       aide.wrapper - call aide binary for Debian mechanisms


       aide.wrapper [options]


       aide.wrapper  calls  the  aide binary with --config appropriate for the
       mechanisms automatically used in the Debian package. To prevent  damage
       to the database, aide.wrapper takes out a lock and will refuse to run a
       second aide process when there is still another one running.

       If no --config option explicitly given, aide.wrapper will set  --config
       to  /etc/aide/aide.conf  and  invoke update-aide.conf prior to invoking
       the aide binary.


       aide.wrapper hands down all options down to the  aide  binary  verbatim
       and  only detects the presence of --config to determine whether to call
       update-aide.conf or not.
