install - copy files and set attributes


install [OPTION]... [-T] SOURCE DEST
install [OPTION]... -t DIRECTORY SOURCE...
install [OPTION]... -d DIRECTORY...


This install program copies files (often just compiled) into destination locations you
choose. If you want to download and install a ready-to-use package on a GNU/Linux system,
you should instead be using a package manager like yum(1) or apt-get(1).

In the first three forms, copy SOURCE to DEST or multiple SOURCE(s) to the existing
DIRECTORY, while setting permission modes and owner/group. In the 4th form, create all
components of the given DIRECTORY(ies).

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

make a backup of each existing destination file

-b like --backup but does not accept an argument

-c (ignored)

-C, --compare
compare each pair of source and destination files, and in some cases, do not modify
the destination at all

-d, --directory
treat all arguments as directory names; create all components of the specified

-D create all leading components of DEST except the last, or all components of
--target-directory, then copy SOURCE to DEST

-g, --group=GROUP
set group ownership, instead of process' current group

-m, --mode=MODE
set permission mode (as in chmod), instead of rwxr-xr-x

-o, --owner=OWNER
set ownership (super-user only)

-p, --preserve-timestamps
apply access/modification times of SOURCE files to corresponding destination files

-s, --strip
strip symbol tables

program used to strip binaries

-S, --suffix=SUFFIX
override the usual backup suffix

-t, --target-directory=DIRECTORY
copy all SOURCE arguments into DIRECTORY

-T, --no-target-directory
treat DEST as a normal file

-v, --verbose
print the name of each directory as it is created

preserve SELinux security context

-Z set SELinux security context of destination file to default type

like -Z, or if CTX is specified then set the SELinux or SMACK security context to

--help display this help and exit

output version information and exit

The backup suffix is '~', unless set with --suffix or SIMPLE_BACKUP_SUFFIX. The version
control method may be selected via the --backup option or through the VERSION_CONTROL
environment variable. Here are the values:

none, off
never make backups (even if --backup is given)

numbered, t
make numbered backups

existing, nil
numbered if numbered backups exist, simple otherwise

simple, never
always make simple backups
