SUMMARY
-------
This is a self-contained port of the popular distcc distributed
compilation package for AmigaOS.

For more information and documentation on distcc please visit
the support web site at http://distcc.samba.org/

All of the distcc tools are available including:
 distcc          - client for dispatching compiles
 distccd         - server for servicing compile requests
 distccmon-text  - text based monitor tool
 distccmon-amiga - GUI based monitor tool


FEATURES
--------
The following features are disabled in this port:
 - inetd mode
 - syslog support
 - ssh support
 - daemon detaching
 - masquerading

All remaining features including the multi-threaded pre-forking daemon,
lzo compression and GUI monitor are all present.

When combined with GNU make's parallel build feature and a pool of
servers, the distcc package can save a lot of time compiling larger
projects.


INSTALLATION
------------
Copy distcc#? SDK:C CLONE

Next either setup a home directory and the HOME environment variable
or use the DISTCC_DIR to point to where distcc files will be stored.
The distcc client maintains a set of files in the .distcc directory.

Finally, setup the DISTCC_HOSTS environment variable to describe
your network and you are ready to do distributed compiles.

Please see the distcc documentation and use the --help option
on the client and server for more details.


SECURITY
--------
The distccd daemon uses simple IP filtering for a bit of security
specified with the --allow option. Don't forget you can also specify
a network of nodes.

For example,
 distccd --allow 10.10.10.0/24

will allow all the nodes in your LAN on the 10.10.10.0
network. Here is a reference on subnetting for more info:

HISTORY
-------
2.18.3-8 - another fix for the distccd command searching
         - changed monitor update rate from .75 s to .5 s

2.18.3-7 - fixed distccd command searching
         - disabled DOS requesters in distcc and distccd
         - compiled with clib2 1.200

2.18.3-6 - compiled with SDK 51.22
         - added process birth handshake to distcc and distccd
         - fixed distcc error handling when server is unavailable
         - fixed distccd waitpid which could leave acceptors hanging
         - fixed distccd premature exit
         - increased accuracy of cpp state reporting
         - remote compiles now have a slightly higher task priority
         - changed size and layout of GUI monitor

2.18.3-5 - compiled with beta SDK 51.21
         - acceptors exit with EINTR with ctrl-c now
         - reduced acceptor lifetime to 25 jobs
         - fixed makefile to link with correct clib2-ts flavour
         - reworked main daemon processing loop so that child processes
           are always collected correctly
         - no longer crashes if daemon is interrupted while starting up

2.18.3-4 - compiled with beta SDK 51.20
         - should no longer report elapsed time as a very large number
         - removed all Forbid() calls and changed ctrl-c breaking to use
           ProcessScan()
         - removed Amiga-specific limits on number of processes
         - now returns the actual errno from an interrupt
         - added breaking of child processes launched by acceptors
         - added precondition checking to wait routines
         - now uses death messages to synchronize with child processes

2.18.3-3 - compiled with beta SDK 51.17
         - fixed some new compile warnings from the updated GCC
         - applied argv fixes from Michael Donohue
         - fixed for IDOS->GetProcSegList() API change
         - updated the docs
         - removed recursion safeguard tracing debug messages

2.18.3-2 - fixed distcc ctrl-c breaking to be more responsive
         - distccd now won't shut down until the parent process
           receives a break signal
         - distccd acceptor name changed
         - errno and h_errno are now threadsafe
           (requires bsdsocket.library 4.275 or higher)
         - updated to use clib2 from CVS dated 2005-10-26
         - fixed bug which ignored CTRL-C if the distccd daemon
           was run from AmigaShell
         - fixed loggers to be thread-safe
         - implemented recursion safeguard
         - changed distcc to redirect stderr to stdout by
           default instead of /dev/null

2.18.3-1 - ported distcc 2.18.3 package
         - various threading fixes required
         - modified to use blocking sockets with timeouts
         - added GUI monitor for AmigaOS
         - compiled with clib2 1.196
