alived is a simple daemon and client for sending keepalive messages. The server keeps a list of hostname to IP address, useful for when a remote DHCP client changes IP addresses.

Release Notes: This release now does proper GNU-style command lines.
Release Notes: alived now maintains the 'last heard from' time. alive only runs once and exits; please add it to a startup script and/or a cron job. alookup's output was cleaned up, and the last-heard-from time was added.
Release Notes: The program is now fully functional. Old IPs are replaced with new ones, alookup now returns sane answers, and the code was cleaned up to function under most systems.
Release Notes: The alive daemon was completed--it now properly stores data from the client, and returns meaningful data to alookup.
Release Notes: This version begins a lookup utility and adds the necessary code to alived to respond to its queries.
