ZFTP is a macro-extensible file transfer program which supports the transfer of formatted, unformatted and ZEBRA RZ files (CMZ, HBOOK, etc.). It provides a common interface on all systems and avoids the problems of file format conversion that occur when transferring CERNLIB files between different architectures.
Except for the special treatment of CERNLIB files and use of a different port, zftp is very similar to an FTP client. Unless you are already familiar with this program, it will almost certainly be useless to you.
Notes on zftp: -------------- This is the client program for the ZEBRA FTP (zftp) protocol of CERNLIB. Like other FTP-type programs, the ZFTP protocol transmits passwords in cleartext. It would therefore be wise to use zftp only within a closed LAN with trusted users. To connect to a remote host, the host must be running the zserv daemon (for Debian, part of the pawserv package) from inetd. Se more»
cernlib (2006.dfsg.2-7) experimental; urgency=low The default FORTRAN compiler on Debian is now gfortran, not g77. In this Debian release of cernlib, CERN libraries have been built with the new gfortran compiler. For the moment, for backwards compatibility it is possible to install gfortran-based and g77-based CERN library runtime packages in parallel. The final vers more»
