Dilm is a distribution list management program written in C++ using the Qt toolkit and it is released under the GPL.
Dlim is intended to be used for making lists of Linux distributions released over any period of time. The program doesn't necessarily have to be used for Linux distributions, it can also be used for keeping track of any operating system's releases.
When the list is completed it can be exported and the user can then either start a new list or continue the old one.
How does Dilm work?
The way Dilm works is that the user finds a page (such as distrowatch) containing the required information to start writing a list. Using the information on that site, the user can then copy the information into the appropriate fields in dilm and have that information added to the list.
There is auto completion as well as automatic filling out of the distribution url field if dilm knows of the distribution being entered already.
Here are some key features of "Dilm":
· Can refer to information from many websites
· Contains a database of recognised distributions
· Auto completion of the distribution field *
· Auto completion of the url field *
· History of entries
· Easy to use export feature
· Qt 3.2 or higher
Compiling from source
In order to compile DILM and MKList you will need to have Qt 3.2 or higher installed.
To compile the source you will have to run "qmake dilm.pro" and then "make" in order to have DILM compiled, the steps for MKList are very similar except the first command should be "qmake mklist.pro".
