       infond - Program bugs to compete for food and survival


       infond [-d]


       This manual page documents briefly the infond command.

       infond  is  the  server  for  the  infon  game.   Infon is a game which
       simulates the live of simple bugs who eat, propagate,  eat  each  other
       and  evolve.  The  players  can not control the bugs directly but write
       their "intelligence" in the simple script language lua and upload it to
       the game using a plain telnet connection. The code can then be modified
       even while the game is running.

       The server will be accessible on port 1234 for telnet clients  as  well
       as for graphical clients, such as infon(6).

       It can be configured by editing the file /etc/infond.lua.


       -d     Runs the program daemonized. Requires root.
