    Command:

    install

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

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

    DESCRIPTION

           This  install  program copies files (often just compiled) into destina-
           tion 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.
    
           --backup[=CONTROL]
                  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 directories
    
           -D     create all leading components of DEST except the last, 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
                  print the name of each directory as it is created
    
           -P, --preserve-context (SELinux) preserve security context
    
           -Z, --context=CONTEXT
                  (SELinux) set security context of files and directories
    
           --help display this help and exit
    
           --version
                  output version information and exit
    
           The   backup   suffix   is  '~',  unless  set  with  --suffix  or  SIM-
           PLE_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
