The W3C Command Line Tool is a cross platform command line tool for
accessing the Web. It is developed in C and serves as an example of a
client application using the W3C Reference Library and as a test-tool
for quick access to the Web from scripts, cron jobs etc. It gives a
variety of possibilities for data format conversion, filtering etc. It
is primarily intended as a test-tool for quick access to the Web or
used in scripts, cron jobs etc.

For more information on the application, please look at the page

1995-12-05T02:48:19+00:00 graphics/png Library for manipulating PNG images
Libpng was written as a companion to the PNG specification, as a
way to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to support
the PNG file format in application programs. Most users will not
have to modify the library significantly; advanced users may want
to modify it more. The library was coded for both users. All
attempts were made to make it as complete as possible, while
keeping the code easy to understand. Currently, this library
only supports C. Support for other languages is being considered.

Arena's primary purpose is to be a testbed for new features of the
web. In the past, we have implemented HTML3 features including tables
and math. Currently, style sheets are in focus along with new graphics
formats such as PNG. Also, Arena is a testing tool for the W3C
Reference Library. The library provides a common platform which
will ensure future compatibility on the web. If you are a
browser vendor, it will save you time.

1995-11-26T12:47:06+00:00 audio/workman Open Look-based CD player tool
[ From the WorkMan README ]

WorkMan is a graphical tool for playing audio compact discs on a CD-ROM
drive. It has most of the features available on standalone CD players,
such as a shuffle mode, programmable playlists, and elapsed/remaining
timers. But it also has extra features, foremost of which is the ability
to store information about CDs in a database, then automatically extract
that information when the CD is inserted later. WorkMan stores the
artist's name, the disc title, the names of individual tracks, and even
remembers which tracks you don't want to hear! All in an easy-to-use,
attractive OPEN LOOK graphical interface.

1995-11-17T19:03:48+00:00 misc/buffer Buffer sporadic I/O for faster tape and pipe throughput
This is a program designed initially to speed up writing tapes on remote
tape drives, but may be used as a general pipe buffering utility.
Note: You must have SYSVSHM support in FreeBSD kernel.

The program splits itself into two processes. The first process reads
(and reblocks) from stdin into a shared memory buffer. The second
writes from the shared memory buffer to stdout. Doing it this way
means that the writing side effectly sits in a tight write loop and
doesn't have to wait for input. Similarly for the input side. It is
this waiting that slows down other reblocking processes, like dd.

1995-10-12T07:43:01+00:00 net/rmsg Network messaging system
The rmsg messaging system can be used to send write(1)-like messages to
logged-on users. The system can cross machine boundaries: if another machine
has rmsgd running, you can send messages to users on it.
The system allows bitnet virtual machine-like 'virtual users' to whom
any user can send messages and they can answer the messages. The rmsgd server
makes this possible by allowing a command 'exec' in a user's .msgconf file, and
whenever the user receives a message this command is executed and the message is
piped to it.
It is possible to log incoming and outgoing messages. You can specify a
file to which the last (or every) incoming message will be stored.
Rmsgd is the server daemon for the system. It should be started by
root, but for now it works even if started by ordinary users, even though some
capabilities are disabled for security reasons (that is, exec and logging of
incoming messages, since that would be done by the user-id who started rmsgd and
not the receiver).
The server should be named 'rmsgd' to have it start as a daemon. Rmsg
is the client end of the system. Rmsg is used by ordinary users to send
messages. For example, rmsg foo@bar hello there ! ^D would send a message
'hello there !' to user foo at machine bar. By default, rmsg stores the last
outgoing message in the user's home directory in the file .msgout. Then msg -r
user@machine can be used to resend the message. Messages are normally read from
standard input until EOF.
There are many options which can be set in a user's ~/.msgconf' file.
Read the manual page for rmsg for more information.

COPYRIGHT ISSUES:

This version of 'libident' is hereby released into the
Public Domain. It may be distributed for a fee or without
a fee. We only ask you not to pretend you wrote it.

If you make any changes, please send sources or a diff of it to
us (pen@lysator.liu.se or pell@lysator.liu.se), so we can keep
_one_ unified version of libident available...

COMMENTS:

This is the second stab at a small library to interface to the Ident
protocol server. Maybe this will work correctly on some machines.. :-)

The ident-tester.c file is a small daemon (to be started from Inetd)
that does an ident lookup on you if you telnet into it. Can be used
to verify that your Ident server is working correctly.

I'm currently running this "ident-tester" on port 114 at lysator.liu.se
(130.236.254.1) if you wish to test your server.

1995-10-07T01:19:27+00:00 security/ssh2 Secure shell client and server for V.2 SSH protocol
SSH Protocols and Secure Shell

Secure Shell is the secure login program that revolutionized remote
management of networks hosts over the Internet. It is a powerful,
very easy-to-use program that uses strong cryptography for protecting
all transmitted confidential data, including passwords, binary files,
and administrative commands.

The benefits of SSH include:

o Automatic authentication of users, no passwords sent in cleartext to
prevent the stealing of passwords.
o Multiple strong authentication methods that prevent such security
threats as spoofing identity.
o Authentication of both ends of connection, the server and the client
are authenticated to prevent identity spoofing, trojan horses, etc.
o Automatic authentication using agents to enable strong
authentication to multiple systems with a single-sign-on.
o Encryption and compression of data for security and speed.
o Secure file transfer.
o Tunneling and encryption of arbitrary connections.

WWW: http://www.ssh.com/
1995-10-07T01:19:27+00:00 security/ssh Secure shell client and server (remote login program)
Secure Shell is a program to log into another computer over a network,
to execute commands in a remote machine, and to move files from one
machine to another. It provides strong authentication and secure
communications over insecure channels. It is intended as a replacement
for rlogin, rsh, and rcp.
1995-10-04T17:29:14+00:00 sysutils/afio Archiver and backup program with builtin compression
Afio makes cpio-format archives. It deals somewhat gracefully with input data
corruption, supports multi-volume archives during interactive operation, and

from introduction/about.txt:

Eiffel is a systematic approach to the construction of quality software,
including a language, a method, libraries, and development environments.

The language was designed in 1985 by Bertrand Meyer of ISE. The current
language version is Eiffel 3, described in detail in Meyer's book "Eiffel:
The Language" (Prentice Hall, 1992). Many other books are available on the
language and the method. The language is non-proprietary.

More docs are in ``${PREFIX}/eiffel/doc'' and ``${PREFIX}/eiffel/introduction''
Some examples are in ``${PREFIX}/eiffel/examples''.

from main.c:

very simple and crude simulator for the 6811

some instructions aren't there yet (notably converning multiplication
and interrupts) and the interface only allows stepping. this should
be easily rectifiable, however, and the simple structure should make
grafting on a graphical interface quite simple.

I am calling this version 1.6, to reflect the revision number of
sim.h, which appears to be common to all (three) source files.

XF-Mail is X-Windows application for receiving electronic mail. It was
created using XForms library toolkit by T.C. Zhao and Mark Overmars.

It's partially compatible with MH style mail boxes but it does not
require any MH tools to be installed on the system. You can read most
of your MH folders and messages with XF-Mail.

XF-Mail has very friendly user interface and it's extremely easy in
use. It implements most of the mail functionality in one program and
it does not require any additional tools.

built-in browser enables you to navigate through C functions, C++ classes,
methods and files. A SMall Ansi C Interpreter (Smac) is also built-in to
dynamically extend the editor's possibilities (user functions, key
bindings, modes etc). Xcoral provides variable width fonts, menus,
scrollbars, buttons, search, regions, kill-buffers, macros and undo. An
on-line manual box, with a table of contents and an index, helps you to
use and customize the editor. Commands are accessible from menus or key
bindings. Xcoral is a direct Xlib client and runs on color/bw X Display.

The example .xcoralrc is in ${PREFIX}/share/xcoral/xcoralrc.fl; cp it
to ~/.xcoralrc, and fire up xcoral.

1995-08-28T14:50:52+00:00 graphics/aero
AERO is a simulation program based on rigid body systems. With the
built-in 3D editor you can create a virtual scene consisting of
spheres, boxes (cuboids), cylinders and plains. These objects may be
connected with links like spring, damper, rod and joint.

Now the simulation can be started and all objects obey to the laws of
physics. That means gravitation, air resistance, friction and all
additonal user defined forces are taken into account and set the scene
into motion. You can watch this sequence similar to watching a video
tape: play the scene or step back to memory positions and replay or
you can "wind" back to the beginning or forward to the end of the
scene.

In addition AERO is capable of creating scene files for the raytracing
program POV-Ray out of these sequences. This means you can create
fully rendered animation sequences, e.g. MPEG videos.

Chipmunk CAD (Oct 1998 Revision)
-------- --- --- ---- --------

This directory contains a revised public beta-test version of the
Caltech electronic CAD distribution. This distribution contains tools
for schematic capture, netlist creation, and analog and digital
simulation (log), IC mask layout, extraction, and DRC (wol), simple
chip compilation (wolcomp), MOSIS fabrication request generation
(mosis), netlist comparison (netcmp), data plotting (view) and
postscript graphics editing (until). These tools were used exclusively
for the design and test of all the integrated circuits described in
Carver Mead's book "Analog VLSI and Neural Systems". Until was used
as the primary tool for figure creation for the book. The directory
also contains an example of an analog VLSI chip that was designed and
fabricated with these tools, and an example of an Actel
field-programmable gate array design that was simulated and converted
to Actel format with these tools (example).

These tools were originally written for HP 200 Series ("Chipmunk")
computers, and were later ported to Unix and the X Windows System.

1995-08-19T13:51:40+00:00 net/rdist6 Network file distribution/synchronisation utility
This is version 6.1 of Rdist from USC. It is based on rdist from
4.3BSD (classic). It includes all fixes for all bugs known to the
CSRG Berkeley folks. It has been running at USC and numerous other
sites for some time now on a wide variety of platforms.

This version of rdist is not directly compatible with rdist
distributed with 4.3BSD and subsequent vendor releases, but does
indirectly provide full backward compatibility.

This version of rdist does not need to be setuid "root" at all. Rdist
now uses the rsh(1c) [remote command] program to make connections to
remote hosts, instead of making the connection directly. This
eliminates the need to be run as "root". Many thanks to Chris
Siebenmann <cks@utcc.utoronto.ca> and John DiMarco
<jdd@cdf.toronto.edu> who came up with an rsh version of rcmd() that
makes this possible.

1995-08-14T04:08:02+00:00 x11/9term An X11 program which emulates a plan9 window
9term is a terminal emulator which emulates an 8 1/2 window.
this version supports unicode. To see this support, cat one of
the utf files in an 8 1/2 window. Your Xserver must be able to
find the required fonts, and the `*p9font' x-resource must be
set to point to the fonts, maybe `/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Xg/unicode.9.font'.

This port needs work, it is functional enough to get the feel
for 9term, but some of the features don't work with FreeBSD.

1995-08-14T04:08:02+00:00 x11-wm/9wm An 8 1/2-like Window Manager for X
9wm Version 1.1
Copyright 1994 David Hogan.

What is 9wm?
============

9wm is an X window manager which attempts to emulate the Plan 9 window
manager 8-1/2 as far as possible within the constraints imposed by X.
It provides a simple yet comfortable user interface, without garish
decorations or title-bars. Or icons. And it's click-to-type. This
will not appeal to everybody, but if you're not put off yet then read
on. (And don't knock it until you've tried it).

One major difference between 9wm and 8-1/2 is that the latter provides
windows of text with a typescript interface, and doesn't need to run a
separate program to emulate a terminal. 9wm, as an X window manager,
does require a separate program. For better 8-1/2 emulation, you should
obtain Matthew Farrow's "9term" program (ftp://ftp.cs.su.oz.au/matty/unicode),
version 1.6 or later (earlier versions don't cooperate with 9wm in
implementing "hold mode"). Of course, you can run xterm under 9wm as well.

Unicode fonts
=============

The new libXg distribution supports Unicode. Sam and 9term built using
the new UTF libXg will allow one to enter and edit files containing
Unicode characters encoded using UTF-2 (UTF-FSS).
To use them:

o convert the bdf files to whatever format is appropriate for
your system and place the files in a suitable common directory
o set this directory up as an X font directory by running some
program such as `mkfontdir' if necessary
o add the directory to your fontpath `xset fp+ fontdir'
o make sure libXg knows about the fontfile you wish to use by
setting the appropriate .p9font X resource (or just *p9font) to
be something like /lib/font/Xg/matty/unicode.9.font or by
specifying an appropriate -p9font argument to libXg programs.
1995-08-14T04:08:02+00:00 shells/rc Unix incarnation of the plan9 shell
This is a reimplementation for Unix, by Byron Rakitzis, of the Plan 9 shell.
The original rc was designed and implemented by Tom Duff at Bell Labs. It has
a small feature set similar to a traditional Bourne shell, but with a much
cleaner and simpler syntax. Among other things, this makes rc much better than
Bourne-compatible shells at handling filenames which contain spaces. Thus,
writing rc scripts is less error-prone than writing sh scripts.

WWW: http://tobold.org/article/rc
1995-08-14T04:08:02+00:00 shells/es Extensible shell, derived from plan9's rc
Es is an extensible shell. The language was derived from the Plan 9
shell, rc, and was influenced by functional programming languages,
such as Scheme, and the Tcl embeddable programming language. This
implementation is derived from Byron Rakitzis's public domain
implementation of rc.

Es is in the public domain. We hold no copyrights or patents on
the source code, and do not place any restrictions on its distribution.
We would appreciate it if any distributions do credit the authors.

1995-08-14T04:08:02+00:00 editors/sam A unix version of Rob Pike's editor for plan9
This is an X11 version of Rob Pike's editor, sam. Documentation describing
its use and construction are provided in subdirectory doc. The file doc/sam.1
contains the manual page; doc/sam.tut.ms is a tutorial that can be
formatted with troff -ms. It substitutes Bold and Italics for the
fonts named CW and CS; if your system has these fonts, remove the
CW and CS macros at the beginning of the file. The files doc/sam.ps
and doc/se.ps are postscript versions of published papers describing
sam and structural regular expressions. These papers reflect sam's
capabilities at the time of publication several years ago; while the
general description remains accurate, some functions may have changed
or been removed. Other files in the doc directory contain manual pages
for the library packages used by sam.

Sam is composed of two programs: sam itself, which does the command processing
and file manipulation; and samterm, which controls the display and
interacts with the user. You can run sam on one machine and samterm on another
connected via remote execution.

1995-08-08T08:58:46+00:00 devel/noweb Simple, extensible literate-programming tool
INTRODUCTION --- WHAT IS NOWEB, ANYWAY?

noweb is a literate-programming tool like FunnelWEB or nuweb, only
simpler. A noweb file contains program source code interleaved with
documentation. When noweb is invoked, it writes the program source
code to the output files mentioned in the noweb file, and it writes
a TeX file for typeset documentation.

noweb is designed to meet the needs of literate programmers while
remaining as simple as possible. Its primary advantages are
simplicity, extensibility, and language-independence. noweb works
``out of the box'' with any programming language, and supports TeX,
latex, and HTML (Mosaic) back ends. A back end to support full
hypertext or indexing takes about 250 lines; a simpler one can be
written in 40 lines of awk. The primary sacrifice relative to WEB
is that code is not prettyprinted.

If you're brand new to literate programming, check out the FAQ for
the USENET newsgroup comp.programming.literate. There are also some
resources available through the noweb home page:

1995-08-02T06:27:24+00:00 x11/xcb Tool for managing x11 cut-buffers
Do you ever wish you could cut two or more separate pieces of text
at once from a window? Do you ever need to save the output from one
command for reuse in several subsequent tasks? Do you ever find
yourself wanting some easy means of globally exporting data, e.g.
to a parent shell, to another xterm or application, or to another
machine or user? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then
xcb is for you.

Xcb provides access to the cut buffers built into every X server.
It allows the buffers to be manipulated either via the command line,
or with the mouse in a point and click manner. The buffers can be
used as holding pens to store and retrieve arbitrary data fragments,
so any number of different pieces of data can be saved and recalled later.
The program is designed primarily for use with textual data.

possible, as it is often the case, the program may get rid of the
offending characters or fall back on approximations.

This program recognizes or produces around 150 different character

THE FREE WIDGET FOUNDATION

The Free Widget Foundation (FWF) was first organized in the summer of 1990, as
a grass-roots, all-volunteer effort to generate a publically accessible
repository for X widgets. The goal of the FWF was to gather a set of
powerful, flexible, freely-accessible widgets, assisting programmers to
construct complicated user-interfaces. Furthermore, we wanted to discourage
multiple parties from "reinventing the widget" multiple times, and encourage
the development of a single, quality object.
1995-07-12T04:17:26+00:00 audio/radio Radio over the Internet
This is Radio version 2.0, patchlevel 4 (a.k.a. 2.0.4).

If you have a local area network full of workstations with audio
capabilities and at least one FM/AM radio or other audio source, you
can broadcast the audio over the network, and let other users listen
to it.

This software works for Sun Sparcs running SunOS 4.0 or 4.1, for SGI
Indigo or Personal IRIS 4D/30 or 4D/35 workstations running SGI IRIX
4.0 or 3.3.2, NeXT workstations (running version 2.1), DECstations
equipped with DEC lofi, machines running the AudioFile audio server
from DEC CRL, and HP machines with audio hardware. At CWI, versions
of it have been in continuous use on a mix of Sun and SGI system types
for almost two years; version 1.0 (patchlevel 4) was last tested on a
NeXT. (I've heard that the program doesn't work on NeXT 3.1; if you
fix it please send me the changes!)

Man pages for "radio" and "broadcast" are provided.
1995-07-11T06:50:12+00:00 x11/xscreensaver Save your screen while you entertain your cat

arguments using resources. You can also add dpms (power saver) options.

Xscreensaver will make use of any installed OpenGL libraries, such as
Mesa (also in the ports collection).

The client-server model employed by xscreensaver make it a superior choice
to xlock, since no separate auto-locking program is needed. It's also
extremely easy to add new programs like xearth, or any other program that
can fill the root window as additional screensavers.

I ported this in an effort to get the newer code working under FreeBSD.
The port is fairly straightforward, but my main focus was being able to build
a functioning executable. Also, this is a port of beta code. It seems to
work just fine, but keep in mind that it is a beta.

More information on this port can be found at:

1995-07-07T23:50:10+00:00 security/pgp5 Public-Key encryption for the masses
This is PGP 5.0, a significant step forward from 2.6.*

CHANGES:

There are a number of large changes from the 2.6.2 distribution. Most
notable is that the command line has changed substantially. See
the pgp(1) man page for a discussion of how to use the new command
line.

Also, to allow easy interoperation with older versions on the same
system, a number of filename changes have been made.

NEW FEATURES:

PGP 5.0 contains support for new encryption methods (most notably
DSS/Diffie-Hellman), and built-in keyserver support. Also, the
command line has been redesigned to be more Unix and scripting
friendly.

Submitted-By: pcg@aber.ac.uk (Piercarlo Grandi)
Posting-Number: Volume 27, Issue 195
Archive-Name: team/part01

There exist a few filters that help tapes streams by buffering IO and
allowing reads to overlaps with writes under Unix. Most of these filters
rely on relatively unportable features, for example SYSV like shared
memory.

team is a filter that runs essentially unchanged on any Unix version, as
it relies only on features present in V7. A number of team processes
(team members) share a common input fd and a common output fd, and they
take turns at reading from the former and writing to the latter; they
synchronize by using a ring of pipes between them, where a "read-enable"
and a "write-enable" token circulate.

The team source is GPL'ed, and it comes with no warranty.

selections, cut/copy/paste, and closely follows the model of editors
on the Macintosh and NeXT platforms.

e93 supports columnar selection. It achieves this by allowing multiple
pieces of the text to be selected simultaneously (this is perhaps its
most unique feature).

e93 imposes no limits on the line length, file length, or number of
simultaneous files which it can edit.

e93 is able to handle all 8-bit binary codes without complaint, or
confusion.

e93 is highly configurable without recompiling because scripts which
control the editor can be written in Tcl.

e93 supports user-configurable syntax highlighting.

(excerpt from HylaFAX FAQ, http://www.hylafax.org/content/About_HylaFAX)

HylaFAX is a facsimile system for UNIX systems. It supports:
o sending facsimile
o receiving facsimile
o polled retrieval of facsimile
o transparent shared data use of the modem
o sending messages to pagers
Facsimile can be any size (e.g. A4, B4), either 98 or 196 lpi, and
transmitted/received as either 1D-encoded or 2D-encoded facsimile data
(2D-encoded data is frequently more compact and hence takes a shorter
time to communicate). Any modem that supports one of the standard
interfaces for facsimile operation can be used; i.e. any Class 1, Class
2, or Class 2.0 modem.

1995-05-19T09:49:09+00:00 benchmarks/bonnie Performance Test of Filesystem I/O
Bonnie: Filesystem Benchmark Program

Bonnie tests the speed of file I/O using standard C library calls.
It does reads and writes of blocks, testing for the limit of sustained
data rate (usually limited by the drive or controller) and updates on
a file (better simulating normal operating conditions and quite dependent
on drive and OS optimisations).

The per-character read and write tests are generally limited by CPU speed
only on current-generation hardware. It takes some 35 SPECint92 to read
or write a file at a rate of 1MB/s using getc() and putc().

The seek tests are dependent on the buffer cache size, since the fraction
of disk blocks that fits into the buffer cache will be found without any
disk operation and will contribute zero seek time readings. I.e. if the
buffer cache is 16MB and the Bonnie test file is 32MB in size, then the
seek time will come out as half its real value. The seek time includes
rotational delay, and will thus always come out higher than specified for
a drive.

This is lmbench-3.0-a9, a (sometimes controversial) system performance
measurement tool. lmbench is a suite of simple, portable, ANSI/C
microbenchmarks for UNIX/POSIX. In general, it measures two key features:
latency and bandwidth. lmbench is intended to give system developers insight
into basic costs of key operations. You can go to /usr/local/lib/lmbench and
do one of the following:

make results (to run the benchmarks)
make rerun (to rerun the benchmarks)
make see (to see how you did)

XEvil is a side-view, single or network-multiplayer, fast-action,
kill-everything, game for Windows and UNIX.

You have sinned in life. Now, you die and go to Hell. XEvil is the
contest that determines your fate in Hell for all eternity. At the
end of a game, you receive one of many possible rankings. A poor
player, for example, may spend the rest of time as "Satan's Earwax
Remover", while a good one might achieve a prestigious title such as
"VP of Hell Marketing" or even "Lead Software Engineer of Hell".

Russian language module for PGP
Currently, two charsets handled by PGP, it is koi8-r and alternate codes.
Internal representation of text files is koi8-r with CR/LF.
If you transfer text file out of your local system, don't

Without it, your text can't be read if local and remote system
charsets are different, f.e. Unix<-->MSDOS transfer.
1995-05-03T23:33:09+00:00 games/xonix Try to win land without colliding with `flyers' and `eaters'
Xonix is an old action game.

The purpose of the game is to move the player across the
empty region (whereby it leaves his way in a brown color
to show where it came along), and finally cut off a piece
of unfilled region by moving him back to some filled
region. If the player itself or the (unfilled yet) way
will be hit by a flyer, a life will be lost again. Once
the player's way reached another part of filled region,
the way and all adjacent unfilled regions where there is
no flyer in will be filled in turn. One level has com-
pleted as soon as 75 % of the originally unfilled area
have been filled this way.

Every level, there will be one flyer more. Every second
level, an additional player will be granted. Every fifth
level, an additional eater will be fired off.

The original xonix game has been seen somewhere on an old
PC/XT clone. This is a reimplementation from scratch,
done by Torsten Schönitz starting the project on a Macin-
tosh. The X11 support has been written by Jörg Wunsch
with the pleasant help by Alfredo Herrera Hernández.

[This is David Hedley's original README, FreeBSD port comments below]

PC Emulator for Unix and X Windows

As the title suggests, this is a Unix/X windows program which is
designed to emulate a standard 8086 based PC.

The emulator runs at about 8-10MHz 80286 speed on a Sun SparcStation
10/40 (without the -mviking flag) and at about 6MHz 8088 speed on a
33MHz 80486 box running Linux.

I have included a Postscript representation of my project report. It's
a bit out of date now, but it's the closest thing I've got to
documentation! I'll do some kind of latex thing for the next
release....

The program rather hogs the cpu but unmapping the window (iconifying
it) will put it to sleep.

1995-03-26T18:08:54+00:00 devel/bcc Bruce's C compiler (with as and ld); can do 16-bit code
This is Bruce Evans' C compiler and binutils package.


Either the compiler as the assembler are able to generate 16-bit code.
Hence it's possible to compile BIOS and DOS code under Unix.

The C compiler does understand K&R1 syntax, with a few restrictions
regarding bit fields. See the file work/bcc/bcc-cc1/bcc.bugs for
Bruce's bug list.

The binutils (assembler and loader) have been renamed to as86 and ld86
to not conflict with the system's assembler and loader, but they are
also available in the regular BINDIR (normally /usr/local/bin).

It's also possible to generate MC 6809 code with bcc/as. (This is a
compile-time option however, and not supported by the binary package
as it comes with FreeBSD.)

The Simple X Protocol Compressor

This program provides compression of the X protocol stream.
It is intended to be used to improve the performance of X applications
over a slow internet connection. (e.g. slip,cslip. or term) It assumes
a Unix operating system at both ends of the link. Transferring large
bitmaps or images through sxpc may be slower than not using it.
The algorithms used are geared primarily for the data exchanged
during interactive use where the same data may be sent several times
with only small changes. (e.g. editing)

WARNING WARNING DANGER DANGER
If you use this program use xauth to provide SECURITY, since
host-based security will be BYPASSED. See README.xauth in the work

1995-03-09T10:16:20+00:00 lang/elk Embeddable Scheme interpreter
Elk is a Scheme interpreter intended to be used as a general, reusable
extension language subsystem for integration into existing and future
applications. Elk can also be used as a stand-alone implementation of
the Scheme programming language.

One purpose of the Elk project is to end the recent proliferation of
mutually incompatible Lisp-like extension languages. Instead of
inventing and implementing yet another extension language, application
programmers can integrate Elk into their application to make it
extensible and highly customizable.

1995-03-09T00:49:22+00:00 misc/colorls
This is a simple hack to the FreeBSD /bin/ls to use ANSI sequences to
display file attributes in color. There is a -G flag (somewhat
similar to the -F flag). Take a look at the man page for details.

The program is called "colorls" and installs itself in /usr/local/bin.
The file patches/patch-aa is the diffs from the 3.0-stable (as of
2000/06/01) /usr/src/bin/ls directory.

Also, note that you need a "color-capable" terminal to enable colorls --
this means you should set your TERM to "xterm-color" or "kterm-color"
when using normal xterm or kterm, not "xterm" or "kterm" (which
termcap doesn't know that are color-capable).

1995-03-05T23:32:26+00:00 games/acm Aerial combat simulator for X11
ACM is a LAN-oriented, multiplayer aerial combat simulation. My main
design objective was to provide source code that could be easily
compiled and executed on a wide variety of platforms. To that end,
acm is written entirely in C, exploiting the programming features of
Unix, X11, and the BSD socket interface.

Players engage in air to air combat against one another using heat
seeking missiles and cannons.

ACM is implemented as two programs. The first, named "acm", is a small
program that, when invoked, starts a flight session on a given
workstation. The second component, named "acms", is a server process
that manages the multiplayer environment. It also manages the flight
simulation and display management that is required. Most players will
prefer to run the acms process on a back-end server system on their
local area network. Players at client workstations can then invoke the
acm program to begin play.

1995-02-27T21:43:12+00:00 graphics/ImageMagick Image processing tools (legacy version)
ImageMagick is a package for display and interactive manipulation of
images. The package includes tools for image conversion, annotation,
compositing, animation, and creating montages. ImageMagick can read and
write many of the more popular image formats (e.g. JPEG, TIFF, PNM, XPM,
Photo CD, etc.).

The package can be built _without_ the GUI (X11) support at all -- it
will not have the display, import, and animate functionality, but remain
extremely useful for image manipulation.

The optional "display" utility conflicts with the utility of the
same name from the misc/display port/package.

1995-02-27T20:23:12+00:00 audio/playmidi MIDI player
playmidi is a small, quick midi file player using the level two sequencer
of the voxware 3.0 package to play on general midi devices or FM or
Gravis Ultrasound. If no files are specified, playmidi will give a short
summary of usage options. If more than one file is specified, you may
skip to the next file while the current one is playing by pressing your
interrupt (usually control-c) key. If you invoke playmidi while it is al-
ready running, it will allow you to control the currently running invoca-
tion until its death, after which time all waiting invocations fight to
go first.

1995-02-24T12:54:57+00:00 misc/tkinfo Tk script to read GNU "info" files and display them
tkInfo is a tk script to read GNU "info" files and display them.
tkInfo can be used stand alone (via WISH), or embeded within an
application to provide integrated, on-line help.

Info files provide a robust hyper-text capability that is ideal for
on-line help. The format is suitable for both tty-based systems and
graphical systems. In addition, the same document source can produce
both a "nice" hardcopy manual and Info files. Note that most GNU tools
are documented in this way (via texinfo).

Info files can be created manually with any text editor, with the
support of the emacs "info" package, with the GNU "makeinfo" program,
or with the emacs scripts for latexinfo. The makeinfo program produces
a set of info files from TeX source that use the GNU texinfo style (the
one that uses "@" everywhere). Similarly, the latexinfo package (like
texinfo, but with latex commands and syntax) provides emacs scripts for
producing info files.

1995-02-23T16:00:04+00:00 editors/uemacs Full screen editor
MicroEMACS is a tool for creating and changing documents,
programs, and other text files. It is both relatively easy for the
novice to use, but also very powerful in the hands of an expert.
MicroEMACS can be extensively customized for the needs of the individual
user.

MicroEMACS allows several files to be edited at the same time.
The screen can be split into different windows and screens, and text may
be moved freely from one window on any screen to the next. Depending on
the type of file being edited, MicroEMACS can change how it behaves to
make editing simple. Editing standard text files, program files and
word processing documents are all possible at the same time.

There are extensive capabilities to make word processing and
editing easier. These include commands for string searching and
replacing, paragraph reformatting and deleting, automatic word wrapping,
word move and deletes, easy case controlling, and automatic word counts.

1995-02-19T09:25:45+00:00 graphics/vcg Visualization Tool for compiler graphs
The VCG tool reads a textual and readable specification of a graph and
visualizes the graph. If not all positions of nodes are fixed, the tool
layouts the graph using several heuristics as reducing the number of
crossings, minimizing the size of edges, centering of nodes. The
specification language of the VCG tool is nearly compatible to GRL, the
language of the edge tool, but contains many extensions. The VCG tool
allows folding of dynamically or statically specified regions of the
graph. It uses colors and runs on X11. (An older version runs on
Sunview).

1995-02-19T03:22:36+00:00 graphics/pixmap Pixmap editor based on XPM library
The pixmap program is a tool for creating or editing rectangular images
made up of colored pixels, i.e., pixmaps. Pixmaps are intensively used in
X to define window backgrounds, icon images, etc.
1995-02-17T23:32:34+00:00 comms/ecu Extended Call Utility
ECU (Extended Call Utility) is a personal and research communications
program originally written for users of SCO UNIX V.3.2/386 and XENIX V
on 80286 and 80386 systems. Support for other systems has been added
and further porting is possible with "minor" effort to other systems
based on or similar to UNIX System V.

ECU provides the classic terminal communications facility of passing
keyboard data to a serial line and incoming data to the computer video
display. In addition, a dialing directory, a function key mapping
feature, and session logging are available.

A very flexible procedure (script) language is also incorporated to
automate many communications tasks. In addition to augmenting
interactive tasks, by using shell scripts and ECU procedures, ECU can
perform batch-style communications sessions in an entirely "unattended"
fashion.

ECU presents to the host a flexible "ANSI" terminal type, accepting any
valid video control sequences from MS-DOS or SCO documentation as of
late 1990. It also fares well, though imperfectly, with Sun and VT-100
in-band video control sequences. Standards are great: everybody should
have one, especially if they call it "ANSI."
1995-02-17T10:53:08+00:00 audio/xmcd Motif CD player
Xmcd is a program that allows the use of the CD-ROM drive as a
full-featured stereo compact-disc player for the X Window System.

Most of the features found on real CD players are available in
xmcd, such as shuffle and repeat, track programming functions, a
numeric keypad, and track warp slider for direct track access.
Additional functions include sample play, A to B segment play,
volume control, balance control, etc. Several automation options
are also available on CD load, eject, play completion, and program
exit. A Channel Routing feature allows you to select from several
stereo or mono routing options. The volume control slider taper
characteristics can also be altered.

1995-02-15T23:51:24+00:00 sysutils/tua The Uucp Analyzer
This is TUA - "The Uucp Analyzer".

Its purpose is to collect all the information that the Honey Dan Ber
or the Taylor versions of the UUCP package put in their various logs,
tipically located in a few subdirectories on /usr/spool/uucp. It then
builds up a clear report, showing data from several different points of
view. It may even become an interactive customizable application by
linking in the TCL support.

It is fast, because all the data are maintained in binary trees; and
it has no arbitrary restriction on the size of the logs it can eat.
Very large sites can use the SoftChip Btree Library for faster searches.

It can maintains an history of the connections with the various sites
your machine is connected to, and a last-year summary of the amount of
data you received and transmitted, month-by-month.

You can get, in a chart form, the status of the usage of all your
serial port, so you can easily say when your modem is available for a
new link.

1995-02-14T08:32:41+00:00 audio/maplay MPEG audio player/decoder decoding layer I and II MPEG audio streams
The audio part of the MPEG standard specifies three layers, whereat each
layer specifies its own file format. All three layers are using similar
audio coding techniques, but they vary in efficiency and complexity.
Layer I needs the fewest calculation time for en-/decoding a stream, layer III
the most. But a layer I MPEG audio stream is bigger than a layer III stream
at the same quality. This program is able to decode and play only layer I
and II streams, layer III is not supported (yet?!?).

The maplay decodes layer I and layer II MPEG audio streams and plays them
using a CD-quality audio device or sends the to stdout normally as 16 bit
signed PCM values, interleaved for stereo streams.

This player supports all modes, which are single channel, stereo,
joint stereo and dual channel, and all bitrates except free mode.
The missing free mode support should not be a problem for now,
because I haven't seen such a stream yet.

bits that key generates. Clicking on a key simulates KeyPress/KeyRelease
events on the window of your choice. It is possible to change the KeySyms
and Modifiers generated by a key through a mouse-based interface. This
program can also write an input file for xmodmap to recreate your changes
in future sessions.

1995-02-12T08:57:14+00:00 irc/zircon An X11 interface to Internet Relay Chat
Zircon is an X11 interface to Internet Relay Chat. The software
is written in tcl/tk and uses its native features to provide network
communications. Suggestions for improvements to Zircon are welcome.
The author particularly interested in making the system useful for
those users in groups where JIPS and other national character sets
are used.

Zircon has more features than you could possibly imagine and
implements nearly everything that the irc II clients support as
well as many other useful and interesting features. This reflects
the power of tcl/tk and not wonderful programming (the programming
is wonderful of course, but that is an aside). The tcl/tk system
is excellent, and you need it on your machine NOW!

version 1.2.

Gofer is intended as an experimental language, particularly where type classes
are involved. Gofer extends the Haskell type class system in several ways.

The most significant features of Haskell not currently supported are:
modules, arrays, overloaded numeric constants, default declarations, derived
instances, contexts in datatype definitions.

1995-01-24T16:43:33+00:00 archivers/ha File archiver based on HSC compression method
HA is an archiver which I released in January 1993 as version 0.98.
After that I had plans to improve speed, archive handling etc. which
would have required total rewrite of the code. For that I unfortunately
could not find time. Because there has been quite considerably interest
for internals of HA (especially for the HSC compression method) I
decided to make a source level release from my current test version
(0.999 beta) and place it under GNU General Public License. The sources
for this version are not very consistent or clean, but everything should
work.

There are several improvements which should be made before this could be
called version 1.0. Some of the most obvious of these are:
- Compression methods should be coded in assembler for PC and using more
efficient data structures for 32 bit platforms. Current version does
some things only to overcome 64kB segments of 8086.
- UNIX port has still some problems and is missing some things (for example
a grouping operator in wildcard matches).
- File handling is far from optimum.
- Archive handling is not too clever either.
- Testing should be done more thoroughly as there are many special cases
in compression routines which get used very rarely.
- Documentation of code and algorithms is totally missing.

PGPsendmail is a drop-in wrapper for the standard sendmail programme
which resides as /usr/sbin/sendmail on most Unix systems. It allows the
automatic encryption of outgoing messages by using the recipient's PGP
public keys. It does *not* provide for automatic decryption of incoming
messages: such a feature would necessarily involve compromising your
passphrase. However, it can provide for automatic signing of outgoing
messages by using PGPdaemon.

The software provides a fast and efficient database system that supports
a supset of the ANSI SQL query language. Application programs can use
the mSQL client API library and access mSQL servers both on their local
machine and over TCP/IP networks.

1995-01-14T11:01:06+00:00 databases/msql Mini SQL server (version 2)
The port of mSQL 1.x lived in its own tree, /usr/local/Minerva. At the
time, mSQL was a part of a larger project called Minerva, to which other tools
would be added. These other tools would also live in /usr/local/Minerva.
As of the 2.x release of mSQL, the author of mSQL has put many of these
tools into the base mSQL distribution, so it is no longer feasible to have the
program live in its own directory.
So, in keeping with the BSD directory tree structure, you will find the
following changes between the "official" mSQL 2.x distribution and the FreeBSD
port.

This is a complete set of memory allocation functions (malloc and
friends) from the Computer Systems Research Institute at U of Toronto.

The allocator is small, fast and space-efficient.

It performs coalescing on frees.

It has hooks for profiling, tracing and memory leak detection.

It has very comprehensive and paranoid errorchecking as a compile
time option, enough to detect most forms of heap corruption.

Optionally, it attempts to be compatible with the proposed ANSI C
Standard definition for the standard library functions malloc(),
calloc(), realloc() and free(). By default, it is more or less
compatible with existing Unix malloc() functions - some
differences do exist. (Notably free(), cfree() returning void,
realloc() not accepting a freed block)

Scheme 48 is an implementation of the Scheme programming language as
described in the Revised^5 Report on the Algorithmic Language Scheme.
It is based on a compiler and interpreter for a virtual Scheme
machine. The name derives from our desire to have an implementation
that is simple and lucid enough that it looks as if it were written in
just 48 hours. We don't claim to have reached that stage yet; much
more simplification is necessary.
Scheme 48 is an implementation of the Scheme programming language as described

initial user environment. (This is not to say that more isn't available in
other environments; see below.)
Scheme 48 is under continual development. Please report bugs, especially in
the VM, especially core dumps, to scheme-48-bugs@s48.org. Include the version
number x.yy from the "Welcome to Scheme 48 x.yy" greeting message in your bug

XFM is a powerful file and applications manager program written using the X
toolkit. It contains virtually all of the features that you would expect in a
file manager -- move around your directory tree in multiple windows, and move,
copy or delete files with simple mouse operations. Directory displays are
updated automatically in regular intervals when the contents of a displayed
directory changes. The integrated application manager allows you to load files
into your favourite applications from the file manager by dragging icons. It
can also be used as a "shelf" onto which you can place files and directories
you are currently working with. A special LOAD action for application files
enables you to manage different application groups.

User-definable file types allow you to specify a command to be executed when
double-clicking on a file or dropping other files onto it. The command can
also prompt you for required parameters. Xfm makes it easy to configure
special kinds of actions such as, e.g., replacing the contents of a compressed
tar archive with a collection of selected files. A lot of corresponding
examples can be found in the distribution, including a fully functional
trashcan feature. Last not least, xfm can automatically mount and unmount
special devices like floppies as you open and close the corresponding
directories (mount points). So you won't have to fiddle around with mount or
mtools commands any more if all you want to do is copy some files between the
hard disk and your floppy drive.

1995-01-03T09:12:58+00:00 cad/acs
ACS is a general-purpose circuit simulator. It performs nonlinear
DC and transient analyses, Fourier analysis, and AC analysis
linearized at an operating point. It is fully interactive and
command driven. It can also be run in batch mode or as a server.
The output is produced as it simulates. Spice-compatible models
for the MOSFET (level 1 and 2) and diode are included in this
release.

Since it is fully interactive, it is possible to make changes and
re-simulate quickly. The interactive design makes it well suited
to the typical iterative design process used in optimizing a circuit
design. It is also well suited to undergraduate teaching where
Spice in batch mode can be quite intimidating. This version, while
still officially in beta test, should be stable enough for basic
undergraduate teaching and courses in MOS design, but not for
bipolar design.

In batch mode it is mostly Spice compatible, so it is often possible
to use the same file for both ACS and Spice.
