       fosslic is a limited command line fossology utility that can be used to
       perform a fossology license analysis on the specified files.  fosslic
       has a number of limitations similar to the One-Shot user interface
       function.  The limitations are:

       ·   The analysis is done in real-time. Large files may take a while.
           This method is not recommended for files larger than a few hundred

       ·   Files that contain files are not unpacked. If you use a zip or deb
           file, then the binary file will be scanned for licenses and nothing
           will likely be found.

       ·   Prints a simple list that summarizes the identified license types.
           The One-Shot user interface function will display the same summary
           or provide a color coded table and a highlighted listing of the
           licenses found.

       -h  Standard help flag, prints usage.

       -v  Enable verbose debugging.

       Perform an analysis on a filed called somefile.

        $: fosslic /tmp/somefile
