Helpful tool - generate ed2k URIs

Post by mirabile » Tue Mar 30, 2004 7:33 pm

I've written a useful utility for
generating "ed2k" style URIs suitable
for ed2kwatch and anidb (tested).

This is a shell script, written in
Korn shell (might run on the GNU
bash, too), tested on a MirOS box
(http://mirbsd.de/); it needs printf
and md4 executables, both of which
are available from MirOS CVSweb, too.
There is a port of the mirbsdksh for
GNU systems (source code at
http://mirbsd.bsdadvocacy.org/MirOS/dis ... .2.cpio.gz but do
not use Makefile but BuildGNU.sh).

The utility itself is at
https://mirbsd.bsdadvocacy.org:8890/cvs ... ts/gened2k and BSD-style licenced, so
usage should not be a problem.

Have fun with that ;-)

(md4 is at /cvs.cgi/src/bin/md5/ and
printf is at /cvs.cgi/src/usr.bin/printf/ for
those who need it)

Please direct comments for that file
to <miros-discuss@66h.42h.de>; I
don't use this forum (yet).
Thanks/Arigatou.

Argh, should have been ed2kdump, obviously.

Sorry for replying to myself, I'm sleepy ;-)

Nice work, but I should add that there already are tools like this that will work on any platform with support for Python scripts...
