I have created an application to copy files and resume uncompleted
copies. I think it's a good idea to add this program to portage.
Adding it all gentoo users can emerge this application and enjoy it :D
The URL of the source code of the lastest version:
Steps to Reproduce:
please attach and ebuild, and change the summary to reflect the name of the package and what it does.
What's wrong with using rsync to copy local files? It's already in the base install, anyway.
Please address the previous comments (And change subject accordingly) and re-open
Application name: FFC (Full File Copy)
Description: A command line application for copy files, resume incomplete copies and split/join files
Source code: http://fileseeker.sourceforge.net/ffc/ffc-0.5_src.tar.bz2
It compiles without errors :)
I forget one thing.
I think FFC must be in app-arch category.
You still didn't address what makes your application vastly superior to rsync? Most copy/resume stuff can be done using a variety of tools already present in all Gentoo installations (rsync, wget, etc) - what's special about ffc?
I want to add a lot of more features to FFC. FFC won't be a simple program to copy/resume files. In 0.5, for example, I added the feature of split and join files.
collapses cp , split, and cat into a single binary nearest I can tell, right?
fex, the split bit
split -b 1024 file prefix
for splitting, and for recombination-
cat prefix > file
FFC is a try of make an application that can do a lot things with files so it's
like cp, cat, split, etc. but all in a single binary
Almost two years later, I *still* can't see any ebuild attached here.
