slave(1)                                                 slave(1)



NAME
       slave  -  a  semi-interactive  interactive command for the
       dirty work

SYNOPSIS
       slave [ command ]
       slave -f

DESCRIPTION
       The purpose of the slave command is to do all those  small
       things  around  the computer that one never finds the time
       for.

       One typical use for the slave command  is  to  change  the
       toner  in one's laser printer. The interface for the slave
       command is kept simple, mainly to keep down the complexity
       of the internal parser.

THE OPTION
       -f     Send  a rapid succession of SIHUPs to slave, mainly
              used when one needs to blow off a little steam.

THE COMMANDS
       Almost any phrase in pidgin English is acceptable input to
       the  slave program, but care should be taken to keep gram­
       matical structure on an easy level, so not to confuse  the
       poor program.

BUGS
       This  program  violates  many  standards  and ethics, most
       notably the UN's Human Rights (as if they were  extendable
       to programs...)

AUTHOR
       This  man  page is written by Ingvar Mattsson, 1996, in an
       effort to extend the alt.sysadmin.recovery  collection  of
       man pages.
