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;
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
Oops! I did not understand.
Got it. Thanks
