To acquire the software for the Xnetlib client send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the line
send xnetlib.shar from netlib
as the body of the message. Netlib will return the file xnetlib.shar by email.
Xnetlib is available by anonymous FTP from netlib2.cs.utk.edu in the xnetlib directory. Both executables and source are available.
To use anonymous FTP to retrieve an executable file, type
ftp netlib2.cs.utk.edu anonymous <your email address> cd xnetlib binary get xnetlib.<arch>.Z bye
where <arch> is your machine architecture (alpha, hp9000, next, pmax, rs6000, or sun4). To use anonymous FTP to retrieve the Xnetlib source, type
ftp netlib2.cs.utk.edu anonymous your email address cd xnetlib binary get xnetlib.shar.Z bye
assuming your system has the imake facility. Then move the executable file, named xnetlib to where you want it. See Section 2.3.3 for more information about building Xnetlib.
If you retrieve an executable, you may also wish to retrieve the shar file xnetlib3.4.doc.shar, which contains the Xnetlib man page and quick reference card. These documents are already included in the source code shar file.
