About the Ape Base Compile System

The Ape Base Compile System is a set of bash scripts to leverage both ESP EPM (http://www.epmhome.org/) and MREPO (http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/mrepo/) in maintaining Red Hat based systems that require custom and secluded binaries. If you need "Ape" to be an acronym, then go for "Application Packaging Environment" as christened by Mark Stokan. The original notion for the name was that this system was "aping" the performance of several tasks.

Ape Root Directories

These are the default directories created by installing Ape Base Compile System. You will undoubtably make some of your own as well.

Custom User Script General Usage
Tutorials and Examples

These tutorials will take you in order from simple to complex.

Ape User Configuration Variables

The most commonly useful of thes variables are already in the template "_blank_build_script-copy_to_create_your_own.sh" for use in creating your own scripts. There are several here that are not normally included in that template which may be useful to you for more complicated tasks. Processing a compile task begins as these variables are initialized where possible in "./include/ape_config.sh" and the settings in your coopy of "_blank_build_script-copy_to_create_your_own.sh" overwrites the values where needed. Finally, "./include/scripts_common.sh" performs any needed validation before starting the requested task.
