Re: [eclipse-dev] build name inconsistencies

My cron job scripts consist of many bourne shell scripts. In retrospect, I think I would have
been better off using Perl or even Java. I use lwp-download to download the builds (was installed
on my linux box). The interesting script guessing the build date and time (parsing the download page)
I attached to this mail. Once you have the date and time, it's quite easy to put together the URL of the
build and download with lwp-download.

PS: You'll have to change the URL in the script to point to the public download page.

The build naming funkiness has traditionally broken my scripts as well. I
have a script that downloads and installs builds for me from our local
netware server. I recently got tired of updating the scripts so I changed the
script to be more tolerant (searching for any file with the date and "gtk" or
"motif" in the filename).

We've talked about writing a cron job to grab the latest builds for us, but I
haven't gotten around to it. Would you mind sharing the script that you use?

P.S. On the off chance that it might be useful to someone, I'm attaching my
selfhosting install script.
