shell tarball relative to mobile upload port

Previous uploaded shar file was empty. I apologize for the inconvenience. I hope this one fills the FreeBSD ports project goal.

Hi Franck,

Unfortunately, the port is not nearly complete. For instance, it does not fetch (make fetch fails). Please, have a look at


there is pretty good information there.

Also try to test the port first, and run portlint -AC (https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/porters-handbook/book.html#porting-portlint) before submitting. It does a good job catching common errors.

First ports are the hardest :-)

Increments version and strip the 'b' in 0.6b

The trailling 'b' in "0.6b" transformed in '0.6.b' while fetching the source tarball. Hope this one is correct.

Hi there, Franck!

Would you mind explaining what problem this software tries to solve?

Comment 6 Franck Lesage 2020-06-23 10:56:26 UTC
This software let you transfer files from your mobile to your computer. If both are wirelessly connected to a lan the user afford a transfert without wire.

More explanation are here:

The problem I meet with linux and *BSD is that they don't support all the hardware.

The software that is on this page has been written in order to get out large file from a mobile without USB plug. It states with a mobile connected to a box that is connected to a PC both in wifi.

And here:

It's for me the cheaper solution in cost of time/money.
