NAME
       gopherd - the GoFish gopher server

SYNOPSIS
       gopherd [-dp] [-v] [config_file]

DESCRIPTION
       GoFish is a very	simple gopher server. It is designed with security and
       low resource usage in mind. GoFish uses a single	process	 that  handles
       all the connections. This provides low resource usage, good latency (no
       context switches), and good scalability.

       GoFish runs in a	chroot(2) environment. This means that GoFish can only
       serve  files from the root directory or below. While GoFish must	run at
       root privilege to be able to use	port 70, it drops  to  a  normal  user
       while accessing files.

OPTIONS
       -d     daemon mode

       -p     preprocess cache

       -v     increase verbosity

FILES
       /etc/gofish.conf

       gofish(5), dotcache(5), mkcache(1), Internet RFC	1436
