Projects / twapake


Twapake is a system administration utility for Slackware and Slackware-based operating systems only, making it easier to manage last installed packages and see the installation date of a package. It can print a simple list of N packages sorted by installed date to STDOUT. It can print a snapshot logfile to the /var/log/twapake/ directory. A snapshot is a list of all packages sorted by installed date at T time. The installed date is printed too, making it easier to see when a package has been installed on your system. You can remove the last N installed packages, print the packages installed since a chosen date, and launch a Curses User Interface for easy removal.
