Description Waninkoko 2005-03-06 06:33:58 UTC

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:


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2005-03-13 01:54:14 UTC
please attach and ebuild, and change the summary to reflect the name of the package and what it does.
Comment 2 Jeremy Hanmer 2005-03-13 02:56:31 UTC
What's wrong with using rsync to copy local files?  It's already in the base install, anyway.
Comment 3 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-17 13:27:06 UTC
Please address the previous comments (And change subject accordingly) and re-open
Comment 4 Waninkoko 2005-04-30 10:49:44 UTC
Application name: FFC (Full File Copy)
Version: 0.5
Description: A command line application for copy files, resume incomplete copies and split/join files
License: GPL

Source code:

It compiles without errors :)
Comment 5 Waninkoko 2005-04-30 10:51:37 UTC
I forget one thing.


I think FFC must be in app-arch category.
Comment 6 Alex Howells (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-02 12:02:12 UTC
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?
Comment 7 Waninkoko 2005-05-05 10:11:14 UTC
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.
Comment 8 Brian Harring (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-27 05:39:09 UTC
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
Comment 9 Waninkoko 2005-05-27 07:29:30 UTC
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.
