Not sure how easy it is to implement and how useful it'll be since all it avoids is a one-time setup, but as I was extracting a couple of other KoboRoot.tgz files to add the hyphen dictionaries to the files section I thought “would be nice if there was a merge section where I could just list these and they would get unpacked and processed by the tool…”

Thanks again for simplifying the patch carryover from version to version!

@dmapr: I raised the same question a while ago, and the conclusion (on both ends ) was that it was a job best left to a wrapper script.

And, indeed, I did just that, and learned in the process that GNU tar has a concatenate option that does just what we need .

Thanks a lot!
A really useful wrapper. I don't knew about the concatenate option.

I guess this is stuff for developers? I don't understand anything. If this could be useful information for novice's as well, I am interested to learn more about it in a practical way.

The purpose of the last part of script is to create a last updated install file with Kfmon.
Good luck.

Which basically boils down to GNU tar's concatenate feature (ie., -A), with the caveat that it only works on uncompressed tarballs, hence the manual g(un)zipping.
