Between 2 successive versions of an operating system, it is frequent that a software compiled on the previous version is also working properly with the new version (e.g. Solaris7 and Solaris8)
So, when a new version of an operating system is installed, it would be painful to re-link, re-register every tool in the new version of the operating system! apv-osmirror is the solution to this ``problem''. The registration of tools can be replicated from one O.S. to another one (or another version of the same O.S.)
apv-osmirror [-o osname/osver] [ -d osname/osver] -t tool[/version] [ -v version -t tool [ -v version ...]]
Of course, the source and the destination cannot be the same, hence at least one of the -o or -d options is mandatory.
tool(s)(toolname) to mirror, this option can appear several times to mirror several tools.
version(s)to mirror, this option can appear several times to mirror several versions of the same tool.
If this option is ommited, all the versions are mirrored
