Short: Gopher Daemon Author: Sean MacLennan Uploader: Diego Casorran Type: comm/tcp Version: 0.27 Requires: ixemul.library Architecture: m68k-amigaos WHAT IS THIS? ------------- Gofish is my attempt to boost the performance of the current gopherds. However, I do have some design goals. I am running GoFish on my 'Winder . While it is a great machine, it is not the most powerful machine in the world. Design Goals ------------ 1) Secure. I do not plan on letting the server run executables. 2) Fast. At least as fast as a web server. I am using thttpd as my benchmark. 3) Low resource usage. Single process. 4) Simple. The daemon will only serve files. Directory listings will be read from the .cache files verbatim. I think this is an important decision. It gives maximum flexibility to the users. They can go from the exteme of writing all the cache files by hand, to having some form of custom, fully automated file insertion program. I plan on providing one such program called `mkcache', but it will not be required. WHERE CAN I GET IT? ------------------- GoFish is hosted on SourceForge. Go to the project page and follow the instructions. CURRENT ASSUMPTIONS ------------------- I am currently using the Linux mmap(2) call to write out the files. Because of this, I do not process the files. The following assumption must hold: Files must not have any lines containing only a ".". There is a script called check-files that will verify that the above is true. If you have changed the GOPHER_ROOT, you must change it in the check-files script also. LOG ROTATION ------------ GoFish supports log rotation. Move the log to a new name. Then send a USR1 signal to GoFish. It will close the old log and create a new file. No log entries will be lost. After the signal, the old log should be up to date. Example: (note that kill line uses backwards ticks, not single quotes) mv /var/log/gopherd.log /var/log/gopherd.log.1 kill -USR1 `cat /var/run/gopherd.pid` `````````````````````````` `````````````````````````` Latest update of this package can be found at http://amiga.sourceforge.net/ `````````````````````````` `````````````````````````` ArchiveContents LhA Freeware Version 2.2 Copyright 1991-94 by Stefan Boberg.
