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
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.
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
TYPE Typical Developer Configuration
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.
