install [-cs] [-l flags] [-o own] [-g grp] [-m mod] [files...] dir
- Copy the file. This is the default behavior; the flag is maintained for backwards compatibility only.
- Create directories. Missing parent directories are created as required.
- -g group
- Specify a group.
- -l linkflags
- Instead of copying the file make a link to the source. The type of the link is determined by the linkflags argument. Valid linkflags are: h (hard), s (symbolic).
- -m mode
- Specify an alternative mode. The default mode is set to rwxr-xr-x (0755). The specified mode may be either an octal or symbolic value; see chmod(1) for a description of possible mode values.
- -o owner
- Specify an owner.
