micro_inetd - simple network service spawner
micro_inetd port program [args ...]
Like inetd, this program listens on the net for requests and spawns a server to
handle them. However, it only handles one port and one program. The intended
use is when you have a server that expects to be run by inetd, but you only
want to run it temporarily and don't want to bother with putting it into
/etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf and restarting inetd. Instead, just start up
micro_inetd, and when you're done just ^C it.
- Full inetd lets you specify the socket type as one of stream, dgram, raw,
rdm, or seqpacket; micro_inetd only implements stream.
- Full inetd lets you specify wait or nowait; micro_inetd only implements
- Full inetd lets you specify a user-id to run the server as; micro_inetd
doesn't try to switch user-ids.
