You seem to have forgotten to bump the pkgrel, which seems appropriate if latin.sh is updated (and improved).

Oh, and is it really necessary to use pushd/popd rather than cd? As far as I know there is no need for a bash script to reset the working directory.

I have updated the package with all 3 suggestions (thanks). I have also made some other changes to the PKGBUILD that I should have made when I first adopted it.

It seems this program is often referred to as Whitaker's words (after the author). I searched the AUR for that, and finding nothing, created a package whitakers-words, until someone pointed out that it was already in the AUR. I have requested deletion of that package.

Perhaps Whitaker's name should be added to the description of as a tag so it will show up in aur searches for "whitaker's words".

I noticed one error in this, it is minor but it could really help some folks, if they ever use it. It suprises me that it is this unpopular I use the devil out of it. Anyway...here it is...


The script that runs the application works okay, but the program takes an arbitrary number of arguments for words normally.

As a result....typing


words amo

results in just running the app.


I recommend that instead of just executing ./words after the popd...we do it this way



#!/bin/bash
pushd /usr/share/words-1.97FC
./words "$@"
popd


That way all of the words will be passed in from the command line

Compiled fine on my Arch x86_64 up-to-date system just now. Thx!

The homepage has been taken down. The archives are still available on the University of Notre Dame's website. If someone finds the new homepage, please post it here so that I can update the PKGBUILD.

I tried it again, and it compiles fine. So, it may be an orphan, but it still works.

Maybe there is an ada expert out there who can fix this. Orphaning.
