      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.
