NAME
       pioneers	- network implementation of Settlers of	Catan

SYNOPSIS
       pioneers	[ --server server ] [ --port port ] [ --name name ]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents briefly the pioneers command.

       Pioneers	 is  an	implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers
       of Catan" board game for	the GNOME  desktop  environment.   It  uses  a
       client/server  model  for networked play	of between two and eight play-
       ers.  You will need to connect to a machine  running  either  pioneers-
       server-gtk  or pioneers-server-console to play.	An AI client, pioneer-
       sai, is also available.

OPTIONS
       Pioneers	accepts	the standard GTK+/GNOME	commandline options,  and  the
       following options:

       -s, --server server
	      Hostname of the server

       -p, --port port
	      Portname of the server

       -n, --name name
	      Use this name for	the player instead of the name in the settings
	      file

       -v, --spectator
	      Connect as spectator instead of as a player

       -m, --metaserver	metaserver
	      Connect to this metaserver instead of the	metaserver in the set-
	      tings file

       --debug
	      Turn on debugging	mode

       --version
	      Show the version and quit

       When  the  server  and port are both provided, the client automatically
       quits when the connection is broken.

ENVIRONMENT
       The default settings can	be influenced with the	following  environment
       variable:

       PIONEERS_METASERVER
	      The  hostname  of	the metaserver.	 If it is not set, the default
	      metaserver will be used.

FILES
       /usr/share/games/pioneers/themes/*
	      Themes for display of the	map. Each theme	 goes  in  a  separate
	      subdirectory.
