9PCON(8)							      9PCON(8)

       9pcon - 9P to text translator

       aux/9pcon [ -cn ] [ -m msize ] service

       9pcon  provides	a  textual  interface  to  service,  a conventional 9P
       server.	By default, 9pcon interprets service as a file to  be  opened.
       The -c flag causes 9pcon to interpret service as a command to run which
       will carry out a (binary) 9P conversation over file descriptors	0  and
       1.   The -n flag causes 9pcon to interpret service as a network address
       to dial.

       Once the connection is established, 9pcon  prints  R-messages  as  they
       arrive from the server, and sends T-messages as they are typed on stan‐
       dard input.  There is no prompt.	 Lines beginning with #	 are  ignored.
       The syntax for T-messages is one of:

	      Tversion msize version
	      Tauth afid uname aname
	      Tattach fid afid uname aname
	      Twalk fid newfid wname...
	      Topen fid mode
	      Tcreate fid name perm mode
	      Tread fid offset count
	      Twrite fid offset data
	      Tclunk fid
	      Tremove fid
	      Tstat fid
	      Twstat fid name uid gid mode mtime length
	      Tflush oldtag

       See  intro(5) for a description of the fields in each message.  For the
       most part, the syntax mirrors the description of the messages  in  sec‐
       tion  5.	  The exceptions are that the tags on the T-messages are added
       automatically; Twalk's nwname count is  inferred	 from  the  number  of
       wnames given; and Twstat's dir is in expanded form rather than being an
       opaque byte sequence.  Note that since commands are  parsed  with  tok‐
       enize  (see  getfields(2)), it is easy to pass empty strings for absent
       name, uid, and gid fields.  To ease specifying default integer  fields,
       the  Twstat  message recognizes ~0 in the mode, mtime, and length argu‐
       ments.  For example,
	   Twstat 101 '' '' sys ~0 ~0 ~0
       sends a wstat message that attempts to change the group	id  associated
       with fid 101.



       There should be a flag to wait for responses, to facilitate scripting.
