NAME
       install-catalog - Manage a SGML or XML centralized catalog

SYNOPSIS
       install-catalog [ option ]  action  ... [  [ -d]  [ --delegate] ]  [  [
       -a centralized ordinary]  [ --add centralized ordinary]

        [ -r centralized ordinary]  [ --remove centralized ordinary]

        [ -h]  [ --help]

        [ -v]  [ --version] ]


DESCRIPTION
       This shell script allows to handle a centralized catalog referencing
       other "ordinary" SGML or XML Open Catalogs.

       An Open Catalog contains a set of directives defined by OASIS, mostly
       used for defining equivalences between FPIs (Formal Public Identifiers)
       and real file names (see TR9401:1997 on http://www.oasis-open.org
       <URL:http://www.oasis-open.org>).  The Open Catalogs usually reside in
       /usr/share/sgml.

       A centralized catalog is a special Open Catalog that includes only
       comments and CATALOG directives pointing to other catalogs (or DELEGATE
       directives if supported). The centralized catalog can be the key to all
       other SGML resources. It usually resides in /etc/sgml.

       The centralized catalog can be edited manually or through the install-
       catalog script to add or remove references to other ordinary catalogs.
       This script is mainly destined to software package post-installation
       scripts.

       An example of a typical call to install-catalog is:

             install-catalog --add \
               /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-1.54/catalog \
               /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-4.0.cat


       This call will install in /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-4.0.cat a reference to
       /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-1.54/catalog.

OPTIONS
       Here is the list of options that can influence the way install-catalog
       works:

       Use DELEGATE instead of CATALOG directives to specify a pointer

        [  [ -r centralized ordinary]  [ --remove centralized ordinary] ]


       Remove a previously installed SGML package.
