As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.
1 This is the standard netbiff file system backend. It will understand any
2 file regardless of format since it relies on sizes and access time. It is
3 run without any arguments. The logic for biffing is such:
5 if file has been read more recently than written (atime > mtime)
6 send reset
7 else if file has been written more recently AND file size has increased
8 send update
10 do nothing
12 Netbiffd respects the following environment variables:
13 NETBIFFD_IGNORE_ATIME - If set to a non-zero integer, don't take file times
14 into account when sending updates.
