Re: [Announce] fkdep - commandline script to fake dependencies

Alright, version 2.0.1 is in extras-devel, and is on its way to extras-testing.

I hope you didn't install 2.0.0 from the repos in the brief time it was there, because if you did, dpkg will flail...

Re: [Announce] fkdep - commandline script to fake dependencies

Heads up: I fixed a couple of bugs and pushed version 2.0.1 into devel.

Bug 1 (help text): The help text had "\n" at the end of one of the lines, accidentally left over from either when it was...

Re: [Announce] fkdep - commandline script to fake dependencies

NOTE: new version(s)/changes:

NO MORE automatic installing of .deb file if you run it as root. I know this was convenient, but I think there are several good reasons:

Re: [Pre-Pre-Pre Announce]Black Aluminium replacement body & backcover for N900

Re: [Announce] esceval - Tiny helper utility for doing convoluted things with arbitrary strings in shell scripts.

I went ahead and packaged a new version several days ago (the only change is that the "Description" field in the packaging is fixed), since no one was voting on the one in Testing anyway, so I wasn't...

Re: [Announce] Traceroute for Linux (traceroute2)

Re: [Announce] esceval - Tiny helper utility for doing convoluted things with arbitrary strings in shell scripts.

Secondarily, there are shell scripting use cases where esceval (or something like it) is helpful and would make code more legible, even though it's not necessary.

Specifically where you have to...

Re: [Announce] esceval - Tiny helper utility for doing convoluted things with arbitrary strings in shell scripts.

More technical explanation of the rationale:

Imagine that you have a shell script where you need to dynamically create a list of arbitrary strings. And you need to do this in several places in...

[Announce] esceval - Tiny helper utility for doing convoluted things with arbitrary strings in shell scripts.

I wrote a really, really tiny C commandline program that takes all arguments given to it, and prints them almost verbatim, just 'escaped' in the Bourne/POSIX shell sense of the word.

Re: [Announce] Pierogi - a universal infrared remote control app

I see, and I can completely understand why you'd do so: if it's just a few ints here and there, it's reasonable enough, since the overhead to add some text file parsing to load the keyset(s) would be...

Re: [Announce] SSH Access confirmation

Re: [Announce] Pierogi - a universal infrared remote control app

Quick request:

Any chance you could promote one of the more recent versions down to extras-testing, and eventually extras? I see it's been sitting on 1.0.0 in extras and extras-testing for a...

Re: IPv6 support for Nokia N900 (version 0.2)

Yeah,

Re: [Announce] Aircrack-NG 1.1 (Now in Extras!)

Ran into a build issue with various macros not defined that the newer libc6 includes, but ours in the autobuilder doesn't. So, there will be a delay while I figure out how to proceed.
