dcpiscan - Generate an image map used by dcpid to find images


dcpiscan [-R] [-i] [file|directory...]


Dcpiscan searches for images (executables and shared libraries) in the specified directories and files, and prints to standard output an image map for these images. Entries in the map consist of an image id and a path.

Dcpiscan is automatically run at installation time to create the default local map of images found in the usual places (e.g. /usr/bin, /usr/shlib, et cetera). Note: The default map does not include any images found in /usr/local.

If there are significant images in /usr/local or other non-standard local directories, you should use dcpiscan to create a map for those files. This image map should be saved into a file and then fed into dcpid(1) via the -m option to help dcpid find the names of images it encounters while profiling the system. Image maps can also be fed to dcpiprof(1).


Ignore symbolic links.

Scan subdirectories recursively.
