03 List of Golf Archives




Description

This article is from the Golf FAQ, by marcelo@nntpserver.Princeton.EDU (Marcelo A. Gallardo) with numerous contributions by others.

03 List of Golf Archives


An archive consisting of information related to golf is being kept on
dunkin.Princeton.EDU.

The "articles" deal with things ranging from course information and
desciptions, to club making and design, and even a few GIFs of famous
courses.

The files in this archive are available by ftpmail server, anonymous
FTP, and WWW on dunkin.Princeton.EDU.

If there is any information you would like to see placed in the
archives, either drop them off via Anonymous FTP on
dunkin.Princeton.EDU, or send them via mail to
marcelo@dunkin.Princeton.EDU.

FTPMail Server
++++++++++++++

There lives an ftpmail server that will get files from the archive and
mail them to you. If you send mail to ftpmail@dunkin.Princeton.EDU,
with the commands in the body of the message, you should receive the
files via mail within a few days (usually the same day).

FTPMail works almost like anonymous ftp, except that commands are sent
via email, and the files are returned via email. ALL commands should be
put in the message BODY and NOT in the headers.

So for example if you wanted the clubdesn.0 article, you would send
mail to ftpmail@dunkin.Princeton.EDU with a line in the body which
looks like this...

open dunkin.Princeton.EDU
cd pub/golf/clubmaking
get clubdesn.0
quit

You can retrieve several files at the same time by adding the commands
on separate lines like so...

open dunkin.Princeton.EDU
cd pub/golf
get golf.faq
cd pub/golf/clubmaking
get clubdesn.0
get clubdesn.1
cd pub/golf/misc
get course.template
cd pub/golf/misc/course.info
get myrtle.summary
quit

or for the same set of files...

open dunkin.Princeton.EDU
get pub/golf/golf.faq
get pub/golf/clubmaking/clubdesn.0
get pub/golf/clubmaking/clubdesn.1
get pub/golf/misc/course.template
get pub/golf/misc/course.info/myrtle.summary
quit

or for the indexes...

open dunkin.Princeton.EDU
get pub/golf/README
get pub/golf/clubmaking/README
get pub/golf/clubmaking/Clubmakers/README
get pub/golf/misc/README
get pub/golf/misc/Ads/README
get pub/golf/misc/course.info/README
quit

If you need any more help, you can send a message to the mail server (
ftpmail@dunkin.Princeton.EDU) with the message of "help" (without the
quotes), or send mail to marcelo@dunkin.Princeton.EDU.

Anonymous FTP
+++++++++++++

The golf archive is also accessible via anonymous FTP on
dunkin.Princeton.EDU (128.112.232.87).

For those of you unfamiliar with anonymous ftp, here is an anonymous
ftp session to help guide you. I recommend looking through the
news.answers and news.announce.newusers news groups for further
information.
