Customize Symantec LiveUpdate

Can you post a link to where you got the info on running LiveUpdate from the Terminal? I've been all over Symantec's website, but can't find any info on doing this.

Customize Symantec LiveUpdate
Authored by: jlevitsk on Feb 19, '04 12:47:34AM

I actually figured it out on my own. I submitted an article for Symantec to consider posting in their KB. I maintain my own little hints on http://www.foist.org/ so there are a couple more things I documented there. I submitted them here but they haven't posted yet.

I figured this all out by using the strings command to look at the strings within LiveUpdate. I knew about the -update switch and so I looked at what strings were near that in the binary. Ultimately I got the exact answers by looking at the installer and I found where they kick off LiveUpdate during install because the one during install exits when it is done.
