File Retrieval Service
This is the Juggling Information Service's File Retrieval Service,
provided as a service to all jugglers who would like to have access to
the JIS, but cannot reach it via the WWW.
Note: For those with FTP capability, just visit:
You can use E-mail to retrieve files from the Juggling Information
Service. To use any of the commands that make up this service, send
an E-mail message to email@example.com. The Subject of the
message is ignored.
In the body, you may use commands as in the following examples:
# lines starting with a # are ignored
# white space at the beginning and ends of lines is ignored
# set your return E-mail address, usually not needed
# get the instructions
# fetch a handy Unix program for interacting with this service
# retrieve the index of all available files
# retrieve the indexes to the pictures and animations and help files
# retrieve a Popovitch picture, a Rastelli film, and JugglePro 3.6
# WARNING: File names are case sensitive.
# Do *not* alter upper/lower case.
# retrieve the list of U.S and Canada club meetings.

The PATH command sets your return E-mail address, and if used,
it must be the first command of your message. By default, the
server will attempt to reply to your mail by looking at the
header of the received message, like "reply" does in most
mailers. If you use this command, however, it will instead
send mail to the given address. For most people, the PATH
command is not needed.
Example: PATH firstname.lastname@example.org
Sends this text.
Sends a copy of a Unix shell program that makes it even easier
to retrieve files and the index of available files from the JIS,
using a simple command line interface that does the mailing for
you. It also may be used to conveniently unpack the files
returned from the service. The unpacking function requires the
presence of the perl command.
Sends an annotated index of all of the JIS files that are
available for retrieval.
Sends the specified file back via return E-mail. You may
retrieve as many files as you like, by using a separate SEND
command for each. Binary, text and HyperText files can all be
WARNING: File names are case sensitive.
Do not alter upper/lower case.
Binary files will be uuencoded. You will need the uudecode
program at your site to reproduce these files. Text files will
be returned as is.
HyperText files will include footnotes at the site of each link
to another object. The addresses of the objects pointed to
will appear in the footnotes at the bottom of the page. Those
noted with a SEND command are local to the JIS, and may be
retrieved with SEND requests to the FILE-SERVICE. Remote
files not at the JIS cannot be retrieved at this time with this

Example: SEND help/numbers/5-balls.html
If you're on a Unix machine, this is a very handy shell program to
allow you to retrieve files and fetch the index of available files even
more easily. Just download it, and it's ready to use.
You may retrieve a copy through this service by sending the PROG
