  I had been using #/usr/ports/palm#find . -type f
-name pkg-descr -exec lookat {} \; HOWEVER in X11 that
would take HOURS. Better to a file:   #!/bin/zsh      
       ...for i in ` find . -type d -maxdepth 1 -print
`           do                                        
               cat $i/pkg-descr >> /tmp/; 
                 echo $i >> /tmp/;        
                   echo +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
>>;      done                            
                     chmod 644 filename.zsh; FIRST
touch /tmp/ and FIRST edit the
filename.zsh to (a portdir)    Just got this
working today, 1 19 05 pm... btw /lookat/ is in ports,
excellent...              Jeff Bouquet
