Source Body

function discover_install()
        /* Libraries are a strange beast, they are actually references to files
         * There are two parts to a library which are disjunct in their locations
         * 1) The manifest file (stored in /JPATH_MANIFESTS/libraries)
         * 2) The actual files (stored in /JPATH_LIBRARIES/libraryname)
         * Thus installation of a library is the process of dumping files
         * in two different places. As such it is impossible to perform
         * any operation beyond mere registration of a library under the presumption
         * that the files exist in the appropriate location so that come uninstall
         * time they can be adequately removed.
