5 /* Add notes here */

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 - multiline reads don't yet work for quse/qsearch
14
15 - quse needs a rewrite.
16
17 - Speed is everything.
18 Having your PORTDIR and VDB on the right file system helps dramatically
19
20 IDE raid with PORTDIR on reiserfs:
21 q -r
22 q: Finished 20655 entries in 1.990951 seconds
23
24 IDE raid with PORTDIR on ext3:
25 q -r
26 q: Finished 20655 entries in 203.664252 seconds

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