Apollo

Apollo is a file serving script for XChat, which uses public commands (such as !nick, @nick etc) in much the same way as mIRC's OmenServe or SDFind.

A Brief History

I wrote Apollo several years ago, but grew tired of tracking down the many small bugs in it. So while it worked, it was unreliable. A guy called Boredom took over the project, and renamed it to Asoka, tracking down my bugs, and adding a lot of cool features. Unfortunately his site seems to be down (you can view Google's cached copy of the page here), so getting a copy of Asoka is tricky.

Since there seems to be some demand for an XChat serving script, I've decided to resume work on Apollo. Hopefully I'll have a new version ready soon, but in the mean time, this page hosts older versions of the script.

Downloads

The downloads page is at http://www.linuxbox.co.uk/apollo/. If you'd like your list of files to contain (in the case of multimedia files) information such as bitrate, samping rate etc, you'll also need to download the MP3-Info Perl module.
