Slightly OT but since I'm going to run this on FreeBSD 7 I figured I'd ask here ..

I have an application where data arrives in what is effectively continuous stream (actually NMEA messages from an AIS receiver) and I'd like to have a server where an arbitrary number of clients can connect to a tcp port and receive a copy of the stream. I could probably write this in perl without too much work but somebody has to have done something similar already - does anybody know of code that does this? (and yes I know sending the messages as individual udp packets would be easier - I'm already doing that internally but it doesn't work for opening up the data stream to the public).

P.S. for those who are interested AIS data contains info about large ships at sea - you can see live SF bay data on a map here
