NAME

       netris-sample-robot - sample robot for netris

SYNOPSIS

       netris-sample-robot [-l]

DESCRIPTION

       The  netris-sample-robot  is  a  sample  implementation  of  the  robot
       protocol. It plays quite well but isn't too hard  to  beat.  The  robot
       should be started from netris with the option -r to connect or wait for
       another player to join. You can also let two robots play  against  each
       other in that way, if you like.

OPTIONS

       -l     Writes  some  log  information  into the file log in the current
              working directory. If it can't it bails out.

EXAMPLES

       To start the netris-sample-robot waiting for  another  connection  with
       logfile use the following line:
              netris -w -r 'netris-sample-robot -l'

       You then just have to start netris somewhere  else  which  connects  to
       that robot.

BUGS

       One  known bug of the netris-sample-robot is that it hangs quite often.

       refrain  from  doing  so again. If you have an idea why this happens or
       know a solution how to fix it feel free to mail us.
