Sup guys, just a short thread this evening.
I wanted to share with you a little wrapper I've written for pkg_info & pkg_add that allows the user to search for and install packages in OpenBSD in a seamless and intuitive manner.
pkg_info and pkg_add are great tools on their own, but taped together with a few utils, they function really nicely as a single tool!
So I threw together pkg_search
. It queries the package database for the given string, spits out a numbered list of results of package names containing the search string and offers the user the ability to install the desired package by providing the associated number.
It has no dependancies, it's a simple little korn shell script that uses already included tools.
So, feel free to use it, change it, abuse it, do whatever. It's not supposed to be a replacement for anything, or a game-changer, just a useful little tool, I tend to use it whenever installing packages, so figured I'd share.
Feedback is appreciated of course!
