       conquestsh - a Conquest shell for telnet players




       conquestsh  is  a very simple program that executes the curses conquest
       client, passing certain options, notably -t.  It is intended to be  the
       ’shell’  of  an  account  that  an operator has setup to support telnet
       users.  See the conquestd manpage  for  information  on  setting  up  a
       server  for  telnet access.  In general, you will never want to support
       telnet servers.  Users should use  an  appropriate  client.   I  run  a
       telnet  server here for the time being so that users can get a (curses)
       taste, but that may go away in the future.
