NAME
       bnbot - Battle.net text-based chat bot client

SYNOPSIS
       bnbot [options] servername [serverport]

DESCRIPTION
       bnbot  is  a  simple program which will allow communication through the
       bot protocol of a Battle.net server from	the command line.  Input  from
       stdin  is sent to the server and	output from the	server is send to std-
       out.  The interface is so simple	that telnet(1)	could  be  used.   The
       only  complicating factor is that a control-C character must be sent to
       the server before any other input.

       It is hoped that	this program can be used  with	a  scripting  language
       like expect(1) to make creation of chat bots for	Unix easier.  To date,
       I don't know of anyone doing this.  This	program	may also  be  used  to
       test bot	login permissions for accounts.

       If  no servername is specified, localhost is assumed.  If no serverport
       is specified, 6112 is assumed.

OPTIONS
       -h --help --usage
	      Print usage information and exit.

       -v --version
	      Print its	version	number and exit.

NOTES
       The current version is available	with the bnetd distribution at:

	      http://www.bnetd.org/

BUGS
       The terminal settings are not consulted for keybindings.	 The following
       are assumed:

       ^H     delete the character to the left of the cursor

       ^J     accept current line

       ^M (return)
	      accept current line

       ^T     transpose	the last two characters

       ^W     delete word to the left of the cursor

       ^U     delete the whole input line

       ^[ (escape)
	      cancel the current input line

       ^? (delete)
	      delete the character to the left of the cursor
