WEBDIST(1)							    WEBDIST(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     webdist - Web Software Distribution Tool

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     webdist distdir

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Given an Inst software distribution directory, webdist automatically
     generates the HTML	for a Web Software Distribution	page.  With a Web
     Software Distribution page, a user	can choose and install the Inst
     products in a distribution	directory using	a Web interface.  An Inst
     software distribution directory contains products that can	be installed
     using the SoftwareManager(1M) or Inst(1M) installation programs.

     The distdir argument is used to specify the pathname of the software
     distribution directory that contains Inst products.  The HTML generated
     by	webdist	is printed to standard output.

     This utility must be invoked on the same host as the Inst software
     distribution directory.

     The output	after the successful execution of this utility is the HTML
     which defines a form interface for	selecting software products for
     installation.  This form will contain a list of toggle buttons
     corresponding to the software products in the distribution	directory and
     have titles displaying their descriptive name.  For products with blank
     descriptive names,	the short product name is displayed.

     Following the list	of installable products, are two radio buttons that
     enable the	user to	choose between starting	the installation immediately
     or	allowing the user to view the selections before	starting.

     At	the bottom of the form are two buttons,	a submit button	labeled
     Install Software starts the software installation process,	and a reset
     button labeled Clear Selections clears the	selected products in the list.
     Pressing the Install Software button invokes SoftwareManager(1M).
