Ficl (Forth inspired command language) is an ANS Forth interpreter written in C. Unlike traditional Forths, this interpreter is designed to be embedded into other systems as a command/macro/development prototype language. Ficl provides object extensions that can be used to wrap methods and structures of the host system without altering them.
The file check daemon monitors files according to rules defined in configuration files. When a file is considered stable (due to its age, presence of a flag file, etc.) then it gets copied to a new location. Rotating backups of the destination file can be made and owner, group and permissions can be specified for the destination. Some examples of where this utility has been found to be useful are: Moving files out of an incoming FTP directory in a timely manner. Moving files uploaded to a web server into directories with different user/group. This lets the administrator run the web server as a non-root user and accept uploads using web server based authentication and then move the files to a more secure area after the transfer. The details of how to determine whether a file is stable and what to do with it once it is are defined in a "Filespec" configuration file. There is a separate filespec for each file that will be monitored which means that each file can have unique behavior associated with it.
This is a much updated version of Mike Shanzer's fingerd-1.3. It is almost completely rewritten, well-debugged (i.e., more secure), and quite configurable. It supports ACLs, a message-of-the-day file, the ability to run programs for given user-IDs, and a full set of command-line options that make it mostly compatible with modern BSD versions. It is portable, uses GNU Autoconf and GNU Automake for builds, and it comes with a ready-to-use BSD makefile too.
