#!wml -oindex.html #include "frame.wmi" #Desc: sigd is my very own perl-script, that makes your ~/.signature into a pipe and writes randomly (or sequentially) files from a given directory into that pipe. <div align="center"> <img src="pics/sigd.png" alt="[sigd]"> <br clear="all"> <big style="color:<<COLOR__C>>"><b>sigd - SIGnature Daemon</b></big> </div> <hr> <div align="center"> <h2>About</h2> </div> <p>  This page is about the <i><b>SIG</b>nature <b>D</b>aemon</i> done by <link rhonda>Rhonda</link>. If you were looking for another program with the same name take a look at the end of the page. </p> <p>  What <i>is</i> this <b>sigd</b> you might ask... Well, it creates a pipe called <i>.signature</i> in your homedir from which mailprograms takes text that will be appended to your mails. What <b>sigd</b> does is that it gives everyone that wants to read from <i>.signature</i> a random signature file situated in a <i>.sig</i> dir in you homedir. </p> <hr /> <div align="center"> <h2>Download Section</h2> </div> <p>  You can download the source-package directly from here:<br /> <a href="sigd-0.10.3.tar.gz">sigd-0.10.3.tar.gz</a><br /> Older Versions:<br /> <a href="sigd-0.10.2.tar.gz">sigd-0.10.2.tar.gz</a><br /> <a href="sigd-0.10.0.tar.gz">sigd-0.10.0.tar.gz</a><br /> <a href="sigd-0.9.1.tar.gz">sigd-0.9.1.tar.gz</a><br /> <a href="sigd-0.8.2.tgz">sigd-0.8.2.tgz</a><br /> <small><i>Try to right-click on the link if you just get some strange signs on your screen after the click.</i></small> </p> <p>  It contains the following files: </p> <pre> sigd-<i>version</i>/sigd.pl sigd-<i>version</i>/README sigd-<i>version</i>/AUTHORS sigd-<i>version</i>/COPYING sigd-<i>version</i>/ChangeLog </pre> <hr /> <div align="center"> <h2>Plans for future releases</h2> </div> <ul> <li><s>a possibility to start it as <i>real</i> daemon</s> -- <b>DONE</b> with version 0.9.1, thanks to <link akrenn>Andreas Krennmair</link></li> <li><s>a lock file so no 2 sigd may run for one user</s> -- <b>DONE</b> with version 0.9.1, thanks to <link jochen>Jochen Striepe</link></li> <li><s>A posibility to rehash the signature files without having to restart using SIGHUP</s> -- <b>DONE</b> with version 0.10.0, thanks to # <link bernd>Bernd Petrovitsch</link></li> Bernd Petrovitsch</li> <li>Use a log-file (or maybe syslog) if something bad happens.

It uses a different approach: While my sigd uses a pipe to get true random content the other version overwrites the file every 10 seconds (that's the default, you can of course change it :). If you are interested in that project (or were looking for it) you should take a look at <link sigd2>this page</link> (don't you simply hate this linking name conventions? *<i>sigh</i>*). </p>
