As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard

1 This file is not meant to be proper documentation. See the file gnuserv.1 for
2 more information.
5 NOTE: This version of gnuserv has some enhancements over the original version
6 distributed by Andy Norman. See the end of this file for more details.
9 To install, copy gnuserv.el into a directory on your GNU Emacs
10 load-path. Edit Makefile and change INCLUDES to point to the src
11 directory underneath your emacs source tree (or make yourself a
12 config.h file in this directory by hand, starting with config.h.proto
13 as a first cut) and type:
17 This should compile the server and the two clients. Now put gnuserv,
18 gnuclient and gnudoit in a directory that users have in their executable
19 search paths.

40 If you find *any* problems at all with gnuserv, or you can think of better
41 ways of doing things (especially remote file access), please e-mail me at one

51 This version of gnuserv has been enhanced by a number of people, including
52 Bob Weiner <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Darrell Kindred <email@example.com>,
53 Arup Mukherjee <firstname.lastname@example.org>, and Ben Wing <email@example.com>. The
54 modifications are basically as follows:
56 Bob Weiner:
58 Integrated support for several versions of emacs. New requests
59 from gnuclient cause the creation of new frames. Removed the
60 restriction on the length of the string passed to gnudoit. Later
61 added a server-done-function variable to control what happens to
62 a buffer after the user is done with it. Mods to each of the .c
63 files as well as gnuserv.el.
65 Darrell Kindred:
67 Removed the restriction on the length of the string returned from
68 a gnudoit request, for the purposes of unix/internet sockets.
69 Allow the gnudoit request to be read from stdin if it's not
70 specified on the command line. Internet sockets are not opened
71 unless the GNU_SECURE variable is specified. Unix sockets are
72 created in a protected ancestral directory, since many Unix
73 variants don't enforce socket permissions properly. An internet
74 socket accepting local connections is not opened by default
75 because this would make it possibly to override all security on
76 the unix socket. See the man page for details. Unless told to do
77 otherwise by a command-line argument, gnuclient and gnudoit now
78 try to open a unix socket by default if support for them was
79 compiled in. Mods to each of the .c files and to gnuserv.el.
81 Arup Mukherjee:
82 Removed the restriction on the length of the string returned from
83 a gnudoit request, for the purposes of sysv ipc. Added support
84 for the "gnuserv-frame" variable allowing you to specify control
85 whether or not new screens are created in response to each
86 gnuclient request. Made a number of other bugfixes and changes to
87 the lisp part of the code, allowing gnuserv to work properly with
88 newer emacs versions. All the changes are listed in the changelog
89 at the beginning of gnuserv.el. Also fixed up the man page to
90 reflect the new gnuserv features. On HPs, stopped the "-r"
91 parameter (in gnuclient) from defaulting to /net/<remotehost>.
92 Not all installations want this, and it's much harder to debug
93 when things stop working. Changed the man page to reflect this.
94 Mods to each of the .c files, gnuserv.el and gnuserv.1
96 More recently - added Xauth(1X11)-style authentication to gnuserv (as
97 of version 2.1). Although the code is completely new, credit is
98 due to Richard Caley <firstname.lastname@example.org> ... he wrote a
99 prototype implementation from which I borrowed the basic
100 mechanism for hooking Xauth into gnuserv.
102 Ben Wing:
103 Added gnuattach.
