Subject: Purpose of INSTALL_LOCATION Variable

Hi

 

As you know this variable is defined in configure/CONFIG_SITE (or CONFIG_APP in some exceptions) and quoting from that file, this variable is used "To install files into a location other than $(TOP)".

1.       What files are being installed?

2.       Defining this variable in EPICS base does not include the startup folder scripts, therefore anything using the "installed" EPICS_BASE will not find the script EpicsHostArch for example. Is this an issue or this is how it works?

3.       Base on #1, when you define INSTALL_LOCATION in some modules that have UI files or some databases in App/Db/, why these files are not included in the installation?

 

Best Regards,
