McStas perl tools for McStas 2.1

Found a bug in the old archive - the pkg-descr was wrong.
Comment 2 Rodrigo Osorio freebsd_committer 2015-02-23 23:23:09 UTC

Comment 3 Erik B Knudsen 2015-02-24 00:38:12 UTC

p5-mcstas-tools port reworked
Comment 6 Rodrigo Osorio freebsd_committer 2015-03-09 23:42:02 UTC

I found several flaws in your port ans try to fix it in the
most elegant way. The port is not ready enough and extra
work is required.
For now :
- I fix the port name to fulfill the naming style
- I fix distfile management (fetch and extract)
- I fix dependencies (for now I remove PDL, a really annoying one
  we will see in the future is PDL is really required or not)

- After install we have broken symlinks (patch needed)
- Test the port with real data

Feel free to ask questions if you have, we are here to work together.

(In reply to Rodrigo Osorio from comment #6)

Thank you very much for editing and pointing out some deficiencies - my expressed aim is to make it as "standard" as possible. For sure I have made some beginners mistakes. 

Regarding PDL. It is indeed needed. If not some of the tools included in this port will not work. It is annoying, agreed. but unfortunately still necessary.

I notice you have moved some tar-logic from post-fetch to do-extract and rewritten it.I see that it is an extraction step and so logically should be in the extract section, is there some  practical reason to have it there as opposed to the way it was before. I am probably missing something simple here.

Otherwise I will go ahead and do some more work and testing on the port so that it gets up to par.

Again thanks for the edits and comments

Hi, sorry for the delay.

In fact I rewrote the fetch extract process cause it was done the wrong way.
We don't use to perform files manipulation in the DISTFILE dir ; we have the word dir, so use it.
I also can argue that some variables were misused, making the makefile too complex.
My last comment is: don't add comments on Makefiles, most of the time
the code is auto-descriptive.

Feel free to contact me if you need a review

This PR is opened for a long time, let me know if you need time or any help porting the tool.

I'll need a bit more time - I've been away on leave for a while and so could not work on this.

New reworked version incl upgrade to mcstas 2.2a

New version following advice by R. Osorio.

The Makefile has been simplified.

pkg-install moved to files/ to allow portversion to be inherited, as McStas by default installs to PREFIX/mcstas/VERSION/...

The McStas team have been persuaded to not bundle everything in a single tarball
avoiding involved unpacking.

Furthermore - now tracking the latest version of McStas - 2.2a
Comment 12 Rodrigo Osorio freebsd_committer 2015-11-12 00:10:52 UTC
last version looks fine, I still testing.
