1 PRODUCT

The POLYCENTER Software Installation utility installs or removes layered software products, registers products, sets up configuration choices offered by products, and extracts a product's release notes. Format PRODUCT [subcommand product-name [/qualifiers]] 2 Parameters subcommand Specifies an operation you want the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility to perform. product-name Specifies the name of the product to which you want to apply the activity. Some subcommands do not require this parameter. You can use the asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters for all or part of the product-name. You can specify a list of products separated by commas (,). 2 Usage_Summary To use the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility from the DCL prompt, enter the PRODUCT command, a subcommand, a product name, and optional qualifiers. For example: $ PRODUCT INSTALL COBOL/VERSION=5.3 You can use the PRODUCT commands in command procedure files. 2 CONFIGURE Creates a product configuration file (PCF) for one or more products. Optionally uses the values in an existing PCF to create the new PCF. Format PRODUCT CONFIGURE product-name[,...] [/qualifiers] 3 Parameter product-name Names the product, or list of products, for which product configuration files will be generated. 3 Qualifiers /BASE_SYSTEM /BASE_SYSTEM=base-system-name Performs the operation only on software products that apply to the named base system. The name AXPVMS denotes an OpenVMS Alpha product, VAXVMS denotes an OpenVMS VAX product, and VMS denotes a product applicable for either OpenVMS Alpha or VAX. By default, the operation is performed for products with any base system designation. /CONFIGURATION /CONFIGURATION=(keyword[,...]) Specifies how the configuration choices will be supplied. Keywords are: CURRENT This is the default. It uses values from the product database, which contains the current values recorded from the last time the product was installed or reconfigured. PRODUCER Uses values specified by the software manufacturer for this version of the product. INPUT=pcf- Uses values from the specified product name configuration file. OUTPUT=pcf- Writes configuration choices to the specified name product configuration file. If no file name is supplied, creates a file named DEFAULT.PCSI$CONFIGURATION in the current default directory. The keywords CURRENT, PRODUCER, and INPUT are mutually exclusive. Each of these, however, can be used with the keyword OUTPUT. If you specify only one keyword, you can omit the parentheses. /HELP /HELP /NOHELP (default) Controls whether detailed explanations of product options and informational text are displayed. The first time you install a product, these explanations can help you decide which options to select. When you perform subsequent installations or upgrades, you might choose the brief explanations to save time. When /NOHELP is selected, you can request a detailed explanation about a question by performing one of the following actions at the prompt: o Press the Help key or PF2 key o Type ? and press the Return key /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Displays messages as the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility performs the operation. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=producer-name Performs the operation only on software products that are produced by the specified manufacturer. By default, the operation is performed for all producers. /REMOTE /REMOTE /NOREMOTE (default) Uses the product database on a system other than the currently running system. This qualifier is primarily for use in command procedures that Digital supplies. Incorrect use of this qualifier can corrupt the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility database, corrupt installed products, or cause other problems. In some cases, /REMOTE can be useful with the CONFIGURE and SHOW commands. When you use /REMOTE, the following logical names must be defined: o PCSI$SYSDEVICE must specify the physical disk name of the target system disk. This disk must be mounted and allocated to the process executing the PRODUCT command. o PCSI$SPECIFIC must point to a system root on PCSI$SYSDEVICE. It must be defined in the following form, where x is a valid system root: PCSI$SYSDEVICE:[SYSx.] Note that the definition of PCSI$SYSDEVICE and PCSI$SPECIFIC specify only where the utility will find or place its database. These logical names do not affect the /DESTINATION qualifier. /SOURCE /SOURCE=device-name:[directory-name] Specifies the disk and directory where the utility searches for the software product kit or kits. If /SOURCE is not specified, the utility searches in the location defined by the logical name PCSI$SOURCE. If PCSI$SOURCE is not defined, and the /SOURCE qualifier is not specified, the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility searches the current default directory. /VERSION /VERSION=version-number Performs the operation only on software products that have the specified version. By default, the operation is performed for all versions. 3 Example $ PRODUCT CONFIGURE EDITOR - _$ /CONFIGURATION=(INPUT=EDITOR_REV1.PCF,OUTPUT=EDITOR_REV2.PCF) The command in this example reads an existing PCF named EDITOR_ REV1.PCF for a product named EDITOR and then saves your changes in EDITOR_REV2.PCF. 2 COPY Manipulates a product distribution kit by either creating a sequential copy from a reference copy, creating a reference copy from a sequential copy, or creating a copy without changing the format. You must supply the /DESTINATION qualifier. Format PRODUCT COPY product-name/DESTINATION=device-name:[directory-name] [/qualifiers] 3 Parameter product-name Names the product, or list of products, to copy. 3 Qualifiers /BASE_SYSTEM /BASE_SYSTEM=base-system-name Performs the operation only on software products that apply to the named base system.

If this logical name is not defined, the utility installs the software in SYS$SYSDEVICE:[VMS$COMMON], the top-level directory for software product files. /HELP /HELP /NOHELP (default) Controls whether detailed explanations of product options and informational text are displayed. The first time you install a product, these explanations can help you decide which options to select. When you perform subsequent installations or upgrades, you might choose the brief explanations to save time. When /NOHELP is selected, you can request a detailed explanation about a question by performing one of the following actions at the prompt: o Press the Help key or PF2 key o Type ? and press the Return key /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Displays messages as the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility performs the operation. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=producer-name Performs the operation only on the software products of specified producers. By default, the operation is performed for all producers. /REMARK /REMARK=string Records a comment in the product database about the task you are performing. The SHOW HISTORY command displays the recorded comments. For each product, the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility stores a chronological list of tasks you perform and the associated remarks. The default behavior is that no remark is recorded. /REMOTE /REMOTE /NOREMOTE (default) Uses the product database on a system other than the currently running system. This qualifier is primarily for use in command procedures that Digital supplies. Incorrect use of this qualifier can corrupt the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility database, corrupt installed products, or cause other problems. In some cases, /REMOTE can be useful with the CONFIGURE and SHOW commands. When you use /REMOTE, the following logical names must be defined: o PCSI$SYSDEVICE must specify the physical disk name of the target system disk. This disk must be mounted and allocated to the process executing the PRODUCT command. o PCSI$SPECIFIC must point to a system root on PCSI$SYSDEVICE. It must be defined in the following form, where x is a valid system root: PCSI$SYSDEVICE:[SYSx.] Note that the definition of PCSI$SYSDEVICE and PCSI$SPECIFIC specify only where the utility will find or place its database. These logical names do not affect the /DESTINATION qualifier. /SOURCE /SOURCE=device-name:[directory-name] Specifies the disk and directory where the utility searches for the software product kit or kits. If /SOURCE is not specified, the utility searches in the location defined by the logical name PCSI$SOURCE. If PCSI$SOURCE is not defined, and the /SOURCE qualifier is not specified, the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility searches the current default directory. /TEST /TEST (default) /NOTEST Requests that the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility run the installation verification procedure (IVP) for the product. /TRACE /TRACE /NOTRACE (default) Displays all DCL commands that the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility may execute while performing the operation.

By default, the operation is performed for all versions. /WORK /WORK=device:[directory] Specifies the name of the device and directory acting as a temporary work area. By default, temporary files are created in subdirectories of the user's login directory. 3 Example $ PRODUCT INSTALL POSIX/VERSION=3.0/CONFIGURATION=OUTPUT=POSIX.PCF The command in this example installs POSIX Version 3.0 and creates a product configuration file. 2 LIST Lists the names of the files contained in a sequentially formatted software product kit. A file type of .PCSI denotes a sequential kit. All files in a kit are listed unless you use the /SELECT qualifier to specify a subset of the files. Format PRODUCT LIST product-name[,...] [/qualifiers] 3 Parameter product-name Names the product, or list of products, whose kit contents are to be listed. This parameter is required. 3 Qualifiers /BASE_SYSTEM /BASE_SYSTEM=base-system-name Performs the operation only on software products that apply to the named base system. The name AXPVMS denotes an OpenVMS Alpha product, VAXVMS denotes an OpenVMS VAX product, and VMS denotes a product applicable for either OpenVMS Alpha or VAX. By default, the operation is performed for products with any base system designation. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Displays messages as the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility performs an operation. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=producer-name Performs the operation only on the software products of specified producers. By default, the operation is performed for all producers. /SELECT /SELECT=filename[,...] Specifies the name of a file, or a list of files; these files are in the specified sequential kit. You can use the asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters for all or part of the file name. The file name can contain a directory specification that includes an ellipsis (...). /SOURCE /SOURCE=device-name:[directory-name] Specifies the disk and directory where the utility searches for the software product kit or kits. If /SOURCE is not specified, the utility searches in the location that the logical name PCSI$SOURCE defines. If PCSI$SOURCE is not defined, and the /SOURCE qualifier is not specified, the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility searches the current default directory. /VERSION /VERSION=version-number Performs an operation only on the specified version of the software products. By default, the operation is performed on all versions. 3 Example $ PRODUCT LIST TEST /SELECT=TEST.*/SOURCE=[AL] In this example, the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility lists all the files that match the selection criteria TEST.* from the sequential kit of the product TEST that is in the [AL] directory on the user's default disk. 2 PACKAGE Creates a software product kit. This operation uses a product description file (PDF) and an optional product text file (PTF) to produce a kit that contains the images and other files that make up the product. During a package operation, the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility reformats the input PDF file to produce a new output PDF. Comments are removed from the output PDF and information, such as the size of each file, is added. The input PTF is transformed into an output PTF in text library format. The PRODUCT PACKAGE command requires the /SOURCE, /DESTINATION, and /MATERIAL qualifiers. Format PRODUCT PACKAGE product-name[,...] [/qualifiers] /SOURCE=file-specification /DESTINATION=device-name:[directory-name] /MATERIAL=(path-name[,...]) 3 Parameter product-name Names the product to be packaged. 3 Qualifiers /BASE_SYSTEM /BASE_SYSTEM=base-system-name Performs the operation only on software products that apply to the named base system. The name AXPVMS denotes an OpenVMS Alpha product, VAXVMS denotes an OpenVMS VAX product, and VMS denotes a product applicable for either OpenVMS Alpha or VAX. By default, the operation is performed for products with any base system designation. /COPY /COPY(default) /NOCOPY Specifies whether you want the product material files and associated directories included in the product kit. The /NOCOPY qualifier can save file processing time when you are debugging a PDF and do not need to produce a complete product kit. The use of /NOCOPY with /FORMAT=SEQUENTIAL is not supported and produces undefined results. /DESTINATION /DESTINATION=device-name:[directory-name] If /FORMAT=SEQUENTIAL is specified, /DESTINATION specifies the directory where the utility creates the sequential kit. A sequential kit is a container file that includes the PDF, PTF, and all the images and other material that make up the product. The file type of the sequential kit file is .PCSI. If /FORMAT=REFERENCE is specifed (or defaulted), /DESTINATION specifies the directory where the utility creates the output PDF and optional PTF. The file types of the PDF and PTF files are .PCSI$DESCRIPTION and .PCSI$TLB, respectively. The images and other materials that make up the product are placed in a directory tree under this directory. If the device name is not provided, it defaults to the user's default device. If the directory name is omitted, it defaults to the user's default directory. The PRODUCT PACKAGE operation ignores the PCSI$DESTINATION logical name whether or not you use the /DESTINATION qualifier. /FORMAT /FORMAT=keyword Specifies the output format of the product kit. Keywords are: REFERENCE Reference format in which product files are placed in a directory tree. SEQUENTIAL Sequential format in which product files are placed in full-product-name.PCSI, a container file. The default is /FORMAT=REFERENCE. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Displays messages as the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility performs the operation. /MATERIAL /MATERIAL=path-name /MATERIAL=(path-name[,...]) Specifies one or more locations in which the utility can search for product material files to include in the software product kit. Material files represent the output of the producer's software engineering process, that is, all files that make up the software product excluding the PDF and PTF. The format for path-name is: device-name:[directory-name] You can specify path-name as: A specific directory Only one directory is searched. A root directory A period (.) following the directory name denotes a root directory specification. For example, TEST$:[ABC.FT2.] limits the search path to subdirectories of [ABC.FT2]. A wildcard directory The directory name includes one or more of the wildcard characters asterisk (*), percent sign (%), or ellipsis (...). All directories that satisfy the wildcard specification are searched. Note that when you use either a wildcard directory or a list of path names, if files in different directories have the same name, only the first file found in the search path is used. When either a specific directory or a wildcard directory is used, the relative file specification on the file statement in the PDF is not used to locate the file. However, when a root directory is used, the utility appends the relative file specification from the file statement in the PDF to the root directory in the material search path to locate files. This is a required qualifier for the PRODUCT PACKAGE command. Parentheses (()) are optional only when you specify a single path name. They are required when you specify multiple path names. /OWNER_UIC /OWNER_UIC=uic Specifies the owner user identification code (UIC) for files created during a copy operation. By default, the user executing the operation owns the software product files. For example, if you are logged in to your own account, you can use this qualifier during a copy operation to assign ownership of the product files to SYSTEM rather than to your own account. Specify the UIC in alphanumeric format (in the form [name]) or in octal group-member format (in the form [g,m]). UIC formats are described in the OpenVMS User's Manual. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=producer-name Performs the operation only on the software products of specified producers. By default, the operation is performed for all producers. /SOURCE /SOURCE=file-specification Specifies the location of the input PDF. If the device name is omitted, it defaults to the user's default device. If the directory name is omitted, it defaults to the user's default directory. If the file name and file type components of the file specification are not provided, they default to product- name.PCSI$DESCRIPTION. The optional PTF, if used, must be in the same directory and have the same file name as the PDF with a .PCSI$TEXT file type. If a file named product-name.PCSI$TEXT is not found, the package operation does not use a PTF. This is a required qualifier for the PRODUCT PACKAGE command. The logical name PCSI$SOURCE is not used. /VERSION /VERSION=version-number Performs the operation only on software products that have the specified version. By default, the operation is performed for all versions. 3 Example $ PRODUCT PACKAGE VIEWER - _$ /PRODUCER=ABC /FORMAT=SEQUENTIAL/ LOG - _$ /SOURCE=[JAMES.TEST.PDF] - _$ /DESTINATION=DKA200:[PCSI_KITS] - _$ /MATERIAL=BUILD$:[VIEWER0201.RESULT...] The command in this example creates a sequential kit for product VIEWER named DKA200:[PCSI_KITS]ABC-VAXVMS-VIEWER-0201- 1.PCSI.
