As I've written above I'm now rewriting the whole program, and I hope to finish this in December. Look at the Usenet group comp.os.linux.announce for my posting.
The new version will include the following features :
Rewritten by using an Object Oriented Parser Generator
Include awk & ingres as local servers for Linux
Backup store and forward as a model for distributed transactions
Some example applications
Hopefully some documentation (Real programmers don't write docs, they write programs. The code was hard to write it should be hard to read.) But, I've expanded the parser generator to produce manual pages for each parser it produces. That's a start.
I'm considering adding a RFC on my transaction monitor so I can find out what features should be added to the rd version
If you are in Germany, Onyx can be found on the ftp sites wowbagger.pc-labor.uni-bremen.de or olis.north.de. Onyx has also been posted to alt.sources on Usenet. Otherwise, your best bet is to use archive to locate a copy.
Michael Kraehe lives in the back woods of Germany and names the machines in his network as would an old anarchist so will find machines with names like durruti and kropotkin. His ideal computer would be a palmtop with a 17" display, Ethernet and SCSI so he could pack it on his 12 year old SR500 motorbike along with his dog.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
