The guy explaining gopher to me at sdf (he listed some advantages, it
takes up less space and is simpler and requires no html tags) offered, if
we have things like grep and sed, to make a small gopher script that would
work with BL so I could post my files in gopher space. He could not find
any such script on the web and was happy to get a copy of this posting.
He seems interested in knowing more about basiclinux too, so I suggested
he download it to test on.

I just realized this requires 'echo', and found it in BL3 busybox but not
BL2 busybox. I will warn him about BL2.
