installbsd - Installs a command (BSD version)
installbsd [-cs] [-g group] [-m mode] [-o owner] file destination
The installbsd command moves or copies a binary file to
the specified destination file or directory. It is most
often used in makefiles.
Copies file to destination rather than moving it. Specifies
a group for the destination file. The default group
is staff. Specifies the mode of the destination file.
The default mode is 755. Specifies the owner of the destination
file. The default owner is root. Causes the
binary file to be stripped after installation (see
If destination is a file and such a file already exists,
installbsd removes it before file is moved or copied. If
destination is a directory, file is moved or copied into
that directory with its original filename. installbsd
will not move a file onto itself.
To install a new command called fixit, enter: installbsd
-c -o henry fixit /usr/bin

to /usr/bin/fixit, with user henry as owner.
