6.3. Package lists

It is possible to assign several packages at once in command line for the build.

        any do id zlib-1.2.11,bzip2-1.0.6
They are given as the second argument of command any do, delimited with comma without spaces. Two packages will be built at the single session in the example above.

The command to build the list of packages:

        any do id pack.src
In the example above the build goes for packages from the file ports/list/pack.src.

Lists support nesting: they may contain another lists.

        cat big-list.src


Lists may be united in command string as well:

        any do id pack.src,more.src

The recommended convention on file names: permanent lists end with .src, temporary or generated ones end with other extensions (for example, .txt).
