That's the size of it. Linux's dip package looks really neat, especially
after I spent 3 months trying to write something similar in Perl using
slattach (and re-writing slattach, too).
i tried to get this to work for me the other day, because i was sick of
the limitations of chat(8). i was not, um, impressed at all. beyond having
to port a system v style program (not posix), i found something that was
extremely attached to linux-specific functionality, and would really need
a full re-think to work for netbsd.
i may have the source i was working with still, however. mail me if you want
a copy of it.
