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.
