NAME ^

MDK::Common::System - system-related useful functions

SYNOPSIS ^

    use MDK::Common::System qw(:all);

EXPORTS ^

%compat_arch

architecture compatibility mapping (eg: k6 => i586, k7 => k6 ...)

%printable_chars

7 bit ascii characters

$sizeof_int

sizeof(int)

$bitof_int

$sizeof_int * 8

arch()

return the architecture (eg: i686, ppc, ia64, k7...)

typeFromMagic(FILENAME, LIST)

find the first corresponding magic in FILENAME. eg of LIST:

    [ 'empty', 0, "\0\0\0\0" ],
    [ 'grub', 0, "\xEBG", 0x17d, "stage1 \0" ],
    [ 'lilo', 0x2,  "LILO" ],
    sub { my ($F) = @_;
          #- standard grub has no good magic (Mageia's grub is patched to have "GRUB" at offset 6)
          #- so scanning a range of possible places where grub can have its string
          my ($min, $max, $magic) = (0x176, 0x181, "GRUB \0");
          my $tmp;
          sysseek($F, 0, 0) && sysread($F, $tmp, $max + length($magic)) or return;
          substr($tmp, 0, 2) eq "\xEBH" or return;
          index($tmp, $magic, $min) >= 0 && "grub";
      },

where each entry is [ magic_name, offset, string, offset, string, ... ].

list_passwd()

return the list of users as given by getpwent (see perlfunc)

list_home()

return the list of home (eg: /home/foo, /home/pixel, ...)

list_skels()

return the directories where we can find dot files: homes, /root and /etc/skel

list_users()

return the list of unprivilegied users (aka those whose uid is greater than 500 and who are not "nobody").

syscall_(NAME, PARA)

calls the syscall NAME

psizeof(STRING)

useful to know the length of a pack format string.

    psizeof("I I I C C S") = 4 + 4 + 4 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 16
availableMemory()

size of swap + memory

availableRamMB()

size of RAM as reported by the BIOS (it is a round number that can be displayed or given as "mem=128M" to the kernel)

gettimeofday()

returns the epoch in microseconds

unix2dos(STRING)

takes care of CR/LF translation

whereis_binary(STRING)

return the first absolute file in $PATH (similar to which(1) and whereis(1))

getVarsFromSh(FILENAME)

returns a hash associating shell variables to their value. useful for config files such as /etc/sysconfig files

setVarsInSh(FILENAME, HASH REF)

write file in shell format association a shell variable + value for each key/value

setVarsInSh(FILENAME, HASH REF, LIST)

restrict the fields that will be printed to LIST

setVarsInShMode(FILENAME, INT, HASH REF, LIST)

like setVarsInSh with INT being the chmod value for the config file

addVarsInSh(FILENAME, HASH REF)

like setVarsInSh but keeping the entries in the file

addVarsInSh(FILENAME, HASH REF, LIST)

like setVarsInSh but keeping the entries in the file

addVarsInShMode(FILENAME, INT, HASH REF, LIST)

like addVarsInShMode but keeping the entries in the file

setExportedVarsInCsh(FILENAME, HASH REF, LIST)

same as setExportedVarsInSh for csh format

template2file(FILENAME_IN, FILENAME_OUT, HASH)

read in a template file, replace keys @@@key@@@ with value, save it in out file

template2userfile(PREFIX, FILENAME_IN, FILENAME_OUT, BOOL, HASH)

read in a template file, replace keys @@@key@@@ with value, save it in every homes. If BOOL is true, overwrite existing files. FILENAME_OUT must be a relative filename

read_gnomekderc(FILENAME, STRING)

reads GNOME-like and KDE-like config files (aka windows-like). You must give a category. eg:

    read_gnomekderc("/etc/skels/.kderc", 'KDE')
update_gnomekderc(FILENAME, STRING, HASH)

modifies GNOME-like and KDE-like config files (aka windows-like). If the category doesn't exist, it creates it. eg:

    update_gnomekderc("/etc/skels/.kderc", 'KDE', 
                      kfmIconStyle => "Large")
fuzzy_pidofs(REGEXP)

return the list of process ids matching the regexp

OTHER ^

better_arch(ARCH1, ARCH2)

is ARCH1 compatible with ARCH2?

better_arch('i386', 'ia64') and better_arch('ia64', 'i386') are false

better_arch('k7', 'k6') is true and better_arch('k6', 'k7') is false

compat_arch(STRING)

test the architecture compatibility. eg:

compat_arch('i386') is false on a ia64

compat_arch('k6') is true on a k6 and k7 but false on a i386 and i686
