       ggz-config    [--configdir]    [--gamedir]   [--datadir]   [--protocol]

       Install Mode:
       ggz-config --install --modfile=FILENAME [--destdir] [--force]

       Uninstall Mode:

       The program ggz-config is  a  central  tool  and  part  of  the  client
       libraries  package  of the GGZ Gaming Zone.  It can be used for several
       purposes.   Primarily  it  is  used   to   maintain   the   ggz.modules
       configuration  file by installing and removing game module information.
       This is done with the --install and --remove modes of operation.

       Additionally, the program can query the installation  settings  of  the
       GGZ  client  libraries  to assist in configuring the build process of a
       client or game module.


       Query Mode Options

       -c, --configdir
              Output  location  of  the  GGZ  client  libraries  configuration
              directory  and exit. This value will usually be @ggzconfdir@ and
              is where the file ggz.modules is located.

       -g, --gamedir
              Output location of the executable game modules and  exit.   Game
              modules  in  this  directory  are all game clients which are not
              installed into a standard PATH directory,  mostly  because  they
              only run when invoked by a GGZ core client. As a special module,
              the game client wrapper ggzwrap is installed  into  this  place.
              The gamedir is usually @ggzexecmoddir@.

       -d, --datadir
              Output location of game module data directory and exit.  This is
              where games look for their graphics and level data.   This  will
              likely resolve to @ggzdatadir@.

       -p, --protocol
              Query  GGZ_CS_PROTO_VERSION  -  version of core protocol between
              the GGZ server and any GGZ core clients.

       -h, --help
              Output help information and exit.

       -u, --usage
              Print some ggz-config usage scenarios for quick reference.

       -v, --version
              Output version information and exit.

       Install Mode Options

              Specifies that we are installing a game module description.

              Specifies the source module  description  file.   FILENAME  will
              often be named module.dsc, but this is merely a convention.

              Overwrite  an existing module entry of the same name, author and
              version rather than returning an error.

       -D, --destdir
              Specifies that the  $DESTDIR  environment  variable  contains  a
              directory   to   prepend   to   the  path  for  the  GGZ  module
              configuration file (ggz.modules).  The only  known  purpose  for
              this is for creating binary packages of GGZ games.

       Uninstall Mode Options

              Specifies that we are removing a game module description.

              Specifies the source module description file.


              Game module registry for all GGZ Gaming Zone core clients.


              Used during install process, most commonly by the build sequence
              of binary packages such as rpm or dpkg.


       The program is currently unable to  detect  many  problems  that  could
       arise with an invalid ggz.modules file.

       Probably others, too numerous to mention.
