NAME
       micro_inetd - simple network service spawner

SYNOPSIS
       micro_inetd port	program	[args ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Like  inetd,  this program listens on the net for requests and spawns a
       server to handle	them.  However,	it only	handles	one port and one  pro-
       gram.   The  intended  use is when you have a server that expects to be
       run by inetd, but you only want to run it temporarily and don't want to
       bother  with  putting  it  into	/etc/services  and /etc/inetd.conf and
       restarting inetd.  Instead, just	start up micro_inetd, and when	you're
       done just ^C it.

       Other limitations:

       *    Full  inetd	 lets  you  specify  the socket	type as	one of stream,
	    dgram,  raw,  rdm,	or  seqpacket;	 micro_inetd  only  implements
	    stream.

       *    Full  inetd	 lets you specify wait or nowait; micro_inetd only im-
	    plements nowait.

       *    Full inetd lets you	specify	a user-id to run the  server  as;  mi-
	    cro_inetd doesn't try to switch user-ids.
