R mode user group destination
  Specifies that the file is to be removed upon patching. The user and group fields are ignored. The mode field is only used to determine if a check should be made for a previous version of the file.

LIST VARIABLES

EPM maintains a list of variables and their values which can be used to substitute values in the list file. These variables are imported from the current environment and taken from the command-line and list file as provided. Substitutions occur when the variable name is referenced with the dollar sign ($):

%postinstall <<EOF echo What is your name: read $$name Your name is $$name EOF

f 0555 root sys ${bindir}/foo foo f 0555 root sys $datadir/foo/foo.dat foo.dat

Variable names can be surrounded by curley brackets (${name}) or alone ($name); without brackets the name is terminated by the first slash (/), dash (-), or whitespace. The dollar sign can be inserted using $$.
