chiark system administration utilities

This package contains a number of small administration scripts used by and other systems belonging to the Sinister Greenend Organisation. Currently featuring only:

with-lock-ex: a simple tool for acquiring a lockfile before running another program or script.

summer: a tool for reporting complete details about a filesystem tree in a parseable format, including checksums.

xbatmon-simple: a very simple X client for displaying battery charge status.

watershed: a utility for saving on superfluous executions of an idempotent command. (This is the same utility as shipped separately in Ubuntu's udev, but with slightly different defaults and a different install location.)

rcopy-repeatedly: a utility for repeatedly copying a file from one host to another, to keep a copy constantly up to date.

summer and watershed require the installation of the Recommended crypto libraries; xbatmon-simple needs the Suggested X libraries.

Package version:4.2.0

       with-lock-ex  will open and lock the lockfile for writing and
       then feed the remainder of its  arguments  to  exec(2);  when
       that  process  terminates  the fd will be closed and the file

system `'.

This package, containing the moderately portable sources and Debian
packaging information, and the resulting Debian binary packages, was
put together by Ian, but with assistance from other chiark users.  For
