File Juggler -- the software for convenient browsing of FTP archives
The idea behind it was rather simple: using CGI scripts as processing
tools and WWW browser as user interface, display the structure and
content of typical anonymous FTP server in a convenient, easily navigated
Also read my humble work notes on design and
implementation if you're really interested.
File Juggler version 1.0 has been implemented and is now installed on two
ftp servers at Sternberg Astronomical Institute, Moscow University:
The source code is not available yet for general distribution.
- crydee.sai.msu.ru archive (mostly
OS/2 software, recreation and leisure)
- SAI FTP archive
(lots of free material available on the Internet, including
astronomy, Unix software, Linux etc.)
Version 1.0 can only work with one ftp site at a time (on which it is
installed). Next version which will provide interface to several
ftp servers simultaneously is under development.
