What is this page about, anyway? It doesn’t say anything about my family, my other interests outside work, etc. If you already know about me and my interests, fine. If you don’t, fine. Which begs the question, what is this page doing here? Well, I’ve been asked a couple of times to post various code I’ve written, so here is a collection of code: shell scripts, awk scripts, Tcl scripts, and C programs. Some of them really are useful and some of them probably aren’t. A couple of them aren’t even my own work, but are so simple, cool, and useful, that I’ve included them below (their authors are identified in the script description).
make configworks for your program or you have a shell script which copies your two files to the appropriate place you can use checkinstall. Just go to the directory where your makefile is in and call it with the parameter
-R(for RPM) and optionally with the installation script.
