NAME

dacsinit - Configure a minimal DACS federation interactively

SYNOPSIS

dacsinit [ -d] [-n] [--version]

DESCRIPTION

This program is part of the DACS suite.
The dacsinit command interactively creates a minimal DACS federation and jurisdiction. By default, the program uses the default paths that were established when DACS was built and the example paths used by dacs.quick(7)[1]. When prompted, typing Return/Enter selects the default value.
It can also be used to create a configuration for a federation with one very basic jurisdiction based on names input to dacsinit. The resulting configuration can then be extended or customized manually.

OPTIONS

The following options are accepted:
-d
Avoid overwriting "real" files by appending a a suffix ("-xxx") to all files installed by this program. This is useful for debugging, but you must clean up these bogus files manually.
-n
Do not actually do anything, but print the actions that would be done. Can be used with -d.
--version
Print version information and exit.

DIAGNOSTICS

The program exits 0 if everything was fine, 1 if an error occurred.
