Table Of Contents

SYNOPSIS

nnsd ?-localonly flag? ?-port port?

DESCRIPTION

Please read Name service facility, introduction first.

The application described by this document, nns, is a simple command line server for the nano name service facility provided by the Tcllib packages nameserv, and nameserv::server. Beyond that the application's sources also serve as an example of how to use the server package nameserv::server.

This name service facility has nothing to do with the Internet's Domain Name System, otherwise known as DNS. If the reader is looking for a package dealing with that please see either of the packages dns and resolv, both found in Tcllib too.

USE CASES

nnsd was written with the following main use case in mind.

  1. Run a nano name service on some host.
