Is anyone aware of a source software package available on Unix
(preference Solaris) which attempts something like this:
o audits your $PATH looking for known software packages
o creates a database tracking the packages and their versions
o compares against a database of packages and their current versions
o provides support for downloading new versions.
Think something like CPAN only for non-Perl code .
Thanks for any ideas you might have.
