-i <assembly_path> [-check_refs] [-package NAME] [-root ROOTDIR] [-gacdir GACDIR]
Installs an assembly into the global assembly cache. <assembly_path>
is the name of the file that contains the assembly manifest
The -package option can be used to also create a directory in in
prefix/lib/mono with the name NAME, and a symlink is created from
NAME/assembly_name to the assembly on the GAC. This is used so
developers can reference a set of libraries at once.
The -root option is used to specify the "libdir" value of an installation
prefix which differs from the prefix of the system GAC.
Typical automake usage is "-root $(DESTDIR)$(prefix)/lib".
To access assemblies installed to a prefix other than the mono prefix,
it is necessary to set the MONO_GAC_PREFIX environment variable.
The -gacdir option is included for backward compatibility but is not
recommended for new code. Use the -root option instead.
The -check_refs option is used to ensure that the assembly being
installed into the GAC does not reference any non strong named
assemblies. Assemblies being installed to the GAC should not reference
non strong named assemblies, however the is an optional check.
-l [assembly_name] [-root ROOTDIR] [-gacdir GACDIR]
Lists the contents of the global assembly cache. When the
<assembly_name> parameter is specified only matching assemblies are
-u <assembly_display_name> [-package NAME] [-root ROOTDIR] [-gacdir GACDIR]
Uninstalls an assembly from the global assembly cache.
<assembly_display_name> is the name of the assembly (partial or
fully qualified) to remove from the global assembly cache. If a
partial name is specified all matching assemblies will be
uninstalled. As opposed to the install option that takes a filename,
this takes as an argument the assembly name, which looks like this:
MyLibrary.Something, version=184.108.40.206, publicKeyToken=xxxx,culture=neutral
Notice that you can have spaces in the command line. There is no need
to quote them.
Performs a greedy removal. If you only specify one
component like, "MyLibrary.Something", it will remove all versions of
-us <assembly_path> [-package NAME] [-root ROOTDIR] [-gacdir GACDIR] Uninstalls an assembly using the specified assemblys full name.
<assembly path> is the path to an assembly. The full assembly name
is retrieved from the specified assembly if there is an assembly in
the GAC with a matching name, it is removed. Unlike the -u option this
option takes a file name, like this:
Example: -us myDll.dll
-ul <assembly_list_file> [-package NAME] [-root ROOTDIR] [-gacdir GACDIR] Uninstalls one or more assemblies from the global assembly cache.
<assembly_list_file> is the path to a test file containing a list of
assembly names on separate lines.
Example -ul assembly_list.txt
