sfn Build Status

A small and fast utility to send files over network.

Various notes

  • If you're running Arch Linux, you can install package sfn from AUR. However, it's slightly outdated (but I prefer the word "stable").
  • It won't compile with gdc on Ubuntu (Mint, Debian, etc.) because libphobos there is too old.

Building and running

Requirements:

  • D compiler of your choice (dmd, ldc or gdc)
  • make

If you already have all this, just type make (or make ldc, or make gdc) to build sources.

make install will install sfn to /usr/bin/ (other destinations are not supported yet). install also accepts DESTDIR variable allows you to set root folder different from / (for example: make DESTDIR=/tmp/mypkg install).

If you need to rebuild the manpage (typically you don't), install ronn and run make man.

Help

Usage:

sfn --listen [options] [files to send]
sfn --connect <address> [options] [files to send]

sfn will establish a connection, send all the files, receive all the files from another side and then exit.

-l and -s are aliases for --listen, -c is an alias for --connect.

Options:

  • --version, -v: Show sfn version and exit.
  • --help, -h: Show this text and exit.
  • --port, -p: Use specified port. Defaults to 3214.
  • --prefix, -f: Add prefix to received files' path and name. For example: /home/user/downloads/, sfn-, /etc/file-.
  • --no-external-ip, -n: Don't perform external IP detection and reverse DNS lookup.
  • --zenity, -z: Call zenity to select files using standard GTK dialog.
  • --no-integrity-check, -e: Disable integrity check after transfer. This option was added for compatibility with older versions of sfn.
