WEBNEW - Keep track of what's new

I'm glad you are interested in webnew. It is a handy utility to automate your "what's new" listings on the web. If you haven't seen an example listing, check out mine.


The latest version of webnew is 1.3. You can retrieve it from:


To run webnew you will need Perl (version 5.6.0 or later) installed on your system. Once you have it installed, return to this page to continue installing webnew.

Unpack the webnew distribution:

	% gunzip -c webnew-1.3.tar.gz | tar -xvf -

You will probably want to install the files in a place where everyone can access them. Modify DEST in Makefile to point to the top of a standard public hierarchy on your system (e.g. /usr/local). Also make sure that the location of the Perl interpreter is correct.

Then simply run the following sequence of commands:

	% make
	% make install
	% make install.man

Now you are ready to experiment with webnew. Note that some shells need to be told of new commands installed on the path (e.g. on tcsh and csh execute the command rehash).

For usage, please read the manual page.

Comments, enhancements, fixes and other feedback are very welcome.
