NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     iconbooktocatalog - converts old iconbook pages to	IRIX 6.5 format

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

	  [-convertUserPages | -convertSystemPages ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The command, iconbooktocatalog, is	for use	internally by iconcatalog.
     This program converts the pre-IRIX	6.3 format to post-IRIX	6.3 format.

     In	IRIX 6.2 and earlier releases, an iconbook page	is represented by a
     file and each line	in the file represents an icon on that page. In	IRIX
     6.3 and later releases, an	iconcatalog page is represented	by a directory
     and each symbolic link in that directory is an icon on that page. There
     are user pages and	system pages to	be converted.

     The system	pages are converted at the end of the installation of IRIX
     6.5.  The files under /usr/lib/iconbook/syspages are converted to
     subdirectories under /usr/lib/desktop/iconcatalog/pages/C.	The lines in
     those files are converted to symbolic links inside	those directories.
     Then the iconbook directory is removed.

     The user pages are	converted when the user	first launches iconcatalog
     after IRIX	6.5 is installed. When iconcatalog is launched,	it checks for
     the existence of $HOME/.desktop-<hostname>/iconcatalog. If	it does	not
     exist, and	$HOME/.desktop-<hostname>/iconbook directory does, it calls
     iconbooktocatalog.	This converts iconbook file formats and	creates
     subdirectories in $HOME/.desktop-<hostname>/iconcatalog/pages.  Unlike
     the conversion of system iconbook pages, the user's iconbook directory is
     not removed. This allows a	user with a home directory that	is shared
     between a pre-IRIX	6.3 and	a post-IRIX 6.3	machine, to use	both iconbook
     and iconcatalog applications.

     iconbooktocatalog accepts the following options.

	     This converts icon	book user pages	to iconcatalog user pages.

	     This converts icon	book system pages to iconcatalog system	pages.

     For information about the entire IRIX Interactive Desktop environment,
     see the IID(1) man	page.

CAVEATS    [Toc]    [Back]

     This executable is	purely for internal use	for iconcatalog	to work
     smoothly when upgrading from IRIX 6.2 and earlier releases	to IRIX	6.5.
