Subject description: tinycore repo generation, tinycore package conversion
 

Hello I have giving up on trying to learn how to script without knowing all the internals of a language. I need these scripts to make a Tinycore Puppy. I actually need to be able to also integrate these scripts into woof format.

What I need the scripts to do

1) generate a puppy format package database file based on the packages on the server since tinycore has no pkg database file.

2) convert the tinycore packages to a format that woof can use to add in the puplet.

That is all I can think of.

pupngo had something to use tinycore already.
the packages are just squashfs images, so the work fine with puppy if you just rename them to sfs and use one of a million sfs-on-the-fly loaders

I know that but the problem the only problem is that pupngo's TC uses an older TC where I want to use a more modern TC.

Although it might be used as a starting point? - that is if you don't want to load the packages as simple sfs-add-ons...

still there is another problem with that. pupngo has to old of a kernel to run it on my only pc (which is a netbook from Nov 2011). But I wonder if I can add to TC 4.x's tce-load and scm-browser, a script to convert tcz/scm to .pet/.sfs?

Why?

I can build a cli Racy with the modified TC4 GUI, Puppy Package Manager (still lurking in the cli interface), A mix of puppy and TC packages, and more.

"mix of puppy and TC packages, and more" -a sure recipe for disaster.
