./archivers/zutils, Utilities for any combination of compressed and non-compressed files

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.8, Package name: zutils-1.8, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Zutils is a collection of utilities able to deal with any combination
of compressed and non-compressed files transparently. If any given
file, including standard input, is compressed, its decompressed
content is used. Compressed files are decompressed on the fly; no
temporary files are created. These utilities are not wrapper scripts
but safer and more efficient C++ programs. In particular the
"--recursive" option is very efficient in those utilities supporting it.

The provided utilities are:
Zcat - Decompresses and copies files to standard output.
Zcmp - Decompresses and compares two files byte by byte.
Zdiff - Decompresses and compares two files line by line.
Zgrep - Decompresses and searches files for a regular expression.
Ztest - Tests integrity of compressed files.

(archivers/zutils) Updated 1.6 to 1.8

Changes in version 1.8:

A buffer overflow has been fixed in zcat which happened sometimes when
the '-v, --show-nonprinting' option was used (or indirectly enabled).
A canary byte has been added to the output buffer to prevent the buffer
overflow from happening again.

The option '-R, --dereference-recursive', which recursively follows
symbolic links, has been added to zcat, zgrep, ztest and zupdate.

The option '-r, --recursive' now skips symlinks that are encountered

If no files are given to zcat, zgrep, ztest and zupdate, a recursive
search will now examine the current working directory.

Recursive directory loops are now detected.

zcat and zgrep now ignore directories given in the command line if
'--recursive' is not specified, instead of reporting an error.

Extra trailing slashes are now removed from directories given in the
command line before recursing into them.

zcat and zgrep now show the right error when they can't open an input
file instead of showing "No such file or directory".

Killed decompressors are now waited for, preventing failure caused by
too many open pipes.

Test and document that if a file fails to decompress, zcat, zgrep and
ztest continue processing the rest of the files.

Test and document that if an error happens while recompressing a file,
zupdate exits immediately without recompressing the rest of the files.

The configure script now accepts appending options to CXXFLAGS using the

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.

Log message:
Updated archivers/zutils 1.3 to 1.5
---------------------------------- (From NEWS)
Changes in version 1.5:

 zupdate now passes '-q' to zcmp if specified.

 zcat, zgrep and ztest no longer read from standard input more than once
 if '-' is specified multiple times.

 zdiff now uses '_' as separator if both temporary file names are
 otherwise different. For example 'xxx_file.lz' and 'xxx_file.gz'.
---------------------------------- (From ChangeLog)
2016-05-15  Antonio Diaz Diaz  <antonio@gnu.org>

	* Version 1.5 released.
	* zupdate.cc (zupdate_file): Pass '-q' to zcmp if verbosity < 0.
	* zcat.cc zgrep.cc ztest.cc (main): Don't use stdin more than once.
	* zdiff.cc (set_fifonames): Use '_' if both names are different.
	* configure: Avoid warning on some shells when testing for g++.
	* Makefile.in: Detect the existence of install-info.
	* testsuite/check.sh: A POSIX shell is required to run the tests.

 - Add TEST_TARGET = check
  (but make test fails for now)
