SRC_URI

[ Top ] [ Downloading ] [ Variables ]

DESCRIPTION

Download address(es) for the package source file(s), as a string. The first file in SRC_URI will be considered the primary source file and will determine the default SRC_DIR.

Individual source files maintained locally may also be used by adding their basenames to SRC_URI.

The basename of each URI is treated as the source filename, except that CGI query strings are dropped after downloading. If this would not yield a usable filename, then the file can be renamed by appending an artificial URI fragment in the form of #/FILENAME to the URI. Some examples where this may be useful or even necessary:

This variable is required, but many cygclasses automatically define a default SRC_URI based on the values of PN and PV.

PATCH_URI

[ Top ] [ Downloading ] [ Variables ]

DESCRIPTION

Download address(es) for source patches which are to be applied immediately after unpacking sources, as a string.

Individual source patches maintained locally may also be used by adding their basenames to PATCH_URI. This provides an easy way to carry Cygwin-specific patches forward between releases.

NOTE

See SRC_URI for details about URI handling in cygport.
