Subject [buildbot] What tools are available to shell scripts?
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2012 10:59:22 GMT
I'm trying to fix the script that creates the JMeter nightly builds listing.

Turns out that Ubuntu (I assume the script runs on the master) and
FreeBSD don't agree on what options ls(1) uses to specify the date
format.
[Seems unlikely that using find(1) -ls would be any better in this regard]

I've tried using my Ubuntu VM and that does not even seem to agree
with the results from buildbot either.

Rather than keep tweaking the shell script to fit the specific local
dialect of commands such as ls(1), is there a generic scripting
language such as Perl that is guaranteed to be available on buildbot?

I could then test the script on Minotaur (and my Ubuntu VM) and have
some hope of it working (and being easier to maintain) on buildbot.
