This module traces any dynamically linked program for
filesystem-modifying calls such as rename, open64, unlink, remove
etc. It will save all the files before they were modified. It can
then undo and redo the changes as often as you want.
This module sounds very much like something you would probbaly only
use during development of an application. So Devel:: would seem to fit
I think Devel would be another total misnomer :( Where would you put RPM
into? I guess RPM is certainly more an archiver than a devel tool.
The problem with that module is that, at the moment, it is just some kind
of installation manager: you can install a new version of a program,
test it, and then revert the installation completely (unfortunately you
need glibc-2.1 at the moment, although it worked with almost any elf
system _except_ glibc2.1 some time ago. Given more bug-reports this would
certainly be fixed ;)
It might be that, in the distant future, it would become something like
ltrace (library call tracer), which might justify a rename, but it is very
far from that.
Just to clarify, you do:
# cd ~/sources/gimp
# appman -v install gimp make install
(test, uh-oh it's borken, restore the older version)
# appman -v swap gimp
(get rid of that broken new gimp)
# appman delete gimp
I am not entirely happy with File:: as well, but it might be better (at
the moment) than App:: indeed.
