mono-check
===========

   This is a simple utility to check the correctness of Mono installation and its 
suitability to run ASP.NET applications. 
   It is implemented in the bash shell script in the way that makes it possible and
relatively easy to extend to support various Linux distributions. Currently the only 
supported distribution is the SuSE Linux family of operating systems.
   To add checks you need to create a file with the .check extension and put it in the
scripts/checks/generic (for all operating systems), scripts/checks/suse (for suse) or
scripts/checks/os_name (where os_name is known to the mono-check script, see the
determine_os function in that script). All .check files in those directories that have
the exec bit set will be sourced by the driver script and all the functions named
check_* will be included in the run. Before running, the check_* functions are sorted 
using sort (1), alphabetical sort. Check files without the exec bit set will be ignored.
   To add non-check functions/scripts, put them in the scripts/generic/ (for all operating
systems), scripts/suse/ (for the SuSE Linux family of systems) or scripts/os_name/ 
directories and give them names with .sh extension. As with the .check scripts, the .sh files
need to have the exec bit set in order to be included by the driver script.
   The scripts/ directory itself is meant to hold only scripts included directly by name from
the driver script.
   Both the checks and the scripts directory hierarchy support the following directory structure
for non-generic checks/scripts:

   TOP_DIR/OS_VENDOR/OS_NAME/OS_RELEASE

where

   TOP_DIR - either 'scripts' or 'scripts/checks'
   OS_VENDOR - e.g. suse
   OS_NAME - e.g. opensuse
   OS_RELEASE - e.g. 11.1

The directory hierarchy is sought for .check and .sh files in the following order
   
   TOP_DIR
   TOP_DIR/generic
   TOP_DIR/OS_VENDOR
   TOP_DIR/OS_VENDOR/OS_NAME
   TOP_DIR/OS_VENDOR/OS_NAME/OS_RELEASE

   This scaffolding allows for easy overloading of check/helper functions defined in the 
upper level directories (unless the functions are marked readonly in the files loaded prior 
to the one attempting to override them).

   To test the scripts create an mono-check.conf file in the same directory in which
the main (mono-check) script lives and put the following line inside:

SCRIPTS_DIR=./scripts

   Then export the SKU_DEBUG=1 environment variable and run ./mono-check
