6 # Short Desc: Creates symlink to the latest version of multiple slotted
7 # packages.
8 #
9 # Long Desc:
10 #
11 # When a package is SLOT'ed, very often we need to have a symlink to the
12 # latest version. However, depending on the order the user has merged them,
13 # more often than not, the symlink maybe clobbered by the older versions.
14 #
15 # This eclass provides a convenience function that needs to be given a
16 # list of alternatives (descending order of recent-ness) and the symlink.
17 # It will choose the latest version if can find installed and create
18 # the desired symlink.
19 #
20 # There are two ways to use this eclass. First is by declaring two variables
21 # $SOURCE and $ALTERNATIVES where $SOURCE is the symlink to be created and
22 # $ALTERNATIVES is a list of alternatives. Second way is the use the function
23 # alternatives_makesym() like the example below.
24 #
25 # Example:
26 #
27 # pkg_postinst() {
28 # alternatives_makesym "/usr/bin/python" "/usr/bin/python2.3" "/usr/bin/python2.2"
29 # }
30 #
31 # The above example will create a symlink at /usr/bin/python to either
32 # /usr/bin/python2.3 or /usr/bin/python2.2. It will choose python2.3 over
33 # python2.2 if both exist.
34 #
35 # Alternatively, you can use this function:
36 #
37 # pkg_postinst() {
38 # alternatives_auto_makesym "/usr/bin/python" "/usr/bin/python[0-9].[0-9]"
39 # }
40 #
41 # This will use bash pathname expansion to fill a list of alternatives it can
42 # link to. It is probably more robust against version upgrades. You should
43 # consider using this unless you are want to do something special.
