       install - copy files and set attributes

       install [OPTION]... [-T] SOURCE DEST
       install [OPTION]... SOURCE... DIRECTORY
       install [OPTION]... -t DIRECTORY SOURCE...
       install [OPTION]... -d DIRECTORY...

       This  install  program copies files (often just compiled) into destina‐
       tion locations you choose.  If you  want	 to  download  and  install  a
       ready-to-use package on a GNU/Linux system, you should instead be using
       a package manager like yum(1) or apt-get(1).

       In the first three forms, copy SOURCE to DEST or multiple SOURCE(s)  to
       the existing DIRECTORY, while setting permission modes and owner/group.
       In the 4th form, create all components of the given DIRECTORY(ies).

       Mandatory arguments to long options are	mandatory  for	short  options

	      make a backup of each existing destination file

       -C, --compare
	      compare  each  pair of source and destination files, and in some
	      cases, do not modify the destination at all

       -d, --directory
	      treat all arguments as directory names; create all components of
	      the specified directories

       -D     create all leading components of DEST except the last, then copy
	      SOURCE to DEST

       -g, --group=GROUP
	      set group ownership, instead of process' current group

       -m, --mode=MODE
	      set permission mode (as in chmod), instead of rwxr-xr-x

       -o, --owner=OWNER
	      set ownership (super-user only)

       -p, --preserve-timestamps
	      apply access/modification times of SOURCE files to corresponding
	      destination files

       -s, --strip
	      strip symbol tables

	      program used to strip binaries

       -S, --suffix=SUFFIX
	      override the usual backup suffix

       -t, --target-directory=DIRECTORY
	      copy all SOURCE arguments into DIRECTORY

       -T, --no-target-directory
	      treat DEST as a normal file

       -v, --verbose
	      print the name of each directory as it is created

	      preserve SELinux security context

       -Z, --context=CONTEXT
	      set SELinux security context of files and directories

       --help display this help and exit

	      output version information and exit

       The   backup   suffix   is  '~',	 unless	 set  with  --suffix  or  SIM‐
       PLE_BACKUP_SUFFIX.  The version control method may be selected via  the
       --backup	 option	 or  through the VERSION_CONTROL environment variable.
       Here are the values:

       none, off
	      never make backups (even if --backup is given)

       numbered, t
	      make numbered backups

       existing, nil
	      numbered if numbered backups exist, simple otherwise

       simple, never
	      always make simple backups
