Great to hear and thanks for testing! I have pushed a new version of UHC Tools now with this version of aget.

Yay, I am also adjusting my amiga guide aminet frontend script to use UHC variables and search engine

I had this nutty idea of aget as a generic download «daemon», running in the background, with arexx port... hm

Is this amiga guide frontend available for test somewhere?

Forgive me for my lack of greater arexx experience. How would the interface for such a port look? A simple example to illustrate how to use it would be great.

To keep asking further - what current problem(s) would be easier to solve/implement if this download daemon was available and what software would be able to make good use of it?

(edit):
Forgot to say that from a performance perspective, it would not be a big difference running it as a daemon as the aget executable is quite small (<13kB). Most of the UHC Tools shell commands are PURE and can be residented, however aget currently is not. This could be addressed if startup time still is a concern.

I put it on gitlab.com this morning...

https://gitlab.com/kowoba/amiga-scripts

it is not "pure amiga" though, it uses rsh to linux system (all my Amiga systems has Raspberry Pi zeros attached as gateways/proxies etc).

An arexx port for aget could be used to ask it for the status of a download, progress etc. so one could make progress bars in DOpus etc.

So we just changed from CET to CEST... and two questions pop up:
* sntp doesn't recognize CEST
* it wants TZONE to be UTC-2, but... surely it is UTC+2??

I based the TZONE env variable handling on the specification in the SetDST documentation.

For TZONE, + is west of UTC and - is east and you first specify your timezone name with offset followed by optional daylight saving zone name and offset.

For example, here in Sweden SetDST would now set TZONE to "CET-1CEST". CET is the timezone, -1 its offset (1h east) from UTC and CEST the name of the daylight saving zone. If no offset is specified for the daylight saving, it defaults to -1, so combined the total offset becomes -2 hours.

Before the shift this Saturday->Sunday, TZONE was just "CET-1" - no daylight saving zone.

Btw, sntp doesn't care about the names of the time zone or daylight saving zone name, it only cares about whether they are present or not and the offsets.

Ah, yes, I see. When used together with SetDST everything works just dandy. I had forgotten about SetDST and was attempting to set TZONE based on output from unix "date +%z". Thanks!
