[Freeipmi-devel] about FISH

In reading FISH source codes,  I am puzzled by the commands like
"eval","load","toggle","pon","poff" in file interpreter.c.

Can anyone help me explain the commands' semantic?

A step further, is there a document describing the FISH design and

Thanks very much in advance!

Hi Robin,
I will take the responsibility to work with Intel to get a new SDR

| Are there IPMI Power (ipmipower) source code?
| if yes, where can I find it?
| Thanks,
| Ning Sun

It is part of current CVS tree and will be available from Aplha-6
onwards. Albert Chu is currently maintaining "ipmipower", You may be
able to get separate source tarballs for previous releases directly
from him.

If not, there is also an UNMAINTAINED old version at
