zkfingerd 2.0.13

zkfingerd is a replacement for standard finger.
zkfingerd is a relatively simple finger server designed to give the sysadmin complete control over what it looks like and what it does. Variable substitution allows you to make the output look however you want it to look. Script execution allows you to define targets which will execute programs, as well as enabling you to allow system users to write their own program to be executed when they are fingered. Complete configurability -- zkfingerd aims to give you completely control over what it does and when. Basic HTTP support, including a workaround that detects the differences between browsers that send the "//" in a finger URL as part of the query and those that don't. Public file areas allow users to make the contents of directories available to anyone who asks wants.
