DESCRIPTION

This script generates a template script, which in turn generates an MSI installation database. The resulting script can then be customized using mainly the interfaces defined by MSI::Installer and the interfaces defined by the other MSI::* modules. This script can be run in batch mode or interactively. In batch, configuration options are specified on the command line, while interactive mode prompts the user for each configuration option. By default, the resulting script is written to STDOUT. If the `-o' option is specified, the resulting script is written to the file specified by that option.
