    Rewrite the core parts in C. We now provide librc so other programs can
    query runlevels, services and state without using bash. We also provide
    libeinfo so other programs can easily use our informational functions.

    As such, we have dropped the requirement of using bash as the init script
    shell. We now use /bin/sh and have strived to make the scripts as portable
    as possible. Shells that work are bash and dash. busybox works provided
    you disable s-s-d. If you have WIPE_TMP set to yes in conf.d/bootmisc you
    should disable find too.
    zsh and ksh do not work at this time.

    Networking support is currently being re-vamped also as it was heavily bash
    array based. As such, a new config format is available like so
    config_eth0="1.2.3.4/24 5.6.7.8/16"
    or like so
    config_eth0="'1.2.3.4 netmask 255.255.255.0' '5.6.7.8 netmask 255.255.0.0'"

    We will still support the old bash array format provided that /bin/sh IS
    a link it bash.

    ChangeLog for baselayout-1 can be found in our SVN repo.

10 .SH DESCRIPTION
11 Gentoo's init system uses named runlevels. Rather than editing some obscure
12 file or managing a directory of symlinks, \fBrc-update\fR exists to quickly
13 add or delete init scripts from different runlevels.
14
15 All scripts specified with this utility must reside in the \fI/etc/init.d\fR
16 directory. They must also conform to the Gentoo runscript standard.
17 .SH OPTIONS
18 .TP
19 \fBadd (\-a)\fR \fIscript\fR \fI<runlevels>\fR
20 Add the specified \fIinit script\fR to the specified \fIrunlevels\fR. You
21 must specify at least one runlevel.
22
23 Example: rc-update add net.eth0 default
24 .TP
25 \fBdel (\-d)\fR \fIscript\fR \fI[runlevels]\fR
26 Delete the specified \fIinit script\fR from the specified \fIrunlevels\fR.
27 If you do not specify the \fIrunlevels\fR from which to delete, the script
28 will be removed from all exists runlevels.

31 .TP
32 \fBshow (\-s)\fR \fI[\-v|\-\-verbose]\fR \fI[runlevels]\fR
33 Show all enabled scripts and the runlevels they belong to. If you specify
