Looking for source code


For twm specifically (running 32 bit -current). There's a README by Pat suggesting grepping for the package but I had no success with that.

/slackware/x lists a twm 1.0.7 package but the corresponding source/x package has no twm. I downloaded the x11 folder and had a look around but not much luck, although there was mention of twm in a slack-desc.

Maybe it's too old? But then 1.0.7 was only added to Slackware 14. Are there criteria for source code inclusion (other than licencing)?

How is it updated, for instance from the 1.0.6 and 1.0.4 in previous versions?

The source for twm is there, in source/x/x11/app/twm-1.0.7.tar.xz.

To compile it, in the source/x/x11 directory:

./x11.SlackBuild app twm

Wow, I am such a dork, right under my nose.

I notice it moves upwards from 1.0.4 to 1.0.6 to 1.0.7 over releases, is this just tweaking so it compiles on the newer Slackware versions? The changelog does look like it's just adjusting things so it compiles, but then I did get new desktop icons when I moved from 14.0 to current :-)
