What is list2pkg ?

List2pkg is a program to create Slackware packages in a simple way. More precisely, given a list of files, it will create a slackware package containing these files. A user trying to install that package will see the same files installed at the same locations they were on your system.

List2pkg is especially useful if you have installed a program from source and, knowing where all its files are, you want to create a slackware package to ease another installation.

List2pkg was originally created to create Slackware package using urpkg .

List2pkg is public-domain software, written in Perl.
