcefully overwrite files if they exist.
-globuslocation directory
This program does not come prepackaged with globus-url-copy or the supporting libraries. If globus is not installed in the /opt/globus directory, the user must specify the installation location of globus using this option.
-help
Display brief usage information and exit.
-log filename
The file name for the installation log.
-o otherfile1...
A space-separated list of files that will be installed along with the installation package. The files will only be copied. No extraction or decompression will be performed on these files. These files will be logged in the installation log.
package
The full path to the installation package. Locations on file systems can be specified without the file: prefix, but other locations must prefix with the appropriate protocol (http:, ftp:, or gsiftp:).
-wget
This program defaults to using globus-url-copy to fetch the installation package. This option specifies that this program should use wget for http and ftp requests and Perl's copy function for file system requests. wget must be installed on the machine and must be in the user's path.

Exit Status

install_release will exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and non-zero otherwise.
