The GNU portable shell tool.

A compilation of portable shell scripts into a single shell tool. The compiled program is meant to be used inside the source tree of other free software packages, where it replaces various (usually non-portable) build- and install-related tasks, especially old mkdir.sh, install.sh, and related scripts.
