./devel/go-homedir, Go library for home directory information

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.0.0nb1, Package name: go-homedir-1.0.0nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This is a Go library for detecting the user's home directory without the use of
cgo, so the library can be used in cross-compilation environments.

Usage is incredibly simple, just call homedir.Dir() to get the home directory
for a user, and homedir.Expand() to expand the ~ in a path to the home
directory.

Why not just use os/user? The built-in os/user package requires cgo on Darwin
systems. This means that any Go code that uses that package cannot cross
compile. But 99% of the time the use for os/user is just to retrieve the home
directory, which we can do for the current user without cgo. This library does
that, enabling cross-compilation.

Log message:
Fix indentation in buildlink3.mk files.

The actual fix as been done by "pkglint -F */*/buildlink3.mk", and was
reviewed manually.

There are some .include lines that still are indented with zero spaces
although the surrounding .if is indented. This is existing practice.
