/usr/sbin/pkg_updating, but it's flaky since /usr/ports/UPDATING is human written. It's a school example of a file that should really be XML: human readable/writeable and machine parseable, but it's not. So we end up with entries like: AFFECTS: users of Japanese and Chinese fonts AFFECTS: users of linux Fedora 8 infrastructure ports AFFECTS: users of Tcl/Tk which cannot ever be translated to ports by a machine. -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
