GEMS-CLIENT(1) gems documentation GEMS-CLIENT(1)

NAME

gems-client - Show data transmitted by gems-server (1)

SYNOPSIS

gems-client [-i] host [port]
gems-client -h -v

DESCRIPTION

Connects to a computer running gems-server(1) to show in the local terminal the data transmitted, in real time.

OPTIONS

host
Hostname or IP address where the server is running.
port
TCP port used by the server. Default: 6666.
-i
Ignore server terminal size. If this option is not supplied, gems-client disconnects itself whenever the local terminal is smaller than the terminal associated to the server.
-h
Show a short help message.
-v
Show version information.

FUNCTION KEYS

While gems-client is running, some keys have special functions:
q
Quit.
a
Enable/disable alarm blocking. When active, if the server transmits an alarm character ('\a'), the client ignores it, so the alarm does not play. This is specially useful when many clients are present in the same room, to avoid the annoying simultaneous beeps.
