  • Alternate CGI link connector in Rust now available

    Posted on March 6, 2023 by Jon Jensen

    For anyone wanting to try an alternative to the classic compiled vlink and tlink CGI programs written in C, I made available my equivalent new Rust version called rust_link.

    It is functionally almost identical to the other implementations, but has Rust’s strong memory-safety guarantees and nice modern language features for the developer. And was a fun little project!

    The other link programs are fine, so no need to change them if they’re working for you. But in any case you may enjoy reading my blog post about rust_link for Interchange. It details the Interchange link protocol and explains what the link programs do.
