Quick Note = rpmerizor & retro dev files

Posted 01-25-2012 at 03:31 AM by rainbowsally

I noticed that rpmerizor doesn't include so symlinks in the package. (You have to add them to the spec as "%dir" types if you need them.)

As a result the current rpmerizor is pretty SAFE for retro development packages because it can't overwrite the default libs (*.so with no numeric extension).

However, I've asked eric to consider adding a switch so that we can include the symlinks as per "normal" development packages which usually only contain...

Let's Go Retro Now - A RPM Extractor w/ Scripts

Posted 01-23-2012 at 08:10 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 04-05-2012 at 07:44 PM by rainbowsally (Kubuntu no longer has link to experimental/optimization forum on their main page. Can't find the link to the deb package build scripts I once uploaded there.)

[Note to myself: links to kubuntu forum re. deb extraction, rebuilding 2 places appears to be gone. It was in the Experimental section which appears to have been removed. :-( .]

Let's Go Retro Now - A RPM Extractor w/ Scripts

Simple C: Filling in the blanks - A simple memory allocator/reallocator.

Posted 01-23-2012 at 07:32 AM by rainbowsally

No memdup()? No memcat()? No prob.

Today's Features:
  • Simple C/C++ program and new memdup() and memcat() functions.
  • C macros (spanning lines with backslash) to create 'lenient' aliases.
  • Type casting in C/C++ to override sometimes overly strict syntax checks.
Anyone that has used strdup() or strcat() knows how convenient those are. But when it comes to memory allocation and reallocation for other kinds of data the lack of simple standard mechanisms for this often leads to duplicated...
