Simple Perl Package Manager tracks the files added or deleted from a system by using "find". It can detect modified files using installwatch, make backups of modified or deleted files, and remove, list, or make a tarball of a package.

It records MD5 checksums of all installed files and includes a script to verify them and check other attributes of a package.


/bin/sh (bash)
find (optional if installwatch is present?)
perl - previously tested with 5.6.1, now tested with 5.8.0, but should be ok with any perl 5?

Utilizes, if present:
installwatch - functions without it, but installwatch is needed for adding modified (already existing) files to a package list, and such things as automatic backups of modified/overwritten files...


Is simple... run either ./install1 or ./install2.
It is also possible simply to untar this archive into the location you want to install to, and rename the directory. For example, to install to /var/sppm:

tar -xvf --bzip2 sppm-x.xx.tar.bz2
mv sppm-x.xx/ sppm/

Replace tar's options with whatever is appropriate for the type of archive (gzip/bzip2) and the x.xx with the version of SSPM you're using.

What's New in This Release:

Various fixes and feature enhancements.
