NAME
       emp_server - Empire server

SYNOPSIS
       emp_server [-dFhpsv] [-e	configfile] [-E	action]	[-R seed]

DESCRIPTION
       emp_server  is  a  daemon  which	listens	to the Empire port for players
       connecting to the game.	For more information on	the  game  of  Empire,
       see the info pages within the game.

OPTIONS
       -d     Debug  mode.   This  will	prevent	the server from	forking	itself
	      into the background.  Implies -E abort.  You  normally  want  to
	      use this flag if you are running emp_server from within a	debug-
	      ger.

       -e configfile
	      Use game configuration in	configfile.

       -E action
	      What to  do  on  recoverable  internal  error  ("oops"):	abort,
	      crash-dump  (but continue), nothing (default).  crash-dump works
	      by aborting a fork of the	server process.

       -F     Force emp_server to start	even when game state looks bad.	 Risks
	      crashes  and further corruption; use this	only for attempting to
	      fix up problems.	Better make a backup first, and	lock out play-
	      ers.

       -h     Help.  Print brief usage information and exit.

       -p     Threading	debug mode.  Implies -d.

       -s     Enable thread stack checking.

       -R  seed
	      Set the seed for random function.

       -v     Print version information	and exit.

OPERANDS
       Operands	 are  ignored for backward compatibility.  Their use is	depre-
       cated.

SIGNALS
       SIGHUP Request emp_server to reopen log files and reload	its configura-
	      tion.   This allows proper log rotation.	Only the update	sched-
	      ule is reloaded at this time.

       SIGINT, SIGTERM
	      Request emp_server to shut down immediately.
