./sysutils/fdtools, Manipulate file descriptor properties from shell scripts

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2020.05.04, Package name: fdtools-2020.05.04, Maintainer: schmonz

fdtools is a set of utilities for working with file descriptors. With
these tools, you can examine and manipulate file descriptor properties
from shell scripts, where without them you might have resorted to a
different language. These tools can rewind file descriptors, switch them
between blocking and nonblocking mode, and examine their inode
information. On some systems (currently only Linux, as far as I know)
they can also allocate, lock, and switch virtual consoles.

Log message:
Retire 'djbware-errno-hack' and associated options.mk cleverness.
Instead:

1. Package makefiles including their own options.mk
2. Packages say "SUBST_CLASSES+=djberrno" to get the hack, if needed
3. Packages adjust SUBST_FILES.djberrno, if needed

Should fix bulk build failures due to multiple inclusions of options.mk
and/or incorrect definitions of DJB_ERRNO_HACK.

Approved during the freeze by wiz@.
