/cstream, General-purpose stream-handling tool with bandwidth limiting
3.1.1, Package name:
cstream-3.1.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
cstream is a general-purpose stream-handling tool like UNIX' dd,
usually used in commandline-constructed pipes.
Sane commandline switch syntax.
Exact throughput limiting, on the incoming side. Timing variance in
previous reads are counterbalanced in the following reads.
Precise throughput reporting. Either at the end of the transmission
or everytime SIGUSR1 is received. Quite useful to ask lengthy
opertions how much data has been transferred yet, i.e. when
writing tapes. Reports are done in bytes/sec and if appropriate in
KB/sec or MB/sec, where 1K = 1024.
SIGUSR2 causes a clean shutdown before EOF on input, timing
informating is displayed.
Build-in support for fifos. Example usage is a 'pseudo-device',
something that sinks or delivers data at an appropriate rate, but
looks like a file, i.e. if you test soundcard software. See the
manpage for examples.
Accepts 'k', 'm' and 'g' character after number for "kilo, mega,
giga" bytes for overall data size limit.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for misc category
Problems found locating distfiles:
Package colorls: missing distfile ls.tar.gz
Package molden: missing distfile molden-4.6/molden4.6.tar.gz
Package softmaker-office-demo: missing distfile ofl06trial.tgz
Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden). All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

- Add LICENSE= x11
- Update cstream 2.7.5 to 3.1.1
-n <nbytes_to_stream> was not clear to use numbers > 2 GB. I didn't
notice since it worked fine if you used suffixes "K/M/G" as long as
the number was < 2 G. Sorry about that.
O_DIRECT supported for input.
IPV6 support for IPV6 day 2011.
The IPV6 support shouldn't break anything after hostname lookup
succeeds. Issues might be building on older platforms if I screwed up
the autoconf mechanism to not compile it in.
Having said that, assorted little code cleanups are in this release,
too. They shouldn't break anything but non-IPV6 things were touched.
Aftermath for 2.7.4 - 2.7.6:
I'm afraid that support for the '-B <size_of_buffer>' was clobbered in
2.7.4 or whereabouts. This one allowed you do have a reader do
multiple reads before the writer could write or vice versa.
Change reverted in 2.7.6.
2.7.4 and 2.7.5 do not have working -B.
Support platforms that do not have open(2) with O_DIRECT.
Such as MacOS X.
Revert 2.7.3 which broke -B

* NetBSD and general pkgsrc compatibility. Should get rid of the only
patch used in pkgsrc.
* Print the message that we switch to normal from O_DIRECT only when
verbose > 0.
* More c flags changes for more portability.
* Fix compilation under Redhat-7.3.
* Support for $CSTREAM_AUDIO_BITRATE.
