Software Area

The following software is available here. There is not much documentation around since all packages come with their manpages. And since I always try to make them cover all aspects of the programs (they are the primary source of documentation) there's simply not much sense in writing another document explaining it all again.

Some of the programs below are usual C code programs and some are shell scripts, but notice that the term "shell script" means that it's an akanga shell script.

akanga is an rc based shell interpreter. Nice and powerful for shell programming and comes with some helpful sample script programs.

ftp.server - FTP file server

ftpc - command line FTP client
ftpc is an FTP client for shell scripts (or similiar), it logs on to a server, performs the given command and disconnects. There's also ftps, an akanga shell scripts that implements a simple FTP client for interactive shell use. Manpages are here: ftpc(1), ftps(1). The current version is 1.0.7: ftpc-1.0.7.tar.gz.

mspd - message send protocol daemon
The mspd package implements a client and server for the message send protocol (MSP) as described in RFC 1312. An old protocol but useful if you want to get simple messages across a network. No documentation but manpages: mspd(1), send(1). The current version is 1.0.2: mspd-1.0.2.tar.gz.

pm - process monitor
pm is basically a simple process monitor written in akanga. Over the time it has grown into a modular system monitor program. There is no documentation here but the package has it's manpages: pm(1), pmd(1). The package contains also some sample monitor module scripts. The current version is 1.0.8: pm-1.0.8.tar.gz.

TCP/IP Proxies
