Get it from http://188.8.131.52/libtrash-fbsd.tgz.
It's still pretty unstable (e.g. don't try running Mutt or perl or Emacs with it)
but hey, it works. Any other developer want to work on this?
NOTE: Since the base system utilities (rm, cp, mv, etc.) are statically linked,
libtrash will NOT work with them! You must use a dynamic-linked version,
e.g. like so:
# gcc -g -o /usr/bin/dynrm /usr/src/bin/rm/rm.c
# gcc -g -o /usr/bin/dynmv /usr/src/bin/mv/mv.c
# gcc -g -o /usr/bin/dyncp /usr/src/bin/cp/*.c
And add these lines to the end of your shell's startup file
(~/.profile for sh, ~/.cshrc for csh, ~/.bashrc for bash, ~/.zshrc for zsh):
NOTE #2: I am not maintaining this; I'm just putting it out there so maybe someone
else can keep hacking on it.
Hope this helps!
