Thanks for the answer amigo.. Very helpful.. Yeah, I would *like* pets to contain more info, but if it's a hassle for someone like yourself to manage, it's definitely beyond me.. And I have no intention of creating a new package format..

Techno, i believe you did actually, to help me get into from the pets in the wary repo.. i will have to dig it out and have a look..


...All i really want is a nice way of adding more info to the pets like compile options, as akita still uses the old pet specs format file, i know i could whack it in there, and *guess* (?) it wouldn't break the pets *if* anyone else wanted them...

You can always add fields to the pet specs file... I would recommend using awk to parse them and setting. FS="|" or if you are stuck with shell, set IFS="|" before your while read LINE; ... Puppy's existing spec parsers use a bunch of slow piped commands and are really bad examples...part of the reason ppm is so damn slow
