Amiga remote launching

I've been working with TBL on an Amiga production recently. Hardly anyone develops on the real Amiga hardware anymore. A modern PC is nice to develop on, but it's a pain to copy over the program and related test files for every test run.

Well, no more copying! Taking from console development tools from I've crafted a remote command launcher for the Amiga that can run arbitrary programs over a TCP/IP link and channel back file I/O too. You even get the standard output back locally, it's cross-development bliss :)

More details in the Aminet release where you can download the programs for Win32 and Amiga.
