Linuxbrew is a fork of Homebrew, the Mac OS package manager, for Linux.
It can be installed in your home directory and does not require root
access. The same package manager can be used on both your Linux server
and your Mac laptop. Installing a modern version of glibc and gcc in
your home directory on an old distribution of Linux takes five minutes.
* Can install software to a home directory and so does not require sudo
* Install software not packaged by the native distribution
* Install up-to-date versions of software when the native distribution is old
* Use the same package manager to manage both your Mac and Linux machines
This package provides Linuxbrew install scripts instead of linuxbrew itself.
