conqoper - Conquest Operator (CO) program.
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.
-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
-E Enable the game.
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.
