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 or download 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
    9 else
   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.
