       burgerspace-server   -   UDP   server  for  the  networked  version  of




       burgerspace-server  is  a  server   that   accepts   connections   from
       BurgerSpace  clients  to  allow two players to compete with each other.
       One player controls the chef and the  other  controls  the  egg.  Other
       clients can connect as spectators.

       burgerspace-server  should  be  started in a terminal. To terminate it,
       give the Ctrl-C sequence or use the kill(1) command with  the  server’s
       process ID as the argument.

       The  connections use the UDP protocol. The --port option can be used to
       specify a non-default listening port (see below).

       After the server has started, the user who wants to  control  the  chef
       must start the client with this command:

       burgerspace --chef

       Use  the  appropriate  hostname  or  IP  address  as  the  argument for
       --server.  The user who wants to control the egg must give the  --enemy
       option  instead  of  --chef.   The  --port  option  can be added to the
       burgerspace command-line to specify the server port, if the server  was
       started with a non-default UDP listening port.


       --help display a help page and exit

              display version information and exit

              start game at level N.  Default is 1.  N must be at least 1.

              UDP  port  number  on  which the server must listen for incoming
              clients.  The default is 49152.
