Bug#140848: ITP: rocks -- Make network sockets reliable in a transparent way

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2002-04-02
Severity: wishlist

  Version         : 2.1

  Description     : Make network sockets reliable in a transparent way

Rocks protect sockets-based applications from network failures,
particularly failures common to mobile computing, including:

 - Link failures (e.g., unexpected modem disconnection);
 - IP address changes (e.g., laptop movement, DHCP lease expiry);
 - Extended periods of disconnection (e.g., laptop suspension).

Rock-enabled programs continue to run after any of these events; their
broken connections recover automatically, without loss of in-flight
data, when connectivity returns. Rocks work transparently with most
applications, including SSH clients, X window applications, and network
service daemons.

You can find the package at ftp://sliepen.warande.net/pub/rocks/. I'd
like to hear if this is the best way to package it.
