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.
