cereal - client program to attach to cereal session
cereal command [args]
is the client program to attach to a running cereal session.
takes various subcommands:
- attach SESSION
- 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
- 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]...
- 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'.
- Output a brief usage summary. `h' or `?' may be used in
place of `help'.
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.
