dchub URI scheme
Posted: 31 Jan 2013, 21:06
The following is a URI scheme that I intend to submit to IETF for the inclusion as a standardized URI.
(last updated 2013-01-31)
Resource Identifier (RI) Scheme name: dchub
A client should connect to a server (hub) "host" with an optional port, which defaults to 411.
A client should queue a directory or file (according to the path) and attempt to download the directory or file from the specified user.
A user should always be followed by a path to a directory or file.
Connect to a server and optionally download a file from a user.
The executing system's encoding is used.
Applications/protocols that use this scheme name:
Used by various Direct Connect clients.
The path is a path in the user's shared files. The path does not reflect a system's underlying file system.
The user that is in the hub may not be the same user as when the URI was constructed. Likewise with the path.
