lmerge walks through each transcript in precedence order ( highest precedence
transcript listed first ) to create the apply-able transcript
dest. If multiple transcripts list the same file system object, the transcript
line from the highest precedence transcript is written to
Blank lines and comments ( lines starting with # ) are not written to
With the -f option
lmerge does not create a new transcript and merges the first transcript into the
second transcript. The second transcript must be writable by the user.
Only two transcripts are allowed.
If the highest precedence listing of a file system object is preceded with a
'-, the transcript line will not be written to
Files listed in
dest are linked from their original location to a file directory created by
lmerge. This directory is relative to the location of
dest. Since files are linked, all transcripts ( including
dest ) and files must be located on the same volume.
The -C options runs
lmerge in copy mode. Files listed in
dest are copied from their original locations and are not linked.
Using the -f option,
lmerge links all files from the lowest precedence
transcript. If the transcript line for a file is preceded with a "-"
it is also removed from the file directory associated with the lowest precedence
The -n option indicates that the highest precedence transcript has no
associated file directory. All files listed in the highest precedence
transcript must be in the file directory associated with the lowest precedence
transcript. A transcript line in the highest precedence transcript written to
dest, but files are linked from the lowest precedence transcript. Only two
transcripts can be merged with the -n option.
