Auxio Finger

afinger is a configurable finger client, written in Perl. It can be used both together with a finger daemon and from the command line. afinger honours a .nofinger file in home directories, you can set a minimum and maximum UID, use a Fortune program for erroneous requests, and virtually control each part of the returned information.
