Node:Motivation, Previous:Obtaining Yafc, Up:Overview


Yafc was created because I needed a good ftp client. The standard BSD ftp client lacks tab completion, something I've become used to and can't live without. Of course, both Lftp and NcFtp has tab completion, but not good enough for me :-). Also, I needed a client that understood Kerberos4 authentication, because that's the security system used a KTH (The Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, where I am studying.)

But perhaps most important, I needed a fun project to work on :-)
