Project Release Information
This release fixes a problem in star with "star --xattr -find relative_path ..." smake has been bumped to version 1.2.3. Avoids a false GCC warning when compiling the termcap program. The man page sccsfile.4 has been rewritten to make it easier to understand. cdrtools has been bumped to version 3.01a12. The UDF implementation in mkisofs has been enhanced to support all typical UNIX file types, all three timestamps in microsecond granularity, the suid/sgid/sticky file flags, and correct credentials for symlinks.
A bug introduced in the last smake version that caused empty command lines to fail was fixed. A bug in the Bourne Shell that may cause PATH to be ignored if it ends in ':' was fixed. Cdrtools was bumped to version 3.01a11 and Star to version 1.5.2.
This release optimizes command execution to help systems with slow fork() (like Cygwin). Smake now may be compiled to enforce the Bourne Shell as default SHELL to speed up work on Cygwin. A workaround for Cygwin-1.7.17 and newer has been added, and handles the missing PACKED definition and the incompatible change related to BOOL in windef.h.
The Schily Makefilesystem now defines $(SPACE) and $(NUMBER_SIGN), characters that usually cannot appear in Makefiles. cpp now includes a pre-yacced cpy.y to allow to create a fully functional binary on Systems without yacc (such as Cygwin and HP-UX).
This release has been upgraded to smake-1.2.2 and cdrtools-3.01a10.
Supports POSIX SUS issue 7 for loop in the Bourne Shell. The man page of the Bourne Shell is free of Sun cruft and follows the man page man(5). cpp defines __BUILTIN_VA_ARG_INCR like the Sun cpp does since SunOS-4.0. Better dependencies for parallel builds. Support for Debian on the FreeBSD kernel.
Support for the Syllable clone Pyro. Better compliance with cl.exe. Cdrtools have been bumped to 3.01a09.
The "Schily" Tool Box is a set of tools written or
