NAME
       pioneers-metaserver - metaserver	for Pioneers

SYNOPSIS
       pioneers-metaserver [options]

DESCRIPTION
       Pioneers	 is  an	implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers
       of Catan" board game.  It uses  a  client/server	 model	for  networked
       play.  This  program  provides  a  piece	of network infrastructure that
       helps match pioneers clients to pioneers	servers. Casual	players	of pi-
       oneers probably do not need to run this program.

OPTIONS
       -?, --help
	      Print a short help text and exit.

       -d, --daemon
	      Run in daemon mode.

       -P, --pidfile pidfile
	      Write the	pid to pidfile (implies	-d)

       -r, --redirect location
	      Redirect to another metaserver running at	location.

       -s, --servername	hostname
	      Use hostname as hostname when creating servers.

       -p, --port-range	from-to
	      Use  ports  in  the  range from-to (inclusive) to	start servers.
	      When this	range is not specified,	the  metaserver	 will  not  be
	      able to create new games.

       --debug
	      Enable debug messages.

       --syslog-debug
	      Duplicate	the messages of	the syslog to the console.

       --version
	      Show version information.

ENVIRONMENT
       The  default settings of	the metaserver can be influenced with the fol-
       lowing three environment	variables:

       PIONEERS_METASERVER
	      The hostname the metaserver will use when	 creating  new	games.
	      This  should  be	a hostname that	can be resolved	by all clients
	      that will	connect.

       PIONEERS_SERVER_CONSOLE
	      The path (including the  filename)  to  pioneers-server-console.
	      If  it contains only a filename and no path or if	it is not set,
	      the PATH variable	in the environment is used to locate the  pro-
	      gram.

       PIONEERS_DIR
	      The  path	 to  the game definition files.	 If it is not set, the
	      default installation path	will be	used.

FILES
       /usr/share/games/pioneers/*.game
	      Game definitions

SIGNALS
       SIGINT
	      Shutdown the metaserver gracefully (can also be  used  to	 check
	      for memory leaks)
