       cf-know - cfengine’s knowledge agent


        cf-know [options]


       The  knowledge  management agent is capable of building and analysing a
       semantic knowledge network. It can configure a relational  database  to
       contain  an  ISO standard topic map and permit regular-expression based
       searching of the map. Analysis of the semantic network can be performed
       providing  graphical  output  of the data, and cf-know can assemble and
       converge the reference manual for the current version of  the  Cfengine
       software.    cfengine   is  a  self-healing  configuration  and  change
       management based system. You can think of cfengine as a very high level
       language,  much  higher  level than Perl or shell. Asingle statement is
       called a promise,  and  compliance  can  result  in  many  hundreds  of
       filesbeing  created,  or the permissions of many hundreds offiles being
       set. The idea  of  cfengine  is  to  create  a  one  or  more  sets  of
       configuration  files which willclassify and describe the setup of every
       host in a network.
