A precreation script can create a user-defined section in the archive to provide specific application information. This section is intended for archive maintenance. The script must be put in the $FLASH_DIR/sections directory. The Solaris Flash archive does not process a user-defined section. For example, a section could contain a description of the archive or perhaps a script to check the integrity of an application.
A user-defined section requires the following format.
Must be line oriented
Must terminate with newline (ASCII 0x0a) characters
Can have unlimited length of individual lines
Must encode binary data by using base64 or a similar algorithm
