Update of bug #30086 (project gnustep):

              Item Group:                     Bug => Change Request         


Follow-up Comment #1:

I don't think this request makes much sense on its own.  The GNUstep defaults
command was a simple early replacement for NeXTstep tools, but the later Apple
defaults command operates quite differently, so if we want Apple compatibility
we need a rewrite.  I guess while maintaining current functionality (a little
of which the Apple command doesn't seem to support), we would need to add
support for:

import, export, and find operations
The different types of domain specification (name, -app ..., -globalDomain,
The different value specifications
  -string <string_value>
  -data <hex_digits>
  -int[eger] <integer_value>
  -float  <floating-point_value>
  -bool[ean] (true | false | yes | no)
  -date <date_rep>
  -array <value1> <value2> ...
  -array-add <value1> <value2> ...
  -dict <key1> <value1> <key2> <value2> ...
  -dict-add <key1> <value1> ...

So I see this as a request for a new tool
