Bopher Tools is a small collection of simple shell scripts that:

- are written in pure Bash with no external dependencies;
- are written in pure Bash with no external dependencies (unless explicitly stated otherwise);
- are totally independent from each other (but can be combined in the true spirit of Unix philosophy);
- only accept input from stdin and only output their results into stdout;
- aim to ease your life when it comes to creating and publishing your own content in Gopherspace.

## `list2map.sh`

This tool, which probably is the smallest but the most sophisticated one in the entire collection, accepts the list of files and directories (possibly generated with `find` command) and generates, line by line, a portion of Gophermap based on their type (for this, it requires the external `file` command dependency), root directory name and hostname/port number optionally passed to the script on invocation. The tool automatically applies the following rules:

- only the basename part of the file/directory is used as the entry name/description;
- if the file is a directory (MIME type `inode/directory`), the generated selector will actually refer to the `index.map` file in that directory and the entry type will be 1;
- files (or directories) named `index.map` are not themselves included in the output;
- if the file's MIME type starts with `text`, the entry type will be set to 0, otherwise it will be set to 9.

Note that the tool itself doesn't do any filtering on input names or how they are presented. All filtering, if necessary, should be done on the `find` invocation step.

Example - build a Gophermap fragment from this repo's starting directory, excluding all dotfiles, using `.` as root and assuming we'll serve this map from `example.com:777`:
$ find . ! -path '.' ! -path '*/.*' | bash tools/list2map.sh . example.com 777
