I realize tce-wget is morphing into tce-load -w thingy in 2.3 (I'm using the 2.2 release).  However, since I haven't had a chance to try out that new RC, I have an enhancement request for this excellent tool in its current state.  

Enhancement:  When it doesn't find something, say so.

Example:

$ tce-wget thingy
thingy

I often ignore this response and think that thingy has been installed (foolish, I know :D).

I propose:

$ tce-wget thingy
thingy: NOT OK, perhaps you meant thingy.tce or thingy.tcz?

Thanks!

Today I downloaded 2.3rc3 iso, installed to USB via unetbootin, and I see that "tce-load -w" is much more verbose (wget says file not found).  I'm OK with that so perhaps my enhancement request is now moot.

Is this now the proper procedure for using tce-load:

tce-load -w compiletc.tce
tce-load -i /tmp/tce/optional/compiletc.tce

Thanks!

tce-load -w -i compiletc.tce will give the same results as appbrowser Install option.


tce-load -w -i  extension_name.tce      will download and install a tce extension.
tce-load -w -i  extension_name.tcz      will download and mount a tcz extension thus saving ram
tce-load -w -i -r extension_name.tcz    will download and load the extenion into ram, as if it were a tce

tce-load -w - extension_name.tce    will download via wget into the optional directory located under your tce directory, for either a tcz or a tce.

tce-load  -i  /path_to/extension_name.tce     will load a local tce extension into ram
tce-load  -i  /path_to/extension_name.tcz     will mount a local tcz extension.
tce-load  -i  -r /path_to/extension_name.tcz  will load the extenion into ram, as if it were a tce

Of course appbrowser provides an easy point and click GUI instead of the command line tce-load.

How very timely... I just last night thought to myself that it is time to study up on tce-load (for use on my headless microcore system.)

Thanks Roberts!  (And a big "thank you" to you and the team for this great distro.  Every time I use it, I find something else about it that impresses me.)
