function is on target

NAME [edit section]


SYNOPSIS [edit section]

  • is_on_target <item> <varname> [<path>[:<path2>...]]

DESCRIPTION [edit section]

The function is_on_target scans for the given filesystem item (file or directory) on the target device, and if found puts the absolute path of the item into the indicated variable.

The optional 3rd argument specifies a list of places to search for the item. It is a colon-separated list of directory names. If this argument is not specified, then the 'find' command is used on the target to try to locate the item, by name, from the root of the filesystem.

Note that if the target filesystem is large, this operation could take a long time.

EXAMPLES [edit section]

Here are some sample invocations:
        is_on_target bc BC_PROGRAM /bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin
        assert_define BC_PROGRAM

ENVIRONMENT and ARGUMENTS [edit section]

  • $1 is the item to find in the remote filesystem
  • $2 is the name of the variable to set
  • $3 (optional) is a colon-separated path of directories to scan for this item in

RETURN [edit section]

Returns non-zero on error. If the item is found, the full path to the item is returned as the value of the specified variable.
