./misc/cstream, General-purpose stream-handling tool with bandwidth limiting

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 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.

Featues:
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.

Log message:
(pkgsrc)
 - Add LICENSE= x11
(upstream)
 - Update cstream 2.7.5 to 3.1.1
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.

3.1.0:
------
  O_DIRECT supported for input.

3.0.0:
------
  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:
----------------------------
  ATTENTION:
  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.

2.8.0:
------
  Support platforms that do not have open(2) with O_DIRECT.
  Such as MacOS X.

2.7.6:
------
  Revert 2.7.3 which broke -B
