    Hi all,

    I have just uploaded the very first version of Amiga CLI Tools to the Repo :)
    Grab it here while it's hot !
    TODO:

    - add some more applications (unadf, xdms, etc...) (partially fixed in build #2)
    EDIT: I'm open to suggestions ;)
    - Possible new applications: amiga-fdisk, PowerPacker-decrunch
    - add some previews ?
    - PXML.xml could use some more work (website URLs are missing, so are licenses details, manuals and source code URLs...) (partially fixed in build #3)
    - add source codes to the PND (fixed in build #3)
    - compress the source codes to make the package lighter (fixed in build #4)
    - fix missing licenses details
    - write a web page with links to the manuals
    - Worker: add some addons and ExtFS ?
    - Worker: give the application its own shortcut and icon ?
    - check ppunpack license

    Cheers, Magic Sam

    Ah, thought someone had ported the Amiga's C dir to Linux for a moment - would be lovely to have cd, dir, assign, mkdir etc in linux.

    Hi @ZXDunny :)
    From ADFlib github repository:
    EDIT: I could also try to port AmigaShell to the Pandora :) EDIT: not going to happen, doesn't work with X terminal emulators, only with Virtual Console...

    Cheers, Magic Sam

    Hi again,

    As I said in the first post, PXML.xml could use some more work...

    That package being a collection of applications, do you guys know how to specify multiple website URLs, licenses details, manuals and source code URLs inside one PXML.xml file ?

    According to the wiki, licenses details and source code URLs should not be a problem:
    But what about website URLs and manuals ? Is it only possible ?
    Cheers, Magic Sam

    Assign is pretty much like ln -s in Linux - any reason why you are missing it ?

    Well, it's not "Assign" is it? That's why. The Amiga's CLI (and Shell) was absolutely gorgeous to use. Apart from the #? wildcard. That was odd. Its concept of how drives (and devices) were handled was just so much better than Linux too.

    Hi all,

    I tried all three tools yesterday (lha, unadf, xdms), and they were all working great :)

    What about adding amiga-fdisk and Worker (Directory Opus clone) to this package ? EDIT: Worker has already been ported to the Pandora by commander-beef (Streak ? ), but it was four years ago.

    EDIT: compiled AVFS from git commit bd05dc (August 23rd, 2016)
    EDIT: compiling Worker from git commit 257da2 (April 24th, 2016) --> failed with iconv errors :(
    EDIT: Worker 3.8.3 seems to be working better
    EDIT: compiled libmagic 5.27

    EDIT: some other suggestions here and here. EDIT: APCComm added in build #4
    EDIT: ppunpack from Aminet compiles correctly

    Cheers, Magic Sam

    Hi again,

    Build #4 is on the repo !
    EDIT: how many "license" entries can one put in PXML.xml ? There are four in that file, but only three entries are showing up on the Repo... Is this a bug ?
    Cheers, Magic Sam
