Spring is a free Real Time Strategy (RTS) game engine, originally
designed to play Total Annihilation (© 1997 Cavedog) content. It has
since evolved into a general RTS engine, capable of running various
kind of games (mods).
It is mainly designed around online multiplayer games but can also be
played in single-player mode against AIs.
This is the dedicated, GUI-less server for hosting multiplayer games.
You need to feed it a start script in order to have it host a game.
Start script are generated by lobby clients (SpringLobby) or
autho-hosts (Spads, Springie). This is the most leight-weight version
of the engine, which basically only redirects network traffic, while
spring-headless still runs a full blown simulation of the game. For
