       icecc-create-env  -  Create  a tar for icecream distributed compiler to




       /usr/lib/icecc/icecc-create-env creates an archive file containing  all
       the  files  necessary  to setup the compiler environment. The file will
       have         a         random         unique         name          like
       "ddaea39ca1a7c88522b185eca04da2d8.tar.bz2"  per  default.  Rename it to
       something    more    expressive    for    your    convenience,     e.g.

       Set  ICECC_VERSION=<filename_of_archive_containing_your_environment> in
       the shell environment where you start the compile  jobs  and  the  file
       will  be  transfered  to  the  daemons  where your compile jobs run and
       installed to a chroot environment for executing the compile jobs in the
       environment  fitting  to  the  environment of the client. This requires
       that the icecream daemon runs as root.

       If you do not set  ICECC_VERSION,  the  client  will  use  a  tar  ball
       provided  by  the daemon running on the same machine. So you can always
       be sure you’re not tricked by incompatible gcc versions - and  you  can
       share your computer with users of other distributions.


       icecc-create-env takes no options.
