SYNOPSIS

symports [-dnv] [-i indexFile] [-p Portsdir] [-w WhereT]

DESCRIPTION

symports reads through your ports tree and generates a tree using symlinks for all categories - not just the "real" ones.

OPTIONS

-p directory
  The location of the ports directory you want to work with.
-i INDEX file location
  Uses the index file instead of each port's Makefile
-w Archive directory
  Where the symlinks should be generated. Defaults to current working directory.
-n Display the commands that would have been executed, but do not actually execute them.
-v Be verbose.
-? Displays help.
-d Displays debugging info.

NOTES

symports has been tested on a system with incomplete ports, but has not been tested under all known conditions.

BUGS

Please send any bug reports to eadler@FreeBSD.org
