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

       shtool - The GNU Portable Shell Tool

       GNU shtool 2.0.8 (18-Jul-2008)

       shtool [ global_options ] command [ command_options ] [ command_args ]

       GNU shtool is a compilation of small but very stable and portable shell scripts into a
       single shell tool. All ingredients were in successful use over many years in various free
       software projects. The compiled shtool script is intended to be used inside the source
       tree of those free software packages.  There it can take over various (usually non-
       portable) tasks related to the building and installation of such packages.

       The following global options are available for shtool. Any commands are ignored if one of
       them is present on the shtool command line.

       -h, --help
           Displays a short help page describing the usage of shtool and it's ingredient commands
           in a compact way.

       -v, --version
           Displays the version number of shtool.

       -d, --debug
           Displays shell trace messages for debugging purposes.

       -r, --recreate
           Recreate the shtool script with its own individual shtoolize(1) call.

       The following commands are provided by shtool. They are all called via ""shtool" command".
       Any command options command_opts and arguments command_args are specific to the particular
       command and are described in the corresponding manual page shtool_command(1).  The
       commands are listed here sorted by topic, i.e., related commands are listed side-by-side.

       Some scripts contained in GNU shtool were already written in 1994 by Ralf S. Engelschall
       for use inside some private source trees. Then they evolved into more elaborated versions
       over the years and were used in various free software projects like ePerl, WML, iSelect,
       gFONT, etc.  They were complemented with other scripts from the author which he wrote in
       March 1998 for the ``Apache Autoconf-style Interface'' (APACI) for Apache 1.3. In April
       1999 the shtool package was created out of the accumulated master versions of the scripts
       and in June 1999 it entered the status of an official GNU program and this way finally
       joined the group of GNU autoconf, GNU automake and GNU libtool.
