ever wanted to emerge something and wondered what those USE flags do ?

Code:

echo "alias flag="cat /usr/portage/profiles/use.desc|grep " >> ~/.bashrc


the result :
Code:


[ikaro@Genbox:ikaro]$flag sse
sse - fast floating point optimisation for Pentium class chips


I know its pretty simple and maybe many have thought about it before, but i just thought of it today because i needed to know about some USE flags.

A great utility for USE flags is 'euse' which is part of the gentoolkit package. 'euse -i' (-i for Information), followed by the specific USE flags you wish to get information about, shows the description, the flag's status, where the flag is set (make.defaults, make.conf or the environment), and if the flag is of global or local type.[/code]
