nbase - NetBSD userlevel portable to other UNIX-like systems


nbase is a collection of NetBSD tools portable to Linux, macOS and other UNIX-like systems. Its version looks like x.y.z.n, where x is a NetBSD major version, y -- NetBSD minor version, z -- NetBSD patch level, and n -- nbase release number. For example, means fourth release of nbase that corresponds to NetBSD 7.0-RELEASE.

Additional documentation is under doc/ subdirectory.
