Latest BaCon in devx

As we are embracing BaCon as one of our standard compilers in Puppy, I have added a feature in the Woof build system to install the very latest version of BaCon.

The '3builddistro' script checks that the 'devx' SFS is loaded, if so, offers to download the latest BaCon files and place them in the 'devx' SFS. They will be found in /usr/share/BaCon.

The beta release of bacon.bac is downloaded and compiled.

This removes the need to update a BaCon PET file. Every time that you build a Puppy with Woof, you will automatically have the latest BaCon, including all .bac files and documentation. As BaCon is continually being improved, this is very convenient.

quirky retro
Sorry, completely off topic, but I just wondered where did quirky retro go? I rather liked it. Unlike any other distro in the universe it was able to reliably sleep and wake my ThinkPad in live sessions. I think it was. Later versions of Quirky don't seem to do this. Qret120 I think it was, with added Firefox goodness.

Absolutely no idea what BaCon is all about but the announcement that Opera 11 has gone gold contains a reference to BaCon. 6.7m downloads in a day. Must be saying something.

BaCon install

I was building a puplet and was not worried about the full dev so answered no to download BaCon and there was a error line 1813 command not found and it still download and installed the BaCon files.
