ept-get for gentoo
I really love gentoo. It's really cool to have a
meta distribution, to have whole system built as you want.
Sure, there are still things to do. For instance, I
can't do apt-get remove in gentoo :)
So, I wrote ept-get. Some people finds it useful, so
now I am publishing it.
Previously genorphan depended on epm and equery. It was
slow, because epm and equery
written in an interpreted language. Now, I rewrote needed
epm and equery functionality,
introducing a new, fast tool for gentoo linux epkg
And if so, may be reasonable to rewrite emerge cause it's
too slow comparable to apt.
Because it is written in an interpreted language.
Currently ept-get depend on epkg
Check, may be you already can use emerge to do it :)
ept-get update (it just calls "emerge --sync" yet)
ept-get install <packagename> (it is just a wrapper
ept-get remove <packagename>
ept-get was created especially for this!
ept-get -h (or --help) shows usage
Q: Why it is written in pascal?
A: Because I like to write code, which be compiled in
When I have to choose, write in
pascal or C I prefer pascal.
We have a high quality free pascal
It produces very fast and small
code, which doesn't depend on libc :)
Q: Anyway, why pascal? It is outdated. (blah blah blah)
A: No. Modern pascal implementations is comparable to
other modern languages.
And I will write in pascal while I have no suitable oberon compiler
