Didn't try it but I like that idea because I can remember how much I had
to struggle until I had the first self-compiled (and therefore current)
Gambas installation on a computer.
For instance, I had Gambas running on Raspberry Pi's in my firm but gave
that idea up when the only source of current Gambas Apt packages I knew
went offline. To test the compilation on Raspis was definitely too time
consuming, so I had to carry on with small X86 computers and now I have
some useless Pi's lying around and the X86's consume more electricity. :-(
But: AFAICS the many packages of a distribution the compilation depends
on are not installed by your script, right? To get this done is IMO one
of the biggest hurdles if one compiles and installs Gambas on a computer.
And instead of echoing "hopefully all went well and Gambas3 is now
compiled and installed correctly" it should better test if that's the
I think it would not be bad to provide your script by the Gitlab Gambas
site as soon as it is stable and does it's job well. And then set a link
to it from the wiki and so make it 'official'.
But maybe Benoît or someone else has some good arguments against it.
