NAME
     mgpnet -- MagicPoint Netserver (provide MagicPoint	presentation over the
     net)

SYNOPSIS
     mgpnet [arguments to mgp]

DESCRIPTION
     mgpnet is a small http server to be executed on the presenter's notebook
     computer.	It lets	audience read MagicPoint presentation foils on her
     notebook computers, over the net.

     When a presenter performs a presentation, she should invoke mgpnet	in-
     stead of mgp, with	the same argument.  mgpnet will	become an http server
     running on	tcp port 9999 (by default), and	invokes	mgp as a child
     process.  By accessing URL	http://hostname:9999/, audience	will be	able
     to	read the MagicPoint window currently displayed on the presenter's
     notebook.	The webpage provided by	mgpnet is designed in "client pull"
     manner; audience's	notebook will reload the page, several times a minute.

     If	no option is specified,	mgpnet will print the URL to be	accessed by
     the audience to the standard output.  This	is useful for indicating the
     URL to be accessed	on the presentation, like:

     %filter "mgpnet"
     %endfilter

TODO
     Be	network	conscious.  Current implementation is too naive	about CPU/net-
     work usage.  Presenter's notebook may be overloaded if there's too	many
     audiences.

SEE ALSO
     mgp(1), xwintoppm(1).

HISTORY
     mgpnet was	created	by Jun-ichiro itojun Itoh <itojun@itojun.org>, on the
     day before	the newyear's eve, 1997.
