This announces the "release" of a new version of Olin's net package.
I have (at least temporarily) taken over maintenance of the package.
This release runs under scsh 0.4.4 (as opposed to 1.0beta).
The main changes and additions are to the HTTP server which I intend
to make into a full-blown realistic piece of software as far as time
- numerous bug fixes
- better configurability
- directory index serving
- HTML literal text output in htmlout
- on-the-fly gateway for GNU info pages
- rudimentary access control
The package is located at
... and also at
(We use the SU Net server to provide on-the-fly documentation for our
software installation. You can sample it at
If you know how to do something like this easily with any other web
server, let me know. :-})
I hope that the SU guys will transfer it to the scsh contrib directory
Please direct any suggestions, fixes, complaints etc. to me or the
scsh newsgroup/mailing list. I expect some problems as this is the
first release I'm putting up.
Cheers =8-} Mike
