Uses: wget.tcz; recommended links browser for viewing list, dep, info files. Set paths at top of script.

edit: Requires dialog.tcz as of tc_2.6  (dialog no longer in base)

Subtle bug: "update Mplayer-nodeps" fails with "No match found in tc directory". I think this happens because the second grep in the pipeline here
Code: [Select]
APP="$(busybox find ${A}.tc* | busybox grep -v .dep | busybox grep -v .txt)" &>/dev/null matches the substring "dep" in the extension's name, leading to the variable $APP getting assigned the null string. Some tuning of those grep commands appears to be required. (But hey, update worked on everything else! I'm still grateful!)

[This was update version 2.6, but I copied the offending line of script from the latest version, so I'm confident that the problem is still worth fixing.]

Version 2.9.1 :
 
Added date to database viewer (-vx)

Old date probably means ext is discontinued

I wonder if you could add the updating of apps in/tce/optional? I keep a fair bit of stuff there for occasional use.

Thanks! :)

You're welcome.  Just updated with -idx option for fast downloads using the database. This should provide
nice tools for maintaining the /optional directory.  Thanks for the suggestion.
