Projects / xtell


xtell allows you to send messages between computers running xtell server. It is easy to use in scripts (i.e. to notify you when you get a mail or something else happens) or as a network-aware replacement for write(1). It was originally based on Michael Bacarella's ident2 server and Jozef Knepp's VMS implementation.

            some minimal buffer calculation errors
            noticed in xtell(version 2.6), when glanced at briefly, that there are some buffer miscalculations. such as, one or two byte buffer exceeding possibilities -- usually exceeds with static data though. but, a general example; connect to xtelld(port 4224) and send '[20+ bytes]:::\n' and it will memory fault. (won't show up if xtelld is backgrounded)
