@Vitrum-cnkj34kr8 I have disowned the package as I hardly ever use it. Please adopt it and add your patch. Thanks!

Interactive stop ("hit RETURN/ENTER to continue") breaks pipelining and is useless for modern terminals (they have scrolling), so it could be set off by default.

prepare() {
  cd "$srcdir"
  sed -i 's/PAUSE_IN_SCREEN_OUTPUT      => TRUE/PAUSE_IN_SCREEN_OUTPUT      => FALSE/g' developer_parameters.adb

P.S. Test on "avis"

P.P.S. This parameter can be changed through the developer settings: type "!" in interactive session (just as "#").

Excellent. Thank you for the package.

For newcomers: 1) Open the terminal. 2) Type "words." 3) Hit ENTER.

That's it.

Given that there hasn't been a new release since 2006, there isn't much maintenance to do for this package and thus not much that can be learned from it.

Do you mean creating package repositories, or just packaging in general?

I was wondering if you would mind if I co-maintained this one with you? I am trying to get into arch user repositories a little bit, and would like to find someone who can guide me into the ways of arch.

Works great now :) Thanks Xyne

The problems should be fixed now. I have added quenyen's git repo as an alternative source in the comments.

I agree that pushd/popd could probably be replaced by cd. They were in the script that I inherited when I adopted the package so I left them there. They don't really cost anything and maybe someone somewhere has some script that sources the wrapper script so I may as well just leave them. If anyone has a strong argument to remove them (practical or philosophical), present it ;)

BTW...I have forked it at my github account, just to be sure that I can always get it.....

If you should need it in the future.

@quenyen Oh, I know that. I just mean it could just use cd instead of pushd/popd.

quenyen commented on 2015-10-31 01:53

BTW....yes the pushd and the popd is necessary, whitakers words must be run from the right directory
