      1 sbase - suckless unix tools
      2 ===========================
      3 
      4 sbase  is a  collection of  unix  tools that  are inherently  portable
      5 across UNIX and UNIX-like systems.
      6 
      7 The following tools are implemented ('*' == finished, '#' == UTF-8 support,
      8 '=' == implicit UTF-8 support):

     89 The  complement of  sbase  is  ubase[1] which  is  Linux-specific  and
     90 provides all  the non-portable tools.   Together they are  intended to
     91 form a base system similar to busybox but much smaller and suckless.
     92 
     93 Building
     94 --------
     95 
     96 You need GNU make to build sbase on OpenBSD.
     97 
     98 To  build sbase,  simply  type  make.  You  may  have  to fiddle  with
     99 config.mk depending on your system.
    100 
    101 You  can  also  build  sbase-box,  which  generates  a  single  binary
    102 containing  all  the  required  tools.    You  can  then  symlink  the
    103 individual tools to sbase-box.
    104 
    105 Ideally you will  want to statically link sbase.  If  you are on Linux
    106 we recommend using musl-libc[2].
    107 
    108 Portability
    109 -----------
    110 
    111 sbase has been  compiled on a variety of  different operating systems,
    112 including Linux, *BSD, OSX, Haiku, Solaris, SCO OpenServer and others.
    113 
    114 Various combinations of operating  systems and architectures have also
    115 been built.
    116 
    117 You can build sbase with gcc, clang, tcc, nwcc and pcc.
