Getting EPOR

Latest news


EPOR is an open source (GPL) extensible package organiser for Unix like systems.

It's written to trace filesystem changes (something being installed) and save those information in a simple textual db (but this as any other provided feature is customisable by embedded guile interpreter see chapter Customise epor).

So, when a package is installed using epor to trace it, an entry is created in a local db. This entry contains informations supplied by command line (package name, version, ...) and traced by filesystem changes (new directories, files ...). This is achieved using the ``LD_PRELOAD method''.

Using informations stored, epor let you remove files installed by a particular package or view them in different ways.

The most important epor's feature is the extensibility provided by embedded guile interpreter, which let you to add or modify features very quickly and easly.
