cereal - client program to attach to cereal session
cereal command [args]
cereal is the client program to attach to a running cereal session.
cereal takes various subcommands:
Attach to (take control of) cereal session SESSION. This puts
the user into a cereal console, provided by a command-restricted
screen session. To detach from an attached session, use "C-\
d". For help on other available commands, use "C-\ ?". Cereal
uses a limited instance of screen to provide the console. See
screen(1) for more info on the available commands. ‘a’ may be
used in place of ‘attach’.
follow [options] SESSION
Follow (watch, without being able to intervene) a cereal session
SESSION. The options are: -c [--cat] to cat log instead of
follow; -p [--path] to output just the path to the log file and
exit. ‘f’ may be used in place of ‘follow’.
List session(s). With no arguments, will list all sessions.
The leading three characters in the list indicate: whether the
session is running (+) or not (-) or in some unknown state (?),
whether the user can attach to the session (a) or not (-),
whether the user can follow the session (f) or not (-). If the
session state is unknown (?), it’s usually because the user
asking for information about the session can’t read the session
stat file. ‘l’ may be used in place of ‘list’.
help Output a brief usage summary. ‘h’ or ‘?’ may be used in place
Exit status is 0 if OK, 1 if minor problems, 2 if serious trouble.

If the invoking user does not have read and execute access to the
cereal session’s supervise directory, ‘cereal list’ may not always
indicate that session’s status accurately.
