Plan9-related tools for Unix-like operating systems.

  • 9pex - share a directory over stdin/stdout, can be used with socat/inetd
  • 9gc - a very simple stdin/stdout 9gridchan client

This is all WIP still. 9pex is working in read-only mode so far but lacks proper auth, async IO, some more error control etc.

To build static binaries with musl:

CC=musl-gcc CFLAGS="-Os -s -g0 -static" ./build.sh


We can do better.


  • 9pex: to allow "escaping the root" by following symlinks you have to pass -e option
  • 9pex: chrooting with musl makes realpath not work as it requires /proc to be mounted, get rid of realpath?
  • 9gc: you can run it in termux on Android like so: rlwrap -a'XXXXXXwth' -s 0 -t dumb 9gc -e NICKNAME
