It provides routines and help for implementing IP based servers (currently TCP, UDP and ICMP). It is also possible to use named pipes for all connection oriented protocols. Many people need server functionality within their applications. However, many people experience problems with select()- or poll()-loops, and with non-blocking operations. This application demonstrates various aspects of advanced network programming. You can use it for implementing your own servers or for understanding how certain network services and operations work. The package includes a couple of servers that work already: an HTTP server, for example. One of the highlights is that you can run multiple protocols on the same port. The application itself is single threaded but it uses helper processes for concurrent name resolution and ident lookups. Serveez-MG was based on a much grander effort called GNU Serveez, which aimed to be a generic server framework for multiple architectures. It can still be found on the http://www.gnu.org/software/serveez . Unfortunately, it has not been updated in many years. Requirements ============ Serveez-MG needs GNU Guile (Ubiquitous Intelligent Language for Extensions). This current version is known to work with Guile 2.0.6 and later. Installation ============ Unpack the distribution tarball: $ tar xvzf serveez-mg-<version>.tar.gz (using GNU tar) $ gzip -cd serveez-mg-<version>.tar.gz | tar xvf - (using another tar) Change into the source directory: $ cd serveez-mg-<version> Configure the source package for your system: $ ./configure Now compile the package: $ make Install Serveez-MG: $ make install You must have root privileges if you want to install the package in the standard location (/usr/local) or in any location that is only writable by root. If you have problems building the package out of the box, this is not surprising. This program has not been tested on a variety of platforms, yet. For further information on installing the package, please consult the file INSTALL included in this distribution. Getting the latest Git snapshot =============================== You can always get the latest Serveez-MG version from its Git repository. The Git version is not guaranteed to work and might not even compile. The current repository is at git://github.com/spk121/serveez-mg.git You can browse it at http://github.com/spk121/serveez-mg
