Anarchie & Apple Guide

Send Article to a Friend

Anarchie & Apple Guide -- Peter Lewis <peter.lewis@info.curtin.edu.au> has done it again - released a significant update to Anarchie, his combination FTP and Archie client for MacTCP-based Internet connections. Anarchie 1.3.1 adds a number of useful new features, and takes the prize for being the first (or at least among the first) released non-Apple program that fully supports Apple Guide, Apple's new help system in System 7.5. Anarchie now supports the SITE INDEX command as well as SOCKS, a method of getting out through a firewall. Also, you no longer need worry about which Info-Mac and Umich mirror sites you use most often, because you can configure Anarchie to go to those sites in response to your pasting in a generic Info-Mac or Umich pathname. Anarchie is $10 shareware and is among the most useful Internet tools available for the Macintosh. [ACE]
