Organize your package objects in a hierarchical directory structure that mimics the structure that the package objects will have on the target system after installation. If you do this step before you create a prototype file, you can save yourself some time and effort when creating that file.

$ cd /home/jane $ mkdir SUNWcadap
For example, the CAD application package, SUNWcadap, requires the following directory structure.
This example assumes that the example pkginfo file from How to Create a pkginfo File was created in Jane's home directory.
$ cd /home/jane $ mkdir InfoFiles $ mv pkginfo InfoFiles
