Package dependency tree in pkg order
I have used the perl 5 modules contained in the pkg-order
package to create two more utilities, like pkg-order, all the
executables are merely small wrappers around the librarycalls.
1) pkg-nodep -- List of packages that no other package pre-depends or
depends on (optionally, recommends and/or suggestsd can be heeded
as well). I learnt that I no longer need libc4 -- the other libs I
no longer have packages dependent on are:
libbfd188.8.131.52 libbfd2.8 libbfd2.8.1-dev libc4 libc6-doc
libc6-pic libcgi-perl libcgi-pm-perl libdbi-perl
libdl1-altdev libdnd1-dev libelf0-dev libg++272-dbg
libg++272-dev libgdbm1-altdev libgdbmg1-dev libgif2-dev
libgpc2 libident libjpeg-dev libjpeg-progs libmagick-dev
libmsql1 libpam-dbg libpam-doc libpng0-dev libproc-dev
libpwdb-dbg libpwdb-doc libreadline2-altdev libreadlineg2-dev
libtclobjc1 libtiff3-dev libtiff3-gif libtool
2) pkg-deptree (shows an list of dependencies like shown below; the
problem, of course, is that a package may have multiple
dependencies and dependents; unless we allow infinite duplication,
one has to restrict how often a package appears. I allow a package
to only appear as many times as needed, but it's dependants only
appear under the first occurance (that is, the tree whose root is
the package is expanded only once). This can be changed.
I have yet to upload the package which has pkg-deptree, I'll
do that soon. Is there any interest in these toys?
