Miscellaneous Utilities — April 7, 2007

I've written a number of small utilities for my own use. Some of them may be useful to other people, so I'm listing them here. Today, I'm releasing svntag, Wild.pm, and wren. The documentation on these tends to be pretty minimal, although most support the --help option. Use at your own risk.

This website has a new home. While the pobox.com links will continue to work for some time, the new URL is http://www.cjmweb.net.

FFV 0.46 released — January 27, 2007

I've released an updated Fast File Validator. The exit status now reflects the comparison results.

FFV 0.45 released — October 9, 2006

I've added the --relative option to Fast File Validator. Normally, when a checksum file contains relative paths (as it usually does), FFV looks for the files to verify relative to the current directory. This makes it easy to validate files using a checksum file stored elsewhere. The --relative option tells FFV to look for the files relative to the checksum file. That's useful when the checksum file is stored along with the files to be checked, and you want to validate several checksum files in different directories.

FFV 0.44 released — August 30, 2006

I've released another update for Fast File Validator. The main change in this version is the addition of a test suite. Also, the --allow-errors option is now implemented on POSIX systems.

FFV 0.43 released — August 19, 2006

I've released an updated Fast File Validator. The main change in this version is to fix a compilation error on POSIX systems that don't use GNU libc (Solaris in particular).
