The s5 tool supports the following actions:
Copy the template directory into the directory specified by path, creating it if necessary.
Verify the checksums recorded for the S5 presentation files in the directory specified by path. The s5 utility reports both files that have been modified (fail the checksum check) and files that no longer exist yet have checksums recorded.
Display a short help message and exit.
|Record the template checksums into a file in a directory specified by path. Users should never really have to execute this by hand, since it is done internally as part of the blank and update command processing.|
Update the S5 presentation files in the directory specified by
with the new versions in the S5 template directory.
Before updating, the s5 utility verifies the checksums of the files in the path directory, and terminates if a mismatch is found. After that, s5 checks for any files that exist in both the new template and in the path directory, but are not recorded in the checksum file (i.e. have been placed in path by hand after the last blank or update run) and terminates if any such files differ.
If all these checks are successful, the s5 utility copies the template files over those in path, overwriting any existing files and retaining any files that do not exist in the template directory.
The s5 utility stores the checksums of blank S5 presentations into a file named s5-checksums.txt into the presentation directory. This is a simple text file with lines containing of a keyword and values. The keywords that the s5 utility currently generates and parses are as follows:
CKSUM_CMD checksum-program The name of the checksum program to use; the default is cksum(1). CKSUM_ARGS [[argument...]] The arguments (if any) passed to the checksum program as defined by the CKSUM_CMD line. The default is an empty string, no arguments passed. FILE filename The name of the file that the following CKSUM line refers to. CKSUM checksum-line-text The output of the checksum command as specified by CKSUM_CMD and CKSUM_ARGS conflated into a single line.
Start a brand new presentation:
s5 blank ~/txt/openfest/2006/gnupg
Verify if any of the S5 files in the presentation have been modified:
s5 cksum gnupg/
Do the same, but display verbose information about the lines read from the checksums file and the files verified:
s5 -v cksum gnupg/
Update the S5 presentation files after installing a new system-wide version of the S5 template:
s5 update gnupg/
Store the checksums of the S5 template files ( not the real files in the presentation directory!) into the s5-checksums.txt file in the gnupg/ directory; this is actually redundant, as it is done as part of the blank invocation:
s5 mksum gnupg/
