1000. notes and index


1001. Disclaimer

Read at your own risk.  The current, previous, or original authors
make no claim as to fitness for any purpose or absence of any errors,
and offer no warranty.  Do not eat.


1002. I want mail and/or news on msdos!  what software is there?

then read on!  this part of the FAQ is the big answer to that one
question.  to use it, you'll need to know:  how will you be sent
mail?  (usual choices:  uucp/rmail, SMTP/POP/IMAP)  how will you
be sent news?  (usual choices:  uucp/rnews, NNTP)


1003. summary only - no reviews

this is (right now) a summary only.  if you feel more information
is required to be useful, mail me, keeping in mind that there is
another posting which has a lot of detail (esj's `personal uucp'
list).  it is posted very infrequently.  due to illness, it has
not been updated for quite some time, as far as I know.

this post is meant primarily to let people know what is available,
so they can grab the packages and evaluate them for themselves.

if you are looking for reviews, post your requirements and see
who else knows what you need.  please do not be vague -- no one
can help you when you just say you're looking to evaluate some
`mail packages'.  what kind of network is in place?  or is it for
a single-user site?  how much are you willing to pay per seat?
what sort of interface do you need?  what platform?  how
sophisticated are your users?  etc.

I will not be putting any reviews in here, partly because they would be
difficult to maintain, and partly because I want to avoid any flak from
a negative review which I did not write.

if you want to periodically post a collection of reviews, go ahead.
you don't need my approval.


code  requires
----  --------
[dvx] DesqView/X
[geo] GEOS (probably will require v2.0?  none on the list yet)
[msw] MS Windows (often requires v3.1)
[os2] OS/2 (often requires v2.1)
[wnt] MS Windows NT

I have tried to complete all the required codes.  however, I have
not tried all packages personally.  if I am missing one for your
package, please inform me, so that people who do not have the required
underlying software do not waste time or money obtaining it.  thanks.


1004. what the addresses mean

when a location reference is given that looks like this:
  ftp://``wuarchive.wustl.edu/mirrors/msdos/uucp/
this does not imply that it is the only place where the file
is available on the Internet.  you may want to use `archie'
or any web search engine to help you locate the closest
(network-cost-wise) copy of the file.

for brief help with archie, see the comma intro.

the Coast to Coast Software Repository seems to have disappeared
in mid-1998.

the special entry ``coast:'' indicates the Coast to Coast
Software Repository collection, available in many places, including
CD-ROMs, and its main ftp mirror, ftp://ftp.coast.net/Coast/ -- if you
connect to <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/> you'll get a list of mirrors.

most files can be found at <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/>,
and in particular <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/waffle.html>,
<http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/uucp.html>, and
<http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/offline.html>.

Coast to Coast seems to be in the process of discontinuing their
Software Repository.

Coast/SimTel had decided to stop allowing files which do not include
the address and phone number of the author, which annoys me
to no end.  there are rumors that this policy has been dropped;
if not, consider alternate sites.

Coast to Coast used to use the name `SimTel', but has renamed its
collections directories (but probably not all the mirrors) to `Coast',
so I have reflected that change here.

the special entry ``simtelnet:'' indicates the SimTel.net collection,
available in many places, including CD-ROMs, and its main ftp
mirror, ftp.simtel.net:/pub/simtelnet/ -- if you connect to
<http://www.simtel.net/simtel.net/> you'll get a list of mirrors [?].

SimTel.net, which is clearly not a network provider, and is thus
badly misnamed, is run by Walnut Creek (a Net-friendly CD-ROM vendor).

the special entry ``cica:'' indicates the cica collection,
available in many places, including CD-ROMs, and its primary
ftp site, ftp://ftp.cica.indiana.edu/pub/pc/win3/.

see also ftp.winsite.com , cica's new home(?).

the file name reflects the latest version that I knew of (or was
told of) at the time this FAQ was sent out.  if you know a newer
one is available, and there was no announcement posted to comma
after a week or so, please send me the information for inclusion
(or better yet, post the entire announcement to comma so everyone
can get the whole story, instead of just the summary here).

see also the `announcements' section in the comma intro on how to
get the announcements automatically crossposted to comma.


1005. maintainer index

this information is culled from public postings to newsgroups,
or files available to the public on the Internet.  because of
this, I have not tried all the addresses to make sure they are
still functional, nor do I have the time to do a routine check
of them every so often.

you may also want to check, e.g.,
  ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/pd2/author35.zip
  ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/pd2/authwn07.zip

please do not abuse these people's time -- send them mail specific
to their own products, not about how to get files via ftp.  that
gives them more time to work on software, and that benefits us all.

if you have some burning questions, the best thing you could
possibly do is to check out news.newusers.questions -- there's
a lot of information already there.

maintainers:
  if I have the wrong address or a suboptimal address listed here,
  _please_ contact me directly so that I can correct it for you as
  quickly as possible.  I don't want to put any email addresses in
  here that don't want mail.  thanks.

  some addresses are for people who ported a package from one platform
  to another, not the author(s) of the original package.

1006. location index

if you are the maintainer of a package, and I have shown a site
that you feel is not appropriate, please let me know.  if I have
shown a frequently-updated mirror site, keep in mind that using
a mirror site that has everything on it may be easier for users than
having to go to a different site for every package.  if I have shown
a site which mirrors, but too infrequently, please inform me of a
better reference.

many of these files come from the coast repository.  the main
site is ftp.coast.net but http://www.coast.net will give you
a list of mirrors worldwide and connect you to them.

please try to strike a balance between instant availability of
the newest versions and practical ability to handle the transfers.
if your software is available on a bogged down SLIP link and two
days later on ftp.uu.net, I would rather point people to the latter.

2000. uucp

2001. discussion

at the heart of uucp is `uucico', which is a file transfer protocol,
like kermit or zmodem.  however, with uucp it is easier, or at least
there are conventions which make it portably _possible_, to do some
networking/system administration tasks, like:

  - queue a file transfer to be done automatically at a later time
    when phone rates are lower

  - assign a command to be run once a file is received
    (common examples include rmail for delivering mail, and rnews
    for unbatching network news).  this command can have parameters,
    such as an address to pass to rmail

uucp has, historically, often been poorly/incompletely implemented,
and these poor/incomplete implementations have often been relatively
slow.  this does not mean uucp itself is slow, and we are seeing
more uucp implementations of late which are fast, yet still as
network-capable as uucp has always been.

the 2000s section will look at uucico implementations.  often, these
come with add-ons to make up a full uucp suite -- uucp, uux, uuqueue,
and similar programs.

3000. mail/news transport agents, batchers, servers

3001. discussion

some packages work with messages stored on disk and transferred to other
machines later (often using uucp, and the rmail and rnews commands),
while others send or receive the mail immediately over a network
connection (often using SMTP, POP, or IMAP for mail, and NNTP for news).

5000. mail/news user agents

5001. discussion

some sites mount their news disks over (e.g.) NFS, so the news appears
as, for instance, x:\news\comp\mail\misc\22694 (this would be the
22694th article in the group comp.mail.misc).  on such a system, you
should be able to read mail or news with any of the `filesystem'
packages (possibly with some extra setup).  most other IP network
(TCP/IP, SLIP, PPP) connections are with NNTP, SMTP, POP, or IMAP.

with some tweaking (usually just duplication of configuration files)
you can often read mail/news with any of the filesystem-based
packages (snews' separate format is the biggest exception).  you
might not be able to post/reply very easily, due to the more
drastic differences in the file layouts the uucico modules expect.
unfortunately, uucp often deals with file names like D.foo2b6IC
which Unix sites can handle easily, but msdos cannot.  there are
a few obvious ways to translate these names to msdos-compatible
names, but, unfortunately, they're not compatible with each other.

there have been intentions posted of having more software work with
more of the uucico layouts, which is a Good Thing.  waffle and
fsuucp, at least, have explicitly documented their conversion routines
in the past (and fsuucp has moved to waffle-compatible munging).  and
uupc ships with source.
