Default My version of pkg_add :)

Hello everyone!

First this is not a new pkg_add command, it's a pkg_add command which acts a little bit different . The idea about it came when a guy from another forum was asking about how to make pkg_add to look first in some local path and if the package was not there then pkg_add should install it from a remote ftp server.

Anyway, I wanted to share this with you too, since someone may find it useful. It is written in C (I know that I would do the same if I wrote a script for that, but I rarely write scripts though ) and you can see a screenshots here. And here's the code

It's nothing much and perhaps it's a waste of time, but I like programming

Any suggestions on how to improve it are welcome!
