It's actually a good beginner task if anybody wants to do something for the project which requires just a machine and some shell programming. My old script can be improved in a lot of ways, the most productive would probably be to make it incremental rather than one big batch job. (Something like: Test any options for which there are no results, otherwise retest the option with the oldest result.) >While not all combinations tested were valid combinations, many that >failed are.

If one _really_ wanted to burn CPU cycles, my testing years back revealed many combinations where options are incompatible. (NB: Today we have almost four times as many options as then and we're into N! territory here...) -- Poul-Henning Kamp | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20 p...@freebsd.org | TCP/IP since RFC 956 FreeBSD committer | BSD since 4.3-tahoe Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
