gopherd - the GoFish gopher server
gopherd [-dp] [-v] [config_file]
GoFish is a very simple gopher server. It is designed with security and low
resource usage in mind. GoFish uses a single process that handles all the
connections. This provides low resource usage, good latency (no context
switches), and good scalability.
GoFish runs in a chroot(2) environment. This means that
GoFish can only serve files from the root directory or below. While GoFish
must run at root privilege to be able to use port 70, it drops to a normal
user while accessing files.
