6. IPF Script Files

Package Foundry scripts have the extension .pfs and are used to store settings for the GUI, and to store directives for the IPF command-line tool. Each line in a .pfs file contains a directive for the Package Foundry. Blank lines are ignored, and text on a line after the symbol '#' is a comment and ignored.

Relative paths in the script file are relative to the directory the script file is contained in, umless otherwise stated in the following sections. Absolute paths are also allowed.

All items in the script file have the form

item-name arg1, arg2, ...

where most items take a single argument but some take a second. Arguments containing spaces need to be double-quoted.
