hi all,

based on previous suggestion i started to create a (debian native)
package "pd-pkg-tools", which should make packaging of pd- libraries easier.



I would welcome it.


might have done all the DONTs (e.g. i still have no real clue what is
supposed to go into "class" and what should go into "rules")

I think this should go into rules, but Jonas can give a more informed answer.

i was hoping for jonas to say something on this :-)

so far i have packaged one very simple pd-library with it, and the
debian/rules file boils down to 3 lines (without the boiler-plate).

this package (pd-syslog) is currently also on github
since i was unsure about it's hard dependency on pd-pkg-tools.

comments please

The documentation is a bit wrong: The pd Depends is not handled yet.

is it not?...

Maybe the Depends should be expanded to a new substvar?

that was my original idea.
then i discovered that cdbs can already do it, and so i just hooked to
that: "cdbs:Depends" should get updated to depend on "pd" (if you
included  .../pd.mk) or "puredata" (if you included .../puredata.mk)

at least this seems to work with the pd-syslog example.

however, i'm quite open to go back to "pd:Depends" as well...

Wild wishlist... would it be possible to detect if the installed pd
patches/objects use another library? So that the appropriate depends
are added?

oh, you mean not binary dependencies (as are generated by
dpkg-shlibdeps), but simply if an object.pd references [pddp/link] it
would automatically depend on pd-pddp?

that would be a cool feature indeed, though not easily done.

I think to make it 100% accurate would be difficult, but to make it 95% accurate would be pretty easy with some regexps. Basically search *.pd for these patterns:

^#X obj [0-9]+ [0-9]+ declare.*-lib \([a-zA-Z0-9~_-]+\)
^#X obj [0-9]+ [0-9]+ import \([a-zA-Z0-9~_-]+\)
^#X obj [0-9]+ [0-9]+ \([a-zA-Z0-9~_-]+\)/\S+

Those are quick guesses to illustrate the idea, but that's the basics.
