       alevtd - webserver for videotext pages

       alevtd [ options ]

       alevtd  is  http	 daemon which serves videotext pages as HTML.  Tune in
       some station with a utility like v4lctl or some TV  application.	  Then
       start it and point your browser to http://localhost:5654/

       Pages   may   be	  requested   either  in  HTML	format	(http://local‐
       host:5654/<page>/ or http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.html) or in
       ASCII  text  format (http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.txt).  Sub‐
       page "00" can be used for pages without subpages.

       -h     print a short help text and the default values for all options.

       -v dev set vbi device (default: /dev/vbi).

       -d     enable debug output.

       -s     Write a start/stop notice and  serious  errors  to  the  syslog.
	      Specify  this  option twice to get a verbose log (additional log
	      events like dropped connections).

       -t sec set network timeout to >sec< seconds.

       -c n   set the number of allowed parallel connections to >n<.  This  is
	      a per-thread limit.

       -p port
	      listen on port >port< for incoming connections.  Default 5654.

       -n hostname
	      set the hostname which the server should use (required for redi‐

       -i ip  bind to IP-address >ip<.

       -l log log all requests to  the	logfile	 >log<	(common	 log  format).
	      Using  "-" as filename makes alevtd print the access log to std‐
	      out, which is only useful	 together  with	 the  -F  switch  (see

       -L log same  as	above, but additional flush every line.	 Useful if you
	      want monitor the logfile with tail -f.

       -u user
	      set uid to >user< (after binding to the tcp port).  This	option
	      is allowed for root only.

       -g group
	      set gid to >group< (after binding to the tcp port).  This option
	      is allowed for root only.

       -F     don't run as daemon.  alevtd will not fork into background,  not
	      detach from terminal and report errors to stderr.

       -r     poll  tv	frequency,  clear vtx page cache if a frequency change
	      was detected.
