       grubby - very intelligent GGZ chat bot


       grubby [OPTIONS...]


       Grubby  is  a modular chat bot, which means this program behaves like a
       human.  Once logged into a GGZ server, you can tell  it  some  news  it
       shall  tell  others,  and  in  return it tells you what it has heard of
       lately.  Additionally, if you say a bad word, it  complains  about  it.
       You  can  even  rename  grubby  to  what  you  want.  Common  names are
       Highlander and  Keeper,  but  you  can  invent  your  own  ones.   More
       functionality  can  be  added  by  plugging  in  shared libraries, perl
       scripts, ruby gems, and whatnot.  From time to time it  is  recommended
       to invite grubby to play a game with you.


       -h, --help
              Display help menu and exit.

       -H, --host=HOSTNAME
              Host  to  connect  to. A GGZ server must be running on HOSTNAME.
              This overrides any setting from the default configuration  file.

       -d, --datadir=DATADIR
              Use  this directory as data directory. If not specified, DATADIR
              defaults to ~/.ggz.

       -n, --name=NAME
              Name with  which  grubby  interacts  with  other  players.  This
              overrides any setting from the default configuration file.

       -v, --version
              Display grubby’s version number and exit.


       Grubby accepts both public commands and owner commands. Please view the
       appropriate documentation in the ggz-docs package. In  particular,  the
       Grubby  Chatbot  Manual  contains information for grubby users, whereas
       the Grubby Chatbot Admin Manual tells grubby owners how to  tailor  the
       set of commands.


       Configure  grubby  using  the grubby-config perl script. Except for the
       first two values (name and owner), all other values can simply be taken
       from the default suggestions.

       Graphical  configuration  is possible using kgrubby, which is available
       as part of the ggz-kde-client package.


       ~/.ggz/grubby.rc - configuration file, may be produced by grubby-config
       or by kgrubby

       ~/.ggz/grubby/* - individual module files and player database
