       lambdamoo - server for an online multiuser virtual world


       lambdamoo  [-e]  [-l log-file] input-db-file output-db-file [+O|-O] [-a
       ip_address] [[-p] port]


       Lambdamoo is a server for a online multiuser  virtual  world,  or  MOO.
       The server reads in a lambdamoo database, accepts user connections, and
       when shut down, dumps the database to an output file.

       Lambdamoo contains a built in  programming  language,  but  documenting
       that  is  beyond  the  scope  of  this  man  page.  See  the  lambdamoo
       programmers manual  and  the  lambdamoo  user’s  manual  found  in  the
       lambdamoo-docs package for more information.


       -e     Start lambdamoo in emergency single-user mode. In this mode, you
              are automatically logged into the server as  wizard,  and  noone
              else can connect.

       -l log-file
              Output  logs  to  the specified log file, instead of to standard

              Lambdamoo database to load on startup.

              Lambdamoo database to checkpoint to and save to when the moo  is
              shut down.

       +O, -O Allow  and disallow the server to make outbound connections over
              the internet.

       -a ip_address
              Set the IP address you want the server to listen on.

       -p port
              Port to listen on for user connections. Default is 7777.


       It is highly recommended that you run  this  server  program  inside  a
       chroot jail, with user permissions other than root.  Debian has several
       packages  which  can  help  you  with  this.   To  have   this   server
       automatically started, stopped, and restarted at the appropriate times,
       such as system bootup, I recommend you install and use the  daemontools
