Latest "rfc's" package?

L A Walsh

I was looking for the latest release
of the 13.2 package "rfc-2011.9.9-44.1.2.noarch.rpm".

Is it under a different name, or is the 13.2 version
the latest released version?

Thanks!
-linda

which shows 2011 as the version for Leap 42.2 and 42.3, none for 42.1,
and 2008 for tumbleweed. All possibly obsolete, judging from the file name.

Thanks, but if it is under a different name, how would I know
what to search for?

Carlos only found the 2011 version, so its either the latest
version, or its under a different name (thus my question).

?

search for rfc

or search google for package of rfcs  


I am sure somewhere there is kept an up-to-date complete package of rfc's

if I was more interested, I would search.  it was *your* question.

FWIW, if you create a user-writeable directory, you can use this:

==== /usr/local/bin/rfc ====
#!/bin/bash
: ${PAGER:=less}
RFCPATH="/usr/local/share/doc/rfc" ### ADJUST THIS
RFC="${RFCPATH}/rfc${1}.txt"
FOUND=no
URL="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/"

ugz=( "gzip" "-dc" )
ubz=( "bzip2" "-dc" )
uxz=( "xz" "-dc" )

for ext in "" ".bz2" ".gz" ".xz"; do
    if test -f "${RFC}${ext}"; then
        FOUND=yes
        RFC="${RFC}${ext}"
        case "$ext" in
            *.gz)  CMD=( "${ugz[@]}" "${RFC}" );;
            *.bz2) CMD=( "${ubz[@]}" "${RFC}" );;
            *.xz)  CMD=( "${uxz[@]}" "${RFC}" );;
            *)     CMD=( cat "${RFC}" );;
        esac
        break;
    fi
done
if test "x$FOUND" != "xyes"; then
    echo "not found. Trying to fetch" >&2;
    if ! wget -O "${RFC}" "${URL}/rfc${1}.txt"; then
        exit 1;
    fi
    xz -v "${RFC}"
    CMD=( "${uxz[@]}" "${RFC}${ext}" )
fi

"${CMD[@]}" | "${PAGER}"
====

You could also download to tmp and "sudo" to mv it to the rfc-dir or
whatnot. Depends on your setup ;) Anyway ...

Then just happily use e.g. call 'rfc 1149' from your shell, and over
time, you'll get your archive.

If you want it now, there's e.g. 'wget -m -np'...

HTH,

    Thanks, though the point was not how to find the latest rfc's, online,
but to find what the latest SUSE, rfc package I could install, locally.

    That way I can use my existing 15-line script for local rfc's than
enhance it to include optionally download from an online location.

;-)

Though that brings up an idea: does anyone know of a user file
system that could provide online type access, as in:

>  less /url/http://www.ietf.org/download/rfc998.txt

(or using less with an htm filter):

>  less /url/http://www.ietf.org/download/rfc998.htm

Maybe a derivative one that only downloaded html-containing files

>  less /htm/...

or with page-requisites:

>  less /url-page/...

Too bad the linux-kernel doesn't follow POSIX rules and preserve
a leading '/' on a path like the NT-kernel allows, and you can run
stuff directly from the web, like:

(from the sysinternals page)
\\live.sysinternals.com\tools\<toolname>

Seems like a neat ability -- at least for stuff on a local net...
not sure about stuff from over the internet.

The text (from https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/default )
says:


    Sysinternals Live <https://live.sysinternals.com/>

Sysinternals Live is a service that enables you to execute Sysinternals
tools directly from the Web without hunting for and manually downloading
them. Simply enter a tool's Sysinternals Live path into Windows Explorer
or a command prompt as https://live.sysinternals.com/<toolname> or
 \\live.sysinternals.com\tools\<toolname>.

You can view the entire Sysinternals Live tools directory in a browser
at https://live.sysinternals.com <https://live.sysinternals.com/>.



Hmmm... It "used" to work... tried it just now, and didn't hmmm...
Maybe my proxy is blocking it or something...

I mean something along the lines of the auto-mounter that mounts
such things as part of the file system -- maybe a User-mode
file system or such...?
