expect added to repo?
« on: January 04, 2016, 10:48:20 PM »
Can expect be added to the repo?  Looks like it was part of the 3.x repo at least on the x86, long ago.
Thanks.

I'm just learning my way around tiny core...

But I was able to compile expect 5.45 from the debian
source (http://http.debian.net/debian/pool/main/e/expect/expect_5.45.orig.tar.gz).
FYI, it needs tcl.tcz and tcl-dev.tcz to compile.

Edit: also needs source for tcl.  I used version 8.5.18.

expect 5.44.1.15 (I think from the old x86 4.x repo) had compile errors that I couldn't sort out easily.

I built it both using the arm7 toolchain for rasp 2 and ar6 for rasp/B/B+.
Both seem to work fine.

I poked at the old build_expect.sh from the old repo to make the required files for the package
(as it was based on an x86 version).
I used that hand built tcz and installed that and it seems to work fine.

Can this be added to the repo?
Thanks,

Extensions are user-contributed. If you've built the TCZ, please send it - details in the wiki.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
