build-gbrowse.pl - build GBrowse and its dependencies
Usage build-gbrowse.pl [options...]
--self_contained full path. Build everything within this path.
--package Move build directories to the package dir
--version version of package for generating documentation
This script simplifies the process of building the Gbrowse core of
the Generic Genome Browser. It can also be used to create a package
installer of GBrowse.
Creating a local installation
All files will be built in standard system paths:
Perl modules /Library/Perl
configuration files /Library/WebServer/conf
Building a self-contained package
build-gbrowse.pl --self_contained /usr/local/gbrowse-november2003
Issuing this command will cause all files to be built in a flat
directory structure suitable for generating a self-contained
pacakge. After building, use PackageMaker and point it to the
directory provided in --self_contained. Alternatively, you can pass
the --package option (see below) to have these directories
automatically moved into the package path.
Building a package within standard local paths
You can also easily build a package using local paths. To simplify
this process, you should pass the --package (boolean) flag. This
will cause three things to happen. First, all system directories
that the build process touches will be backed up (to
$dir.bak). Empty directories with the same name will be created.
Following the build, these directories are then copied to predfined
package directory. Finally, the backup directories are restored to
their original name.
