Moving to GitHub, slowly

The software on this pages will slowly be moved to GitHub https://github.com/hilbix/. The CVS repository will be migrated to GIT as well, so the history will be preserved, a bit. See FAQ.

Scylla and Charybdis, getrealpath - Tools

The tools are developed under Linux with ESR's paradigm release early, release often in mind.
So you can consider this beta software, or alpha, or pre-alpha, or even worse ;)

Have a look in the download directory for all downloads.
As always here, all you get is the source. No binaries here.

getrealpath 0.2.0-20111024-061004

Print realpath to stdout

⇒ ⇒ ⇒ The development shifted to another location. All future versions will be published at https://github.com/hilbix/getrealpath   ⇐ ⇐ ⇐

Actually there is a "realpath" utility for Debian which has some different features.

However I need tools which are optimized for pipe usage, like

find . -type f -print0 |
getrealpath -0 |
while read -r name;
eval eval name="\$'$name'";


version 0.2.0-20111024-061004

download (256439 bytes) sig

Current tinolib support, this means options for escapes.

One note for option '--':

'getrealpath --' does nothing, similar to 'echo -n | getrealpath -'.

version 0.1.0-20081125-015158

Now uses my own implementation of getrealpath, not the libc variant.

This improves behavior on non-existent paths, as the behavior on non-existent files is not defined in the libc variant. Note that the GNU libc v2 seems to work similar to what I did, however I do not want to rely on undocumented behavior (undocumented according to POSIX).

version 0.0.2-20061003-224034

download (132873 bytes)

Another fix in the source for Ubuntu

version 0.0.1-20061003-222950

(132674 bytes archive)

Now with tinolib which allows compile under Ubuntu, too.

The probelem is, that Ubuntu has no gawk as /bin/awk, but my scripts need gawk.

version 0.0.0-20060928-035513

(132421 bytes archive)

First version.
