Some basic information of the programs in this directory.

Rev: bin/README:1.1

1: + The files in this directory:    -  + export.pike +  Creates a Pike source distribution. +  + extract.pike +  Locale extraction utility for the locate system +  implemented in the Locale module. +  + fake_dynamic_load.pike +  Used by build process. [FIXME: Better documentation] +  + fixdepends.sh +  Used by make depend. +  + hilfe +  Alias for pike without arguments, which starts Hilfe, +  the incremental Pike frontend. +  + httpd.pike +  A very small httpd capable of fetching files only. +  [FIXME: Should be removed since there is a better +  server within Pike] +  + install_module +  Installs a Pike module into a pike module directory. +  [FIXME: Doesn't appear to be fully functional] +  + install.pike +  The Pike installation script, which is run when a +  Pike is installed. It is also run by when a binary +  export is made, to assemble the package it later will +  install. +  + make_ci.pike +  Creates the file case_info.h during Pike build. The +  case_info.h file is an optimized version of the case +  information in the ../src/UnicodeData.txt file. +  + make_interpret_functions.pike +  Creates the file interpret_functions_fixed.h during +  Pike build. +  + metatest +  Utility that permutates over a number of configure +  flags and compiles and verifies all the produced Pikes. +  [FIXME: Update with more interesting flags?] +  + mkpackage.pike +  Utility for creating executable installation scripts +  based on Pike. [FIXME: Better description.] +  + mkpeep.pike +  Creates the file peep_engine.c during Pike build. +  + mktestsuite +  Generates testsuite files from testsuite.in files +  during "make verify". +  + mktreeopt.pike +  Creates the file mktreeopt.h during Pike build. +  + nobinary_dummy +  A simple script that fakes success for all configure +  tests when --disable-binary is set. +  + parse_install_log +  [FIXME: What does this do? Doesn't appear to be called +  from any Makefile.] +  + pike +  This file is generated from the file pike.in when make +  all is built from the top level make file. This script +  is a wrapper for the latest built Pike binary that +  adds the posibility to start pike with the optional +  argument --gdb to run the Pike in gdb. Usage example: +  bin/pike --gdb program_that_crash.pike --arg arg2 +  + pike.in +  The file from which the script pike is generated. +  + precompile.pike +  Creates .c files from .cmod files during Pike build. +  + rsif +  The extremly handy "replace string in file" utility. +  + rsqld.pike +  An SQL proxy daemon. +  + smartlink +  [FIXME: What does this do?] +  + tarfilter.pike +  Filters a tar file applying root/root ownership on +  its contents. +  + test_pike.pike +  The program that performs the test suite when make +  verify is run. +  + unbug +  A GDB frontend for debugging pike code.   Newline at end of file added.
