This is a shell script for those who use linux to play dwarf fortress.
The purpose of this script is to make updating (between minor releases, so 0.XX.YY to 0.XX.ZZ where ZZ = YY+1) easy.

Here are the steps to make this work:
  1. Download the file to the same directory holding the df_linux directory
  2. Call the following commands from a terminal in this directory
    1. mv update_df.txt
    2. chmod +x
    3. . update_df.txt
  3. cd into df_linux and launch the game

Your previous install will now be in a folder titled df_linux_old, untouched. So this should still work as it did before.
The new one should work, although I assume that ToadyOne kept the same format for everything, so if not this may break.
If this is the case, remove the new df_linux, download the new version yourself and do everything manually.

fixed counters so it will increment version numbers correctly (before would never update the number)
fixed directory names I had the wrong directory name
