net-misc / pipes

Very versatile TCP pipes

Official package sites : https://bisqwit.iki.fi/source/pipes.html ·

I just noticed that netpipes doesn't support bidirectional pipes. So I made my own version. Now I can say in computer A that "plis 12345 -io ohjelma" and in computer B that "pcon A 12345 -io ohjelma2", and they communicate together then. My example utilization was that I can send the picture of SNES-emulator to another computer via network, and grab the keyboard input there, so get two consoles to the same game. My friend wanted to watch when I play FF6, but didn't want to sit next to my monitor, and asked if he could get the picture to his monitor. And he got it. Then he asked if he could play it from his computer at the same time as me... And now it works too. Other ways of use can everybody invent theirselves. It's really easy to make simple server software with this. For example, do "plis 79 -io finger" and then you have a finger-service. Or "plis 5555 -o 'cat signature'" and then port 5555 gives your signature.

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
