Default pkg_add_it - new version


It's been a while since I haven't posted anything in these forums, but now I'm back

I would like to inform you that I did some work on a tool I previously started, here on these forums - pkg_add_it, a tool for interactive installation of packages. [1]

Now, I've managed to do some work on the tool and did a complete rewrite of it, so now it has much more options and improved code.. so the tool in general can do these things:

- displays dependencies in tree view (something that I think some people might find useful)
- displays what is going to be installed
- show categories and number of packages in them
- search by categories
- regex support
- and more...

Still there's some things that still need improvement, but at least it's a start

I would appreciate if you could install it and test it, so you can provide some feedback on what can still be done and improved.

There are some screenshots available as well [2].

In order to install it, just follow these steps:

# git clone git://git.unix-heaven.org/public/pkg_add_it
# cd pkg_add_it && make install clean
