If you feel trying out a beta program and letting the developer know any problems

New inxi ready for beta testing
« on: 2018/03/05, 23:59:16 »


I've been working the last few months on the new inxi 3.0.0 release, which is a massive change.

Change one is inxi is moving from Gawk->Bash to Perl 5.x. Tested on Perl 5.08 to current 5.26. Design requirements remain the same: inxi 3.0.0 must run on everything anywhere no matter how old, which for Perl means 5.08 is the oldest realistic Perl release.

For development purposes, inxi 2.9.00 is called pinxi, so that inxi and pinxi can be run next to each other easily on the same system. I refer to bash/gawk inxi as binxi to avoid confusion.

To download and run pinxi

wget -O /usr/local/bin/pinxi
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/pinxi
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.
