Description Andrew J. Korty 2004-10-11 11:53:25 UTC
Greetings.  This tool is a cross between xargs and a BSD tool called apply.  With it you can do things like

xapply '(cd %1 && make all)' */
       Change  context  to  each  directory in the current directory in
       turn and run make all.

xapply -f 'diff %1 ../version5/%1' manifest | more
       Compare the files in manifest to the ones with the same name  in

xapply -p/dev/null -f 'diff %1 %2' manifest1 checklist1
       Compare  (with  diff) each file in manifest1 to the same file in
       checklist1.  Substitute /dev/null for missing files on the  end.
       {This  is  only  useful if the input files are known to have the
       arguments in a stable order.}

[More examples appear in the README.]

I suggest it go in app-misc/xapply.  It depends on mkcmd and msrc0, which I've submitted.

Fix paths and use make.conf CFLAGS.

'EBUILD' is in the KEYWORDS which should mean that there is a ebuild attached to
this bug.
This bug is assigned to maintainer-wanted which means that it is not in the main

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The sunrise
overlay[1] is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to commit to and
all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry into the overlay.
So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this and submit your
ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

Because this is a mass message, we are also asking you to be patient with us. We
anticipate a large number of requests in a short time. 

On behalf of the Gentoo Sunrise Team,
