setup.types - epm gui setup types file format.
The EPM setup program normally presents the user with a list of
software products to install, which is called a "custom" software
If a file called setup.types is present in the package directory, the
user will instead be presented with a list of installation types. Each
type has an associated product list which determines the products that
are installed by default. If a type has no products associated with it,
then it is treated as a custom installation and the user is presented
with a list of packages to choose from.
The setup.types file is an ASCII text file consisting of type and
product lines. Comments can be inserted by starting a line with the
pound sign (#). Each installation type is defined by a line starting
with the word TYPE. Products are defined by a line starting with the
TYPE Typical End-User Configuration
TYPE Typical Developer Configuration
TYPE Custom Configuration
In the example above, three installation types are defined. Since the
last type includes no products, the user will be presented with the
full list of products to choose from.
