NAME

update-reader.conf - (re)generate /etc/reader.conf  

SYNOPSIS

update-reader.conf [force]  

DESCRIPTION

update-reader.conf is a simple tool to manage /etc/reader.conf. The PCSC daemon (pcscd) uses one configuration file for its configuration. This makes it hard for packages to dynamically add information about their own smart card reader drivers. To fix this update-reader.conf has been introduced.

update-reader.conf attempts to fix this by generating the configuration file from separate files which are located in /etc/reader.conf.d. All files in that directory are assembled together to form /etc/reader.conf.

After generation a backup of the old file is put in /etc/reader.conf.old.  

FILES

update-reader.conf will ignore files that match the following regular expression:
*\(\.dpkg-[a-z]*\|~\)$
(ie files with the extension .dpkg-new, .dpkg-orig, .dpkg-dist, .dpkg-old, or whose filename end with a ~).  

OPTIONS

force
update-reader.conf check if the current /etc/reader.conf is a generated file by checking for a special tag on the first line. If this tag is not found generation is aborted. By supplying force as parameter only a warning is printed.
