Description:
execline is a very light non-interactive scripting language, which is similar to /bin/sh. Simple shell scripts can be easily rewritten in the execline language, improving performance and memory usage. execline was designed for use in embedded systems, but works on most Unix flavors. execline features conditional loops, getopt-style option handling, filename globbing, and more. Meanwhile, its syntax is far more logical and predictable than the shell's syntax, and has no security issues.

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles

It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.

Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.

There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.

Add execline 1.05:

execline is a very light non-interactive scripting language,
which is similar to /bin/sh. Simple shell scripts can be
easily rewritten in the execline language, improving performance
and memory usage. execline was designed for use
in embedded systems, but works on most Unix flavors.

execline features conditional loops, getopt-style option handling,
filename globbing, and more.  Meanwhile, its syntax
is far more logical and predictable than the shell's syntax,
and has no security issues.
