In the last few days, I have put up a few things at tsx-11, and now I
am getting around to announcing them.
bash manual in dvi format with fonts and instructions
patch from 0.96 to 0.96a
new vgalib sources
/pub/linux/sources/usr.bin/gnuplot.src.tar (not compressed: it's
smaller this way)
gnuplot. Notice that the source is distributed as original source and
diffs, as that is what the gnuplot license requires.
Short Adverti*t for 'getty_ps'
This is a replacement getty/uugetty program, pulled from comp.sources.misc,
with a few changes so it compiles under linux. The major features of this
+ Can be used as a normal getty, or as "uugetty" to allow
bi-directional usage of modem lines.
+ Reads a "defaults" file at runtime, so that a single binary
can be configured differently on individual lines. This also
allows you to change getty's behavior without recompiling.
+ Let's you specify a program other than "login" to be executed
after the user name is entered.
+ (and the best for last:) The line can be "initialized"
before sending the login banner (/etc/issue) and prompt with
the use of an expect/send sequence not unlike that used by the
UUCP L.sys (or Systems) file.
+ (and new in version 2.0:) The CONNECT message from the modem
can be used to set the line speed; no more having to toggle
the speed by sending <break>'s or CR's.
I posted source only, because of the admonitions about distributing shared
lib binaries. The static versions are 100k each, about 3 times a shared
binary. At any rate, it is fully configured, all you need to do is type
'make' to build it.
getty_ps-src.tar.Z includes source and man pages.
