Moving to GitHub, slowly

The software on this pages will slowly be moved to GitHub https://github.com/hilbix/. The CVS repository will be migrated to GIT as well, so the history will be preserved, a bit. See FAQ.

Scylla and Charybdis, runningfor - Tools

The tools are developed under Linux with ESR's paradigm release early, release often in mind.
So you can consider this beta software, or alpha, or pre-alpha, or even worse ;)

Have a look in the download directory for all downloads.
As always here, all you get is the source. No binaries here.

runningfor 0.0.0-20090527-180940

This is a shell helper program to run things for certain time. The first invocation creates an empty reference file in /tmp, all future invocations then check the file inode change time and if the time is reached the file is removed and false is returned.

Following command outputs dots for 15 seconds without delay:

while runningfor 15; do echo -n .; done
