       wwwoffle-tools - tools to manage wwwoffle cache


       wwwoffle-ls (<dir>/<subdir> | <protocol>://<host> | <URL>)
       wwwoffle-mv (<dir1>/<subdir1> | <protocol1>://<host1>)
                   (<dir2>/<subdir2> | <protocol2>://<host2>)
       wwwoffle-rm <URL>

       wwwoffle-gzip ( <dir>/<subdir> | <protocol>://<host> ) ...


       These  eight  commands can be used from the command line to inspect the
       wwwoffle cache, to move the cached  pages  around  and  to  remove  the
       cached  pages from the cache. Using the wwwoffle HTML interface is much
       better and can be done even by normal users.

              list the files in the directory in the style of  ’ls  -l’.   For
              example  use  ’wwwoffle-ls  http/foo’ to list the URLs cached in
              the directory http/foo.

              To rename a  host  directory  in  the  spool  to  another  name.
              Because  the  URL  is  encoded in the filename just renaming the
              directory will not work.  Instead of ’mv http/foo http/bar’  use
              ’wwwoffle-mv http/foo http/bar’.

              Delete the URL that is specified on the command line.  To delete
              all URLs from a host it is easier to use ’rm -r  http/foo’  than
              using this.

              Read  data  directly  from  the  cache  for the URL named on the
              command line and output it on stdout.

              If --removeheader is used, the HTTP header will be  removed  for

              Write  data  directly  to  the  cache  for  the URL named on the
              command line from stdin.  Note this requires a HTTP header to be
              included first or browsers may get confused.

                   (echo "HTTP/1.0 200 OK";
                    echo "Content-Type: text/html";
                    echo "" ; cat bar.html ) |

              If  --addheader  is used, the above header will be generated for
              you, so that the data can be redirected without the need for the
              echoes above.

              If  a different header is required, it will have to be generated
              externally as in the example above.

              This should only be done as the  user  "proxy",  else  the  file
              can’t  be  written (in case of a normal user), or the file can’t
              be removed later (in case of doing this as root).

              Print WWWOFFLE’s encoding of the submitted URL. This  is  useful
              for scripts working on the WWWOFFLE cache.

              Check the cache for inconsistent filenames and fix them.

       wwwoffle-gzip, wwwoffle-gunzip
              Compress or uncompress the cached copy of the specified URLs.
