EPM package is a free UNIX software/file packaging program that generates distribution archives from a list of files. EPM Can:
- Generate portable script-based distribution packages complete with installation and removal scripts and standard install/uninstall GUIs.
- Generate "native" distributions in AIX, BSD, Debian, HP-UX, IRIX, MacOS X, Red Hat, Slackware, Solaris, and Tru64 UNIX formats.
- Provide a complete, cross-platform software distribution solution for your applications.
The EPM book, "Software Distribution Using the ESP Package Manager", is available in print form. This book will teach you how to use the ESP Package Manager to create your own software packages that can be distributed over the Internet and on traditional media such as CD-ROM and DVD-ROM.
- This release fixes several AIX, BSD, HP-UX, Linux, and Solaris packaging issues and adds support for LSB and signed RPM package generation.
