I've written a script to output the dependencies of any tgz package. It outputs the packages name, dependent library, and the packages that the library is in. It is very detailed. Actually, I caught a couple of missing libraries in the slackbase that are no longer in slack with it.. gnome.
I also realized that some libraries are in more than one package which is interesting.
Was wondering if anyone would be interested in such a thing? I original wrote it because I wanted to make a minimalist slack system and then install things one by one and include only the things that I had to.
It's a pretty small script. I intentionaly tried to keep it as simple and fast as possible, yet complete. All it does is output the details, I didn't want it to get to complicated. Also, the package your checking could either be installed or not.
I want to maybe post it at sourceforge.net so people could use it and then I could improve it with the aid of users comments and ideas.
