NAME

       pioneers - network implementation of Settlers of Catan

SYNOPSIS

       pioneers  [ -s server ] [ --server server ] [ -p port ] [ --port port ]
       [ -n name ] [ --name name ]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the pioneers command.

       Pioneers is an implementation of the popular,  award-winning  "Settlers
       of  Catan"  board  game  for  the GNOME desktop environment.  It uses a
       client/server model  for  networked  play  of  between  two  and  eight
       players.   You  will  need  to  connect  to  a  machine  running either
       pioneers-server-gtk or pioneers-server-console to play.  An AI  client,
       pioneersai, is also available.

OPTIONS

       Pioneers  accepts  the standard GTK+/GNOME commandline options, and the
       following options:

       -s, --server server
              Hostname of the server

       -p, --port port
              Portname of the server

       -n, --name name
              Name of the player

       When the options are provided, the client automatically quits when  the
       connection is broken.

ENVIRONMENT

       The  default  settings can be influenced with the following environment
       variable:

       PIONEERS_META_SERVER
              The hostname of the meta-server.  If it is not set, the  default
              meta-server will be used.

DEVELOPERS AND TRANSLATORS

       With   the  commandline  option  --language  code  the  values  of  the
       environment variables LANGUAGE and LC_ALL can be  overriden.  The  code
       should be one of the 2-letter language code pioneers understands.
