Now in 2001, times have changed with fancy package management systems being common on Linux distributions. This makes binstats much less needed. But the hurdle of creating binary packages suffices that people still compile stuff from tar balls of source code - I know I do. Of course, with the ravages of time, after many compilations and installations your system gets into a rather untidy state: forgotten binaries that once used libc5 populated /usr/local/bin; multiple versions of dynamically linked libraries lie forlorn; various man pages are scattered across your file hierarchy. All because you were enjoying the vicarious pleasure of trying the latest and greatest version of rapidly changing open sources. Thus binstats is a last resort to restore order to the chaos that this ad-hoc approach to software installation brings.
Go on, try it. You know you want to: it's the latest version...
This latest release fixes some bugs and adds some features that include OMAGIC and ECOFF support and man page checking.
You can get binstats-1.08 (12436 bytes) here or version 1.07 at metalab (was sunsite) (after it has been moved from Incoming). The old versions are still available: binstats-0.91 (3665 bytes), binstats-0.93 (4451 bytes), binstats-0.95 (8172 bytes), binstats-0.96 (9505 bytes), binstats-1.00 (10437 bytes), binstats-1.01 (10544 bytes), binstats-1.03 (11808 bytes), binstats-1.04 (11881 bytes), binstats-1.05 (11963 bytes), binstats-1.06 (12303 bytes) and binstats-1.07 (12340 bytes).
