Enhancing the Functionality of a Package (Tasks)

This chapter describes how to create optional information files and installation scripts for a package. While Chapter 2, Building a Package discussed the minimum requirements for making a package, this chapter discusses additional functionality that you can build into a package. This additional functionality is based on the criteria you considered when planning how to design your package. For more information, see Considerations Before Building a Package.

This is a list of the overview information in this chapter.
