H_TeXMeX_H,

I decided to go with checking the signature of each package with gpg as shown in the script. It works pretty well!

Regards,

I like that you guys are learning lots here and also that this script gets to look more like slackpkg every day =)

Mine is only about 43 effective lines of code (without extra 'echo'), and it's gonna stay that way unless someone wishes to add to it.

I don't use all the features of slackpkg anyway, just 'update and upgrade-all' ... which I have implemented here.

Just an update, probably the last one, because the script is finished, I added support for auto-generating a blacklist if you don't have one ... basically with the packages you don't have installed. I think this is the last version, because it does everything I want it to and nothing more. I learned a lot while writing it too. (check my site for it)
