2010-12-27: wgClibs-3.0 has been released

After a long long time I have completed the new release of my C libraries. I have rewritten many modules. This release will allows me to write the new wlxdb release. Do not you think computer developing is like a huge Pandora's box??

Unfortunately, I have had no enough time to look for language errors in the man-pages, I am sorry for every language error you will find.

2009-04-28: WPkg is back

This is the first release using wlxdb XML database.
I have not yet updated the manpages, but the biggest part of changes are internal ones only, and the command syntax has not changed.

2008-04-22 - WLXDB

The Warlock Light XML Db (WLXDB) RC1 release will be available soon. As the name says it is an XML database. It is written in C++ and C, and not all features have been developped. But you should find the files to allow you to use it with Tcl/Tk and Perl.

It will need to be tested, and I will be happy to read every comment and suggestion.

Thank you

2007-02-09: wpkg-2.3 is available

The new WPkg version is released. In order to improve the process speed, and to leave free the wpkg-extensions to modify the installing information database, this new branch is based on a C compiled xml engine. The 2.1 branch will be no more developped.

2006-11-12: new branch is under developing for wpkg

The WPkg process is driven by a simple and easy readable text file with tags. But in order to allow extensions to dinamically write new information in the file, its structure has became inadequate.

For this reason a new branch (2.3) is being developped. The old packages will be no more compatible with the new branch WPkg version.

The old branch remains available, as the new one will be based on a full xml file; and recoursive functions will implement searching, indexing, reading and writing functions.... read more
