udimkpkg Command


Converts udi modules into installable packages for distribution.


udimkpkg [ -b ] [ -s ] [ -T Directory ] [ -v ] PackageName


The udimkpkg command attaches the udi static properties to the udi module file and packages the source and binary files into an installable udi package. By default both the binary and source files are packaged. The -b and -s flag are used to not package the binary or source file respectively. If the package defined by PackageName doesn't exist a new udi package file is created. If the udi package already exists, the package is appended.
