Create an Infobox Collection (IBC) file

COLLECT ibcpath iifname [iifname...]

This program builds an IBC (Infobox Collection) file from a set of .IIF files. The IBC file contains header information which helps CopiaFacts find and process individual files, as well as the concatenated IIF contents. Infobox files in an IBC file can be processed more efficiently than individual files and a single file is easier to work with than a lot of separate small files.

Wildcard characters can be used in the list of IIF names. The IBC file name may be specified with or without the .IBC extension. If IIF files contain $include lines, the referenced files must be available when COLLECT is run, as they are incorporated in the IBC file.
