(in re Nick Winter's 'c', from fastcd):
There is an ironclad rule w.r.t. the SSC archive, in that I cannot have two
programs (or packages) with the same name in the archive. However I do not
check that the name of a file was never to be found in the STB, and there
is no way of telling if some user distributed such a file outside (or prior
to) the SSC archive.
The comment I have is: "is there some convention for not using the same
names for programs"
Normally, as Nick well knows, names of 1-3 characters are disparaged (as
are command names that are English words). The latter rule is widely
flouted. There is good reason to allow bending the former in this case
since it makes the command all the easier to use.
The 'c' command does seem to work just fine on *nix (Solaris). It will need
a bit of work to be MacOS-compatible.
