lnmerge



NAME

      lnmerge - copy files pointed out by symbolic links to the place where
      the links were defined


SYNOPSIS

      lnmerge [-i] [-u] [-c chmode] [-o owner] [-g group] [-v] tree_root


DESCRIPTION

      The lnmerge  command goes through the tree_root directory structure
      and searches for symbolic links.  When a symbolic link is found, it is
      replaced by a true copy of the file.  This way, the lnmerge command
      collects all the files under the tree_root.

    OPTIONS
      -i[nquire]
           requires a confirmation for each symbolic link to be replaced by
           a copy of a file.

      -u   sets the access to the files copied according to the u-mask.

      -o owner
           Defines owner of the directories.

      -o group
           Defines group for the directories.

      -c chmod
           Defines acces to files. May be any parameter of the chmod
           command.

      -v[erbose]
           shows which files are copied.
