SingleShare is an AppleShare server which, unlike AppleShare, does not need a dedicated Macintosh to run, yet, unlike TOPS, adheres to Apple's protocol standards.
This documentation describes the second release version of SingleShare, version 0.9b16. Version 1.0 was originally planned for System 7; however, Apple has announced its FileShare server which is expected to be better than anything I can do here, so SingleShare's future is unknown. The current version will continue to be supported since mot everyone will be able to use System 7.
SingleShare exists because I got annoyed with AppleShare (for needing a dedicated Mac) and TOPS (for using a proprietary protocol, and for being intentionally slow). Moreover, I wanted to know how hard it could possibly be to write an AppleShare and MultiFinder compatible server, so I just did it. This approach is not generally recommended.
