|Description:||GNU flavoured basic commands (1:8.21-102)|
The GNU Core Utilities are the basic file, shell and text manipulation utilities of the GNU operating system. These are the core utilities which are expected to exist on every operating system. Previously these utilities were offered as three individual sets of GNU utilities, fileutils, shellutils, and textutils. Those three have been combined into a single set of utilities called the coreutils. The commands are named with 'g' prefix like 'gls' or 'gcp'. If you want to use them as 'ls' or 'cp', add /sw/lib/coreutils/bin to your PATH or install the coreutils-default package. As the exception, the 'rm' command is named as 'rm.gnu' instead of 'grm' because the cwp-su package has another 'grm'.
The exotic commands like mknod may or may not work in a useful manner on Darwin. Following commands are removed due to their breakage: - su - users - who
