MyQ Gadgets 0.0.6 released

Submitted by jay on January 16, 2008 - 12:19pm

Thanks to those who tried it out and left feedback, much appreciated.

  • Changed /usr/local/bin/perl to /usr/bin/env perl to make the open source crowd happy.  Make sure the proper perl directory is first in your $PATH    
  • Made the usage string contain the valid modes in myq_status
  • Added check for mysql binary in
  • Quoted the --password option in to handle passwords with strange characters in them.
  • Setup default options string to be clearer which options are available to the scripts (like -? and -d)
  • Bumped the minimum repeat time for myq_status down to 1 second.  Note that it still might take more than 1 second for the check to run.

As compared with my original

As compared with my original users of this product:  internal Yahoo users who were just fine with /usr/local/bin/perl.
