conqstrat [-v] [-d] [-U] [-o file]
This manual page documents briefly the conqstrat command.
conqstrat is a utility which reads rules from stdin to update Robot strategy tables. It's normal use is to update the common block (the game's current 'state') with a 'compiled' robot AI state, defined by a file such as conqrule.
If you want to modify the robot's AI, you can do so and use conqstrat to either update the common block (running game) with the new AI directly, or generate a conqdata.h file that can be compiled into Conquest and used as the default when the universe is initialized.
conquest (6), conqai (6), conqoper (6).
See the conqrule and conqrule.easy files for two robot strategies supplied in the conquest distribution, and installed in <install_prefix>/share/doc/conquest/. conqrule is the original AI (with minor fixes) supplied in the original VAX/VMS conquest distribution. It is also the default AI compiled into Conquest. conqrule.easy is an AI that is a bit easier on new players :) You can install it in an initialized game with conqstrat -U <conqrule.easy.
