PostPosted: Mon 08 Jul 2013, 20:47    Post subject:  dash - klibc  

From ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/klibc/2.0/

Had it some longer time, but finally got the whole pkg to compile - therefore not from the latest 2.0.2 pkg nor git
README.dash wrote:
This version of dash was obtained from
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/utils/dash/dash.git

.

It is a CLI like /bin/bash or /bin/busybox ash - mostly useful in shell scripts , because of missing history function to repeat former commands by Arrow-Up key .

Have just tested it few times, /bin/bash time function shows tiny speed improvements -- probably also related that Puppy scripts get bash invoked mainly by #!/bin/sh and not by #!/bin/bash --norc , thus sourcing /root/.bashrc that further sources /etc/profile, all the time .

dash config header says
Code:
#define PACKAGE_STRING "dash 0.5.6"

But i have named it dash-2.0.1 for be found in the klibc pkg .

It is the full statically binary .

Man pages attached - named the files *.k ,
which would need adjustment as
Code:
MANSECT     1:1p:8:2:3:3p:4:5:6:7:9:0p:tcl:n:l:p:o:k

in /etc/man.conf
Code:
SECTION     1 n l 8 3 2 5 4 9 6 7 k

in /etc/man_db.conf
to be found by man binary with .k suffix .
