Ever started 'emerge world' at night only to find out next morning that one of the packages failed to merge and the whole thing stopped ? :)

Here's a basic script to solve that problem. (Sorry if this is already built into portage.. it should be if it's not)

Code:

#!/usr/bin/perl  -w

use strict;

# Non Stop Emerge after a package fails!

# normally emerge stops after a failed package
# and doesn't try to install the rest of the packages
# This script solves that problem by executing 'emerge'
# seperately for each package (if it fails. it only fails for one package)

# probably can't handle things like restart after an update of the 'portage' package

if (scalar @ARGV < 1 ) {
   print "\n\n\tUsage: $0 package1[,package2, package3,..] \n";
   print "\n\t(\"$0 world\" is valid)\n\n";
   exit();
}


my ($command, $emerge, @return);

$emerge = "/usr/bin/emerge";
$command = "$emerge -p @ARGV";
@return = `$command`;

foreach(@return){
   $_ =~ /.*\] (.*\/.*)-\d.*/  ;
   if (defined $1)   {
      print "\n\n Emerging Package: $1 \n\n " ;
      sleep 3;
      system("$emerge $1");
   }
}
