installwatch — Track installation of software


installwatch [options] [command]


installwatch is a program that is used in order to track the changes made while installing
local software (i.e. "make install"). It monitors the requested command, and produces a
log which indicates all created and modified files. By default it outputs to syslog(3)
using a priority of "LOG_USER | LOG_INFO". This may be overridden by the use of the -o
flag. The log format is as follows:

<return-value> <syscall-name> <argument> #<comment>

Each field is delimited by a "^I" character if logging to syslog(3), or by a tab when
logging to a file.


Set this variable to the location that you want installwatch to copy the
original version of files which get modified. The directory will be created if
it does not exist, assuming that the parent is writable.


These program follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

-o --logfile
Directs that output from the logged command be written to the filename
specified. If the specified file already exists, it will be truncated.

-r --root
Sets the directory under which meta-info and translated files will be stored.

-t --trans
Toggle translation capabilities.

-e --exclude
Sets a comma separated neutral directory list, that won't be concerned by
translation or backups.

-d --dbgfile
Specify a debug file.

-v --dbglvl
Sets the debug level to be used.

-h --help
Show help information.
