NAME
       c - genericised soft drink generator (ie	coffee,	coke etc)

SYNOPSIS
       c [-s[number]] [-m[type]] [-e] [-i] [-T]	[-S amount] [--other=drink]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents the  GNU  version  of	c.  c is a genericised
       soft  drinks  engine  designed to provide a  stream  of	 the   desired
       beverage	 on  the  standard  output.	By   default,  c makes coffee,
       white, no sugar.	 This is  a   historical  choice based on the  authors
       preferences.  This behaviour is controlled  by the options,  and	a wide
       range  of other drinks  are  possible.	Please	 note  that   not  all
       combinations make sense,	 in taste terms, but that parsing by c extends
       only to syntax. Experiment at your own risk.

OPTIONS
       -s[number]
	      Specifies	the  number of sugars  desired.	 If   this  option  is
	      omitted, none will be included.

	      Excessively  large  values  will	 result	in unpleasant side ef-
	      fects,  including	 rotting  teeth	and excess weight.

	      If this option is	specified with no parameter,  the  default  is
	      one.

       -m[type]
	      Determines  whether milk will  be	used or	not.  The default cor-
	      responds to the specification 'cold'.  cold - Normal, cold milk

	      hot Normal, hot milk

	      frth Frothed milk	(see -e	option for cappucino)

	      none No milk. Recommended	for those who have a deadline.

	      goat Use your imagination.

       -e     Espresso	option.	 High  pressure	 steam	is forced through fine
	      ground  dark  beans  for a stronger brew;	careful	 use of	the -S
	      option  is advised to avoid shaky	hands and  heart  palpitations
	      (see BUGS).

       -i     Iced coffee. Self	explanatory really...

       -T     Turkish  coffee.	 The only  type	of  coffee that	 is boiled de-
	      liberately.  -s2	or more	 recommended  to avoid grimaces.

       -S[amount]
	      Size  of the virtual 'mug'  to be	 filled.  The  scale  used  is
	      fairly   arbitrary,  but should cover  most cases...  1 thimble-
	      ful

	      2	espresso cup

	      3	cafe-style coffee cup

	      4	office mug

	      5	sysadmin mug

	      6	bucket

	      Use of -S	6 is contraindicated  for use with  n(1), due to  pos-
	      sible   damage   to t he	nasal  membranes,  and risk  of	drown-
	      ing.  The	default	is 4; unless a beta version of	the OS is  in-
	      stalled, when the	default	is 5.  If the beta is of Digital UNIX,
	      6	is the default;	you'll need it.

       --other=drink
	      Specify  a drink other  than coffee.  Use	 of other options   is
	      not  recommended;	 the  behaviour	 is unspecified!

BUGS
       Caffeine	 overdose can result by	inadvised combinations	of options (ie
       -e  and large  values for -S).  If you  suffer >from   increased	 heart
       rate,   visual disturbance,  shaking hands,  shortness  of  breath,  it
       is  suggested  that you discontinue  use.   A -d	 (decaf)  option   was
       included	 in previous versions,	but was	 removed  after	 a  threatened
       litigation  arising  from an  unfortunate   practical   joke  involving
       misuse.
