DESCRIPTION

Lib-Install is an installer script for Amiga shared libraries that is highly modular to be re-usable for other installer scripts.

Lib-Install features:
- Follows the V43 Installer Style Guide
- Correctly supports the different user levels
- Install new/update mode
- Uninstallation
- Supports Installers prior to V43
- Highly automated
- Very flexible
- Very intelligent (for an installer-script ;-)
- It uses WrapGuide (if present) for the AmigaGuide documentation if running under a pre V39 system.
- Auto-detects the CPU/FPU
- Auto-detects the OS version
- Auto-detects existing files within the distribution archive
- Installs the optimal 68010-68060 binary if available
- It supports English and German
- Supports source code installation for the following programming languages: C, Assembler, Amiga-E, Modula II, Oberon, ARexx
- It can be re-used by (hopefully) many other Amiga shared libraries since the authors of shared libraries need to change only a few things:
* The #copyright variable
* The #min_os_version and #min_os_revision variables
* The #language variable
* The P_CustomExists, P_CustomInstall and P_CustomUninstall procedures
* The 'APPNAME' tooltype within the Lib-Install icon
