FS#212 - Add curl to core installed programs

Tags:

I wish for curl to be installed by default on the upcoming pandora FWs, As reported by the angstrom repo, where I install using the command: $sudo su ... #opkg update #opkg install curl curl 7.21.2-r4.0.9 is 78.57 Kilobytes with the dependencies Depends:libcurl4, libgnutls26, libgcrypt11, libgpg-error0, libc6, libz1 I do not know which is installed by default, but I'm sure libc6 is, so I'm going to state the info on the rest of the packages for its memory space usage on the NAND libcurl4(142.99 Kilobytes): Command line tool and library for client-side URL transfers. Depends:libc6, libgnutls26, libz1, libgcrypt11, libgpg-error0, as you can see, it has the same dependencies as above, so it seems both curl and libcurl are probably exclusive from the others, but I will go forward and state the rest of the dependencies libgnutls26 2.8.6-r10.0.5 (291.44 Kilobytes) Depends:libz1, libgcrypt11, libgpg-error0, libc6, (again, it looks like the above depends on this) libgcrypt11 1.4.1-r0.9 (220.35 Kilobytes) Depends: libgpg-error0, libc6, (Oh look, we're not looking at libz1 anymore) libgpg-error0 1.4-r7.1.9 (5.78 Kilobytes) Depends:libc6 now to the lone libz1 libz1 1.2.3-r7.0.9 (41.95 Kilobytes) Depends:libc6 So, in the case we already have the gpg stuff, then the installation is only 221.56KB, however, with the zlib and the gpg included, the total comes to 781.08KB So, now that the cost is out of the way, What are the goods and bads? Good: Its a very versatile CLI program to get and send information over http through the network, and is tolerant of network issues It doesn't take too much space relative to things that have been pulled out, like abiword. The libcurl is a very good library, and could be of great benefit to some future projects. Bad: Well, we already have wget, which is not as configurable, and wget hates Craig's appstore Here's the link to curl on the repo http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/repo/?pkgname=curl
