support NetEvents as well as TCPCMD.
- I will break out the RFC date stuff from the TCPCMD so that it can be
used in conjuction with NetEvents (or other simpler scripts) that need the
date stuff but not all of the TCPCMD.
- I will be writing an application version of the TCPCMD based on what was
going to be the b8 sources (a complete rewrite of the TCP code!), which
includes support for many of the things that users have asked for - disk
I/O, transparent filters (base64, binhex, macbinary, etc.), PowerPC native,
OpenTransport native, etc. This application will be FULLY compatible with
the NetEvents AE suite (though I will end up extending it where appropriate
to add the needed features), to maintain compatibility and give users a
- TCPCMD, as a UCMD, will still be supported by Alan and I for those that
want an internal/"built-in" set of TCP functionality for Frontier. I plan
to roll as much of the new application functionality into the UCMD as is
