TkNapster is a bare-bones Napster client written in Tcl/Tk. TkNapster is a bare-bones Napster client written in Tcl/Tk. It supports chat, firewalled download and upload, hotlists and a limited set of privileged user (e.g. moderator/admin) functions.

TkNap is a napster client written in Tcl/Tk. For installation instructions see 'INSTALL'.

To add your shared MP3 files, use the '/uladd' command to add a base directory to search recursively for MP3 files. To remove a directory, use the '/ulrem' command. You can get a listing of your current shared directories with the '/uldirs' command.
Every time you change the contents of any of your shared directories, use the command '/uladd' again on the specific directory to update the file list and notify the server of the changes.

If the '.tknaplist' file list should become "out of sync" with your current shared directories for some reason (most probably because you have edited the directories in '.tknaprc' outside of TkNap, which is *not* recommended), just delete it and it will be rebuilt upon thenext invocation of the program.

Note: Try to avoid making changes to '.tknaprc' while the program is running. Since TkNap loads this file into memory on startup and in in some cases writes it back to disk on exit, it will overwrite the changes you made.

When someone initiates a download from you, the background of text boxes will change to a brighter color as a notification. It will "go back to normal" when there are no longer any active uploads.

Resume of a partially downloaded file from a previous session will only work if it has been saved with its original name.

What's New in This Release: (napRecurse): Now accepts symbolic links (provided they point to regular files). Error messages while getting MP3 info now goes to the info window instead of popping up a message box.
napLib/mp3info.c (MP3InfoCmd): Now using Tcl_UtfToExternalDString() to handle international characters in filenames.
AUTHORS, README,, Updated the e-mail address.
