Projects / XStow


XStow is a replacement for GNU Stow written in C++. It supports all features of Stow with some extensions. XStow and GNU Stow are programs for managing the installation of software packages. It keeps each package in its own directory while making it appear that all packages are installed in the same place. Unlike GNU Stow, XStow does not depend on Perl, and can be compiled statically for such uses as rescue disks. XStow is fully compatible with GNU Stow, meaning that you can switch from one to the other at will.
