From: Carlo Strozzi <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: akanga Date: Sun, 21 Jan 2001 10:37:05 -0500 [thread overview] Message-ID: <20010121163705.A407@polka.texne.com> (raw) Hi all. Foraging around the net I have found a little rc-based gem, which name is "akanga". In spite of such an horrible name (IMO) -- I would have called it rc+ or something like that -- this shell, which is 99% pure rc, offers exactly those little improvements that the original rc is lacking, the most outstanding of which are: * read (for line-oriented input) * mktemp * let * expr * lock Now my question: what about incorporating those features into the main rc source code ? I sent a message to akanga's author, mr. Wolfgang Zekoll, asking about his future plans, if any, for akanga, but I got no reply. My concern is that if the handful of code that implements those features does not get merged into the main rc source, akanga will eventually get out of sync with the latter and become obsolete. That would really be a shame. cheers, carlo -- _ _ _ _ _ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ Contro i brevetti software ( T | e | X | n | e ) Against software patents \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ http://petition.eurolinux.org
