Using debtags to get all debian packages which are implemented in C

07.11.2007 at 23:44

Ok for some time i have thought about creating a real world test and regression suite for tinycc. It would be nice if i could use the existing debian infrastructure for this purpose. For obvious reasons i am only interested in packages which are implemented in C, so i searched for a way to filter them out. It seems like debtag could do the trick, the following command returns 1160 packges on an etch system.

debtags grep implemented-in::c | cut -d: -f1

Let's see what i can do with it.
