     15 * use perl. It makes coding so much more efficient, powerful and also fun
    1616 * use AppConfig. A lot of information is managed under a configuration file format and AppConfig makes it trivial to handle them. BTW look at that [http://trac.project-builder.org/browser/devel/pb-doc/AppConfig%3A%3AFile.patch patch] as the versions of AppConfig from 1.63 and up to 1.66 at least have a bug for handling hashes correctly this fixes. Cf: http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=28766

     20As an example of how easy (or not :-) Project-Builder is to use, I decide to write that tutorial as a gift for another project which deserves it, the [www.netperf.org NetPerf] project .

     22You first have to create a .pbrc configuration file in your home directory, which will setup things globally:
     23
     24{{{
     25$ cat > ~/.pbrc << EOF
     26#
     27# Root of the temp file used to store info on the project
     28# Is also used to determine the root directory of the project
     29# No default option allowed here as they need to be all different
     30#
     31pbrc netperf = $ENV{'HOME'}/netperf/src
     32EOF
     33}}}
     34
     35Then get the bits of the project you want to package. It could be using a SVN or CVS access if there is such a thing, or by downloading (at worse) the tar file of the project. Then extract that under a newly created directory that you referenced in your project configuration file:
     36
     37{{{
     38$ cd /tmp
     39$ wget ftp://ftp.netperf.org/netperf/netperf-2.4.4.tar.bz2
     40$ mkdir $HOME/netperf/src
     41$ cd $HOME/netperf/src
     42$ tar xvfj /tmp/netperf-2.4.4.tar.bz2
     43}}}

    2047When the project was mature enough to package correctly mondorescue and itself, I then decided it was time to try it on another unrelated project to see how difficult it could be and document that experience so that others could also begin to use pb for their own project.
