This directory contains the source files of the OGUP project.

The web homepage of the ogup project is located at http://ogup.osdn.io


=== BUILD ====================================================================

Building the OGUP requires an ANSI C compiler (preferrably gcc or clang).
Executing the buildall.sh script will compile all OGUP modules (dynamic
frontend gophermaps, as well as the 'gopherjoker' crawler).


=== RUN ======================================================================

Once the project is built, the 'frontend' directory can be served with a
gopher server to present users with the OGUP interface.
NOTE: This has been tested exclusively with the Motsognir gopher server, and
is unlikely to function properly with a different gopher server.

If the build process was successful, a 'gopherjoker' binary should have
appeared in the gopherjoker directory. This is a gopher crawler that will
spider the gopherspace. It should be loaded as such:

  $ gopherjoker ogupdb.dat ogupdb.cnt

ogupdb.dat is a comma-separated-value text file that gopherjoker uses as its
database of known gopher servers. ogupdb.cnt is a file that contains only
global counters of known servers, that is used by the OGUP frontend.

The ogupdb.dat and ogupdb.cnt files should be stored in the directory where
OGUP's frontend lives, so the frontend always has most up-to-date data.

Both ogupdb.dat and ogupdb.cnt are updated only once an hour by gopherjoker,
to avoid too much filesystem updates.


=== LEARNING NEW SERVERS =====================================================

gopherjoker learns about new gopher servers by discovering menu listings of
existing (known) servers. It is also possible to hand-feed gopherjoker with
new servers - to do so, a file '/tmp/gjoker_newhosts.csv' must be created. It
should contain the list of new servers for gopherjoker, one server per line.


=== LICENSE ==================================================================

All OGUP files are made available under the terms of the MIT License.
