'''hbcxmlgen''' is a Bash script for creating the Homebrew Channel's meta.xml files.
Along with just making the meta.xml file, it also
* can be installed to <code>/usr/bin</code> so you can run it from anywhere just by typing <code>hbcxmlgen</code>
* checks if meta.xml already exists in the current directory, and asks if you want to overwrite it
* notifies you if you need write permissions to write in the current directory ''before'' you enter all the meta.xml information
Also, a bug: You must run install.sh from the directory that hbcxmlgen.sh is in. Otherwise:
mcpancakes@desktop:/$ /usbhdd/Programming/hbcxmlgen/install.sh -iCopying to /usr/bin/hbcxmlgen ...
[sudo] password for mcpancakes:
cp: cannot stat `hbcxmlgen.sh': No such file or directory

hbcxmlgen is a bash script for assisting in the creation of the Homebrew Channel's
"meta.xml" files. If you run the installer, you get easy access to it no matter what
your current working directory may be.
If not installed:
$ [dir of script]/hbcxmlgen.sh
== Changelog ==
tm31tuimhny r2] - fixed issue of the wrongly always-appearing "Write privileges required" message when there was no meta.xml already in the directory. Sorry to the 11 who already downloaded it :\ . When write privileges are required, running with <code>sudo</code> breaks the conditional statements for some odd reason (this existed in r1 as well). <code>su</code> works though, but just remember to <code>exit</code> when you're done making the meta.xml file. (released ~8 hours after r1).<br>
[http://www.mediafire.com/?zyzdmxd1ztk r1] - initial release.
== Note ==
[[HBCXMLGen]] is [[User:Pinecone|Pinecone's]] Java-based program that serves the same purpose as hbcxmlgen.
Pinecone: If you want me to change the name, just say so. It was yours first, after all ;)
