invcutter - Generates a subset inventory file
/usr/lbin/invcutter [-d] [-f root-path] [-v version-code]
Enables debugging. No useful diagnostics are printed.
Specifies an alternate root path for finding file
attribute information. Specifies a 3-digit version code
for use in the version field of the output records. The
default version code is 010.
The contents of a software product kit for the setld(8)
command are specified by a master inventory file whose
format is described in the stl_mi(4) reference page. The
invcutter command processes a master inventory file by
reading inventory records from standard input and writing
one record to standard output for each record read.
The information contained in the output record is derived
from the input record and from the file attribute information
in the file hierarchy rooted in the current directory.
Input records must be sorted in ascending ASCII order on
the pathname field.
The invcutter command cannot process input-specified files
which exist as sockets in the file hierarchy.
If an input-specified file has a link count greater than
1, all other links to the file must be represented in the
An exit status of 0 indicates success. An exit status of
1 indicates an error. See ERRORS.
The program cannot set its working directory to the pathname
directory specified with the -f option. The errormessage
provides additional information. The nth input
record is not in the correct sort order. All input
records must be in ascending ASCII collating sequence on
the pathname field. An error has occurred attempting to
read the attributes of filename. The error-message
explains exactly what happened. The file named by pathname
is a socket. Sockets are not supported as valid file
types for distribution. File pathname in the master
inventory is linked to n files which do not appear in the
master inventory. Check the inventory for validity with
the newinv program. This informational message states how
many files with unresolved links were detected in the
The following command generates inventory records for the
master inventory entries in PDS020.mi. Output records contain
version fields set to 020: invcutter -v 020 <
