ggz-txt - Console-based core client for the GGZ Gaming Zone


ggz-txt [OPTIONS...] [URI]


This program allows one to use the GGZ without having a graphics facility like the X11 window system. It provides all the functionality which is needed to chat, change rooms, view the message of the day (MOTD), and so on, and even supports games depending on where it runs.

When starting ggz-txt, simply type "/connect", optionally followed by the server host name if not running at localhost. Alternatively, the connection URI can be given as a command line argument in the format ggz://user@host:port or a variant thereof, even simply host.

You can always type "/help" to get a list of all available commands. If support for readline has been compiled in, the arrow keys can be used to navigate through former commands. Some commands can automatically be executed on program launch, allowing sequences such as identifying and changing rooms automatically.

Further information is available in the Manual for ggz-txt, which is contained in the ggz-docs package.
