paccat -- print pacman package files

repo: https://github.com/Morganamilo/paccat
aur: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/paccat/

For a long time I've wanted an easy way to inspect pacman package files, mainly config files. And so paccat was born.

You can inspect a file as simple as

paccat pacman -- pacman.conf

You can even do weird things like

paccat --binary git -- git-add.1.gz | man --local-file -

I wrote this in a a few hours and have just released 0.1.0 so beware. I'll probably be adding a couple things here and there.

Re: paccat -- print pacman package files

Sounds like a nice feature. Do you see a possibility to get this into pacman-contrib?

Re: paccat -- print pacman package files

I'm panning on just pushing it to community as it's own package if there's interest and when I've released version 1.0.

pacman-contrib does not contains any rust code and it's already a mishmash of languages. I don't really want to add another new language to it.
