New package "makeself-2.1.5-2" has been uploaded.
makeself is a small shell script that generates a self-extractable
archive from a directory. The resulting file appears as a shell script
(many of those have a .run suffix), and can be launched as is. The
archive will then uncompress itself to a temporary directory and an
optional arbitrary command will be executed (for example an installation
script). Makeself archives also include checksums for integrity
self-validation (CRC and/or MD5 checksums).
makeself.sh [params] archive_dir file_name label [startup_script] [args]
Shouldn't this be:
$ makeself.sh -h ?
Not that I want extraneous extensions, anyways.
Why are we using the '.sh' extension with 'makeself', again?
man makeselfDoes it make sense that?:
$ man makeself
$ makeself -h
