I read at the project idea page about the UPDATING parser and displayer.
I wrote a small script that parses and displays entries from
With the -p argument only entries for the given portname are shown.
Without the -p argument entries for all installed ports are shown. The
-f defines an alternative location of the UPDATING file. With the -d
argument only newer entries than the given date are shown.
Shows all entries of all installed ports:
Shows all entries of all installed ports since 2007-01-01
# pkg_updating -d 20070101
Shows all entries for all apache ports
# pkg_updating -p apache
Shows all apache entries since 2006-01-01
# pkg_updating -p apache -d 20060101
Defines that the UPDATING file is in /tmp and shows all entries of all
# pkg_updating -f /tmp/UPDATING
- pkg_updating needs a colon at the end of the date line. Some entries
don't have this colon. This patch adds the missing colons:
pkg_updating is available here:
Comments, suggestions and patches are very welcome!
