solaris - Solaris SRV4 package format

This package format is typically used in older Solaris versions (Solaris 7, 8, 9, and 10). You may also know them by files with a SUNW prefix and may have file names that end in “.pkg”.

If you’re using Solaris 11, OpenSolaris, or Illumos, you might want to use `the newer package format, p5p`_.

Supported Uses in FPM

fpm supports using solaris only as an output type. This means you can create solaris packages from input types like deb, dir, or npm
