NAME

       upstart-local-bridge - Bridge between Upstart and a local client socket connection.

SYNOPSIS

       upstart-local-bridge [OPTIONS]...

DESCRIPTION

       upstart-local-bridge  listens  on  a  local domain socket for name=value pairs and creates
       init(8) events for them.

       The local unix domain socket can be either named or abstract.

OPTIONS

       --any-user
              By default the bridge will only accept connections from clients running  under  the
              same user ID as the bridge itself. This option allows connections from any user.

       --daemon
              Detach and run in the background.

       --debug
              Enable debugging output.

       --event event
              Specify name of event to emit on receipt of a name=value pair.

       --help Show brief usage summary.

       --path path
              Specify  path  for local/abstract socket to listen on. If the first byte of path is
              an '@', the socket will be created as an abstract socket.

       --verbose
              Enable verbose output.

EVENT DETAILS

       The following environment variables are added automatically to the event  to  be  emitted,
       with the name=value pair being added as the last variable.

       ·   SOCKET_TYPE=unix

       ·   SOCKET_VARIANT=[named|abstract] Sub-type of socket.

       ·   CLIENT_UID=UID User ID of connected client.

       ·   CLIENT_GID=GID Group ID of connected client.

       ·   CLIENT_PID=PID Process ID of connected client.

       ·   SOCKET_PATH=PATH

EXAMPLES

       upstart-local-bridge --event=foo --path=/var/foo/bar
           Listen  on local socket /var/foo/bar and when a name=value pair is read, emit an event
           of the form:

           foo SOCKET_TYPE=unix SOCKET_VARIANT=named SOCKET_PATH=/var/foo/bar name=value

       upstart-local-bridge --event=bar --path=@/var/foo/bar
           Listen on abstract socket @/var/foo/bar and when a name=value pair is  read,  emit  an
           event of the form:

           bar SOCKET_TYPE=unix SOCKET_VARIANT=abstract SOCKET_PATH=@/var/foo/bar name=value

NOTES

       ·   If  a  named  local  socket  is  specified, all path elements except for the last must
           already exist before the bridge starts.

LIMITATIONS

       ·   Only a single client connection is serviced at any one time.
