Fork me on GitHub

hi all, I'm trying to create a boot task to create a debian binary archive. To do this I'm shelling out to the dpkg-deb command, and one of the arguments is the folder to turn into a deb archive. Ideally, I want to pass a path to the temp directory that would have all the files in the fileset in it. Is there an API to get this from the fileset?


Or should I be copying all the files in the fileset into a temp directory I create and then pointing dpkg-deb at that? :thinking_face:


i would start by making a tempdir and copying to it


ok, will do 👌


works like a charm! thanks @alandipert
