       klone - KLone swiss army knife


       klone [klone_opts] [-c cmd] [cmd_opts] [cmd_args]


       klone performs two different tasks depending on the argument supplied
       to the -c switch: import a site directory tree into the KLone building
       environment (i.e. the embedded file system), or translate static and
       dynamic pages into C files.

       The translation phase is rarely seen by the user since it is hidden in
       the Makefile of the site building directory, i.e.
       ${KLONE_SRC_DIR}/site. Generally, the developer gets an embedded
       version of his/her site by providing the following command sequence:

           $ cd ${KLONE_SRC_DIR}/site
           $ ../src/tools/klone/klone -c import ${SITE_BASE_DIR}
           $ make

       The latter make invocation calls ’klone -c translate’ over the imported
       files to perform the needed translation and registering (pre-linking).

       Note that whenever a source file is added, removed or renamed, or in
       case the embedded file system encrypting key changes, the import
       operation must be done again.

       The subsequent phase, by which the embedded site is linked to the
       kloned server skeleton, does not involve klone anymore. Nevertheless,
       the steps are illustrated here for reference:

           $ cd ${KLONE_SRC_DIR}
           $ make

       That’s all.


       -h     Display a brief help and exit.

       -v     Enable verbose mode.

       -V     Print klone version and exit.


       klone -c translate -i infile -o outfile -u uri [-E] [-k keyfile] [-z]

       Translate the active (i.e. a .klone file) or static page infile into C
       file outfile.

       The -u option specifies the uri associated with the translated file.

       The -E option tells klone to encrypt the file content with the key
       enclosed in the supplied keyfile or in the environment variable
       KLONE_CIPHER_KEY using AES-256 CBC.

       The contents of the translated files are compressed based on their MIME
       type if the -z flag is given.

       klone -c import [-b uri] [-e pattern] [-x pattern] [-k keyfile]
             [-Z pattern] [-z] dir

       Import the site tree starting at dir into the KLone building
       environment. The command output comprises two makefiles ( and
       autogen.dps) and the register.c file which will gather the imported and
       translated site files. The latter file is the glue by which the
       embedded site can afterwards be linked to the HTTP/S server.

       When the -e flag is given, the files matching the specified pattern
       will be encrypted using the key enclosed in the supplied keyfile or in
       the environment variable KLONE_CIPHER_KEY.

       The user can choose whether to compress all the imported files based on
       their MIME type, using the -z flag, or to select a subset matching the
       supplied shell pattern.

       If, while importing, you don’t want to include a set of files you can
       use the -x argument to provide the pattern of files you want to

       Arguments -x, -Z and -e may be used more then once.


       The following environment variable affects the execution of klone:

              If set, klone tries to read the embedded file system encryption
              key from it. It is be overridden by the -k option.


       The klone utility exits with EXIT_SUCCESS on success, and with
       EXIT_FAILURE if an error occurs.
