ixpc - ixp client


ixpc [-a address] action file
ixpc -v


ixpc is a client to access a 9P file server from the command line or from shell scripts.
It can be used to configure wmii(1).

-a address
Lets you specify the address to which ixpc will establish a connection. If this
option is not supplied, and the environment variable IXP_ADDRESS is set, ixpc will
use this value as its address. Currently, the address can only be a unix socket
file or a tcp socket. The syntax for address is taken (along with many other
profound ideas) from the Plan 9 operating system and has the form
unix!/path/to/socket for unix socket files, and tcp!hostname!port for tcp sockets.

-v Prints version information to stdout, then exits.

The syntax of the actions is as follows:

write Writes the supplied data from the standard input to file, overwriting any previous
data. The data to be written is arbitrary and only gains meaning (and
restrictions) when it is interpreted by wmiiwm(1). See EXAMPLES below.

xwrite The same as write, but the data is taken from subsequent arguments, rather than the
standard input.

create Creates file or directory. If the file exists, nothing is done.

ls Lists files and directories.

read Reads file or directory contents.

remove Removes file or directory tree.


See above.


ixpc ls /
This prints the root directory of the wmii filesystem, if IXP_ADDRESS is set to the
address of wmii. For more information about the contents of this filesystem, see

ixpc xwrite /ctl quit
Write 'quit' to the main control file of the wmii filesystem, effectively leaving

ixpc write /keys < keys.txt
Replace the contents of /keys with the contents of keys.txt

Use ixpc online using onworks.net services
