Navig 2.0, or Apollia's Navigation Command Prompt v2.0 for GNU/Linux

Site Update
Software Release

Here's another new version of my "Navig" Perl script, also known as "Apollia's Navigation Command Prompt for GNU/Linux".

Finally, Navig has colorized text as a result of some Bash libraries I wrote while trying to update my Puppy Linux Setup Kit, primarily the library I call the Fashionizer.

The config settings, the shortcuts list, and the fashion settings (which you can customize to use whatever colors and styles you want) are now all in their own separate files.

Navig uses its own copies of my Bash libraries, rather than depending on the ones that my Puppy Linux Setup Kit will someday install for its own use.

If I had the time, I'd probably like to make a native Perl version of the Fashionizer to use with Navig, since it might be a little faster. But, at least it's neat that it's possible to use my Bash libraries with my Perl software.


Navig still doesn't yet interact with my not-yet-done-enough system for splicing together path fragments and making it easy to refer to locations by a simple nickname like "My Music Disk", instead of a specific path which can vary depending on what OS you're using, or even what order you plugged in your disks.

My next goal for Navig is to make it use that system, though I also want Navig to still be able to use old-style shortcuts which refer to an actual path instead of a location's nickname.
