    makeworld?


    I just came across a program named makeworld on my Arch machine. After looking around Google, I couldn't find anything; anyone here know what it does?

    Thanks!

    Perhaps it is a cousin of the "makeworld" in Gentoo. And it rebuilds all your system.

    Hi.

    I got about 500 hits from makeworld arch, for example:
    You can easily compile all your updates from source using 'makepkg' or 'makeworld'.
    ... cheers, drl

    Does that mean it does the same thing as makepkg? If not, what does it do instead?
