Bucktooth is one of the modern servers for Internet Gopher written by Cameron Kaiser. Instead of using the .link and .cap files found in the University of Minnesota gopherd, bucktooth uses the gophermap format.

Bucktooth is written in Perl and is started from inetd or xinetd.

Proxy support

Bucktooth can be called from a script as a proxy. This allows things like the gopher.floodgap.com HTTP to Gopher gateway to call its bucktooth server without opening a network connection. [1]
