INSTALL-CATALOG(8)                                          INSTALL-CATALOG(8)

       install-catalog - Manage a SGML or XML centralized catalog

       install-catalog  [ option ]  action  ... [  [ -d]  [ --delegate] ]  [  [ -a centralized ordinary]  [ --add cen-
       tralized ordinary]

        [ -r centralized ordinary]  [ --remove centralized ordinary]

        [ -h]  [ --help]

        [ -v]  [ --version] ]

       This shell script allows to handle a centralized catalog referencing other "ordinary" SGML or  XML  Open  Cata-

       An  Open  Catalog  contains a set of directives defined by OASIS, mostly used for defining equivalences between
       FPIs  (Formal  Public  Identifiers)  and  real  file  names  (see  TR9401:1997   on
       <URL:>;).  The Open Catalogs usually reside in /usr/share/sgml.

       A  centralized catalog is a special Open Catalog that includes only comments and CATALOG directives pointing to
       other catalogs (or DELEGATE directives if supported). The centralized catalog can be the key to all other  SGML
       resources. It usually resides in /etc/sgml.

       The  centralized  catalog  can be edited manually or through the install-catalog script to add or remove refer-
       ences to other ordinary catalogs. This script is mainly destined to software package post-installation scripts.

       An example of a typical call to install-catalog is:

             install-catalog --add \
               /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-1.54/catalog \

       This  call  will  install  in  /etc/sgml/  a  reference  to  /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-

       Here is the list of options that can influence the way install-catalog works:

        [  [ -d]  [ --delegate] ]

       Use DELEGATE instead of CATALOG directives to specify a pointer

       Here is the list of actions that can be requested to install-catalog:

        [  [ -a centralized ordinary]  [ --add centralized ordinary] ]

       Declare a new SGML package.

        [  [ -r centralized ordinary]  [ --remove centralized ordinary] ]

       Remove a previously installed SGML package.

        [  [ -h]  [ --help] ]

       Print a short help message and exit

        [  [ -v]  [ --version] ]

       Print the version identifier and exit
