Looking for PAR


I’m looking for the program PAR. It’s a paragraph reformatter: http://www.nicemice.net/par/ or something equivalent.

Can’t find it in the yast repos including packman.

If I need to recompile myself, what do I need to install for doing my own compiles?



YaST > Software > Software Management.
Then, from the View button choose Patterns. Scroll down at left to Development. You will at least need Basic Development, but probably also C/C++ Development.

Since an application already exist for par (an archiving utility), it is called vim-par…

I have it built;
Project: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:malcolmlewis:TESTING/vim-par
Download: https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/malcolmlewis:/TESTING/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/x86_64/vim-par-1.5.2-2.6.x86_64.rpm

The PAR I’m looking for is not a archiving utility. It’s a paragraph reformatter and the website dfor it is: http://www.nicemice.net/par/



Yes, as I said, it is the application your looking for, it’s called vim-par since it clashes with a name already in use… look at the project and the spec file which shows it comes from nicemice.net :wink:

Oops! I did not understand.

Got it. Thanks
