Re: Nmap Scripting Engine - last release candidate

Just a small thing I noticed, there's no newline after information about
the --script-updatedb flag.

"ATTACK SCRIPT SCAN:
  -sC: equivalent to --script=safe,intrusive
  --script=<lua scripts>: <lua scripts> is a coma separated list of dirs
  or scripts
  --script-trace: Show all data sent and received
  --script-updatedb: Update the script database. Only performed if -sC
  or --script was also given.OS DETECTION:
  -O: Enable OS detection (try 2nd generation w/fallback to 1st)
  -O2: Only use the new OS detection system (no fallback)
  -O1: Only use the old (1st generation) OS detection system
  --osscan-limit: Limit OS detection to promising targets
  --osscan-guess: Guess OS more aggressively

Hello List,
this may be the last release candidate of the NSE scripting language.  
If all goes as planned the next NSE is going to be part of the Nmap  
Core. This means that if you would like to make contributions which  
are going to have a greater impact on NSE now is the best time of  
all. I remember people planning to add a raw socket interface to NSE  
or buffered I/O, these would be projects which are definitely concerned.

The two highlights of this release are the thorough documentation (as  
anounced by Fyodor) and PCRE support for NSE scripts. Other than that  
lot of attention has been paid to stabilizing and streamlining the  
system. There have been slight changes in the API to make it more  
consistent, you might as well peek into the documentation for details.

As usual Nmap is distributed as gz and bzip2 packed tarballs, as a  
windows self installer and zip packed windows binaries. All of these  
can be found here: http://xover.mud.at/~diman/nmap/

NSE has been briefly tested on Linux, MacOSX ppc and Win32. If it  
doesn't work on your system, please contact me. If you have any  
criticism or suggetions you are very welcome to share them.

cheers
Diman
