rfc-reader from command line
Date: May 13, 2013
so a couple of weeks ago i decided to write an rfc-reader that is usable from the command line.
Here it is.
you can search for a bcp, fyi, ien, std, and an rfc.
then when you select one to read, a formatted term will pop up with it open.
i know there are hundreds of these, but i wrote one up anyway.
Usage: rfc-editor <name (-n)|read (-r)|search (-s)> <####> <bcp|fyi|ien|std|rfc> Usage examples: rfc-editor name 3334 rfc # displays RFC #3334 name ex: 3334 Policy-Based Accounting. T. Zseby, S. Zander, C. Carle. October 2002. (Format: TXT=103014 bytes) (Status: EXPERIMENTAL) rfc-editor search
rfc # Displays index of matches with RFC #'s ex: rfc-editor search transport rfc 0905 ISO Transport Protocol specification ISO DP 8073. ISO. April 1984. (Format: TXT=249214 bytes) (Obsoletes RFC0892) (Status: UNKNOWN) 0939 Executive summary of the NRC report on transport protocols for Department of Defense data networks. National Research Council. February 1985. (Format: TXT=42345 bytes) (Status: UNKNOWN) rfc-editor read 38 fyi # read fyi #38
Thanks for the cold coffee… well, at least I don’t have to get my own now! 🙂 I was just about to write one of these.
