This package is now in beta, so I've therefore renamed this thread to match what appears to be the standard. Any feedback appreciated as always...
I assume this is the correct place to post this. I followed the packaging tutorial on the wiki, and have built my first IRIX package - pv-1.2.0. I've just uploaded the tardist to /incoming on ftp.nekochan.net, anything else I should do ? I can upload it to my own webserver if that helps people test it.
The PV homepage for anyone curious about this software is here : http://www.ivarch.com/programs/pv.shtml
. It's a fantastic utility that can be used to replace "cat", and displays a progress bar on stderr. See http://www.ivarch.com/programs/quickref/pv.shtml
for some examples of what you can do with it...
Any feedback, criticism etc. appreciated; I think it looks OK and I've installed the tardist on my Fuel and Octane2 without any issues.
