Organizer for /usr/local software packages
GNU Stow is a software installation manager for /usr/local. Using
symbolic links, GNU Stow helps you keep the installations separate
(/usr/local/stow/emacs vs. /usr/local/stow/perl, for example) while
maintaining the illusion that they are all under /usr/local.
This is GNU Stow, a program for managing the installation of software
packages, keeping them separate (/usr/local/stow/emacs
vs. /usr/local/stow/perl, for example) while making them appear to be
installed in the same place (/usr/local).
Stow is a Perl script which should run correctly under Perl 4 and Perl
5. You must install Perl before running Stow. For more information
about Perl, see http:/
README for GNU Stow in Debian
The most common way to use GNU Stow is to install your local packages in
/usr/local/stow/<package-name> and then use the stow command to install
symlinks into /usr/local. Previous versions of the Debian stow package,
when installed, creates the /usr/local/stow directory as a hint to new
system administrators on where to put things.
