NAME

conqoper - Conquest Operator (CO) program.  

SYNOPSIS

conqoper [OPTIONS]...  

DESCRIPTION

conqoper is a program used to monitor and configure a conquest game. It is a curses based application that must be run on the same host your server is running on. It allows suitably privileged individuals to view and modify various characteristics of the game, as well as perform common administrative tasks.

In order to run conqoper, you must be a member of the conquest group (in /etc/groups), or you must be the root user.

conqoper supports a few non-interactive options listed below. When any of these options are specified, conqoper will perform the requested action and exit. When no options are specified, conqoper will run in an interactive mode.  

OPTIONS

-C
Rebuild the system wide conquestrc file.
-D
Disable the game. Clients that connect, will be told that the game is closed after they have authenticated to the server. If the authenticating user is marked with the 'Play when closed flag', that user will be allowed into the game anyway. You can edit these flags by selecting (e)dit user at the conqoper main menu.
-E
Enable the game.
-I <what>
Initialize what where what is: e - everything, g - game, l - lockwords, m - messages, p - planets, r - robots, s - ships, u - universe, and z - zero out everything. Note, when zeroing out everything, the common block cannot be used to play. You must still initialize everything (and enable the game).

When either the universe or everything is initialized, the game will be set to disabled by default. You must manually enable the game from the conqoper main menu, or by using the -E option.
