7 - relative qfile doesnt quite work:
8 $ cd /bin
9 $ qfile bash
10 app-shells/bash (/bin/bash)
11 app-shells/bash (/etc/bash)
12
13 -- We cant/wont do relative paths unless we force dot slash ./behavior
14
15 - multiline reads don't yet work for quse/qsearch
16
17 - quse needs a rewrite.
18
19 - Speed is everything.
20 Having your PORTDIR and VDB on the right file system helps dramatically
21
22 IDE raid with PORTDIR on reiserfs:
23 q -r
24 q: Finished 20655 entries in 1.990951 seconds
25
26 IDE raid with PORTDIR on ext3:
27 q -r
28 q: Finished 20655 entries in 203.664252 seconds

31 - Fetching via anoncvs.
32 The cvs module for gentoo-projects is mirrored. You may download a
33 pretty recent copy using the following command. Note: that this is not
34 the official cvs server but rather a mirror so it lags about an hour or
35 so behind the real tree which is hosted on cvs.gentoo.org
36
37 cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@zarquon.twobit.net:/var/cvsroot -q -z9 co -R gentoo-projects/portage-utils
38
39 - Adding applets is easy using the q framework.
40 cp template.c qmyapplet.c (all applets use the prefix of the letter 'q')
41 edit applets.h add your prototype, applet definition to the enum then
42 incr LAST_APPLET. Scroll down the typedef for applets[] and add your
43 applet name following the existing syntax. Please try to keep applet
44 names under 8 chars. Finally, edit main.c, scroll to the bottom, and
45 add your applet to the #include list.
46
47 When and where you can please try to use an existing applet and extend
48 on it's functionality by adding more options vs adding a bunch of new
49 little applets.
