     1 ubase - suckless linux base utils
     2 =================================
     3 
     4 ubase is  a collection of  tools similar  in spirit to  util-linux but
     5 much simpler.
     6 
     7 The complement  of ubase  is sbase[1] which  mostly follows  POSIX and
     8 provides all the portable tools.  Together they are intended to form a
     9 base system similar to busybox but much smaller and suckless.
    10 
    11 Building
    12 --------
    13 
    14 To  build ubase,  simply  type  make.  You  may  have  to fiddle  with
    15 config.mk and config.h depending on your system.
    16 
    17 You  can  also  build  ubase-box,  which  generates  a  single  binary
    18 containing  all  the  required  tools.    You  can  then  symlink  the
    19 individual tools to ubase-box or run: make ubase-box-install.
    20 
    21 To run the tools for ubase-box directly use: ubase-box cmd [args]
    22 
    23 Ideally you will  want to statically link ubase.   We highly recommend
    24 using musl-libc[2].
    25 
    26 ubase is known to compile with gcc, clang and tcc.
