.SH NAME
manifake \- creates a MANIFEST.new out of a MANIFEST file
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B manifake
.SH DESCRIPTION
.I Manifake
is a real simpleminded program that takes a MANIFEST file, such as one
produced by a shar program, and creates a MANIFEST.new file ready to be
used by all the dist programs. What it does is that all archive numbers
are removed and the optional leading comments up to a dashed-line are
thrown away.
.PP
.I Manifake
will typically be used when converting an existing package
to use \fImetaconfig\fR or any other dist utility.
