netris-sample-robot - sample robot for netris

netris-sample-robot(6) Netris Sample Robot netris-sample-robot(6)

NAME

netris-sample-robot - sample robot for netris

SYNOPSIS

netris-sample-robot [-l]

DESCRIPTION

The netris-sample-robot is a sample implementation of the robot protocol. It plays quite well but isn't too hard to beat. The robot should be started from netris with the option -r to connect or wait for another player to join. You can also let two robots play against each other in that way, if you like.
 

OPTIONS

-l
Writes some log information into the file log in the current working directory. If it can't it bails out.
 

EXAMPLES

To start the netris-sample-robot waiting for another connection with logfile use the following line:
netris -w -r 'netris-sample-robot -l'
You then just have to start netris somewhere else which connects to that robot.
 

SEE ALSO
