SYNOPSIS:

cf-know [options]

DESCRIPTION:

The knowledge management agent is capable of building and analysing a semantic knowledge network. It can configure a relational database to contain an ISO standard topic map and permit regular-expression based searching of the map. Analysis of the semantic network can be performed providing graphical output of the data, and cf-know can assemble and converge the reference manual for the current version of the Cfengine software. cfengine is a self-healing configuration and change management based system. You can think of.B cfengine as a very high level language, much higher level than Perl or shell. Asingle statement is called a promise, and compliance can result in many hundreds of filesbeing created, or the permissions of many hundreds offiles being set. The idea of .B cfengine is to create a one or more sets of configuration files which willclassify and describe the setup of every host in a network.
