       quaqut -	retrieves game information

       quaqut  [ -a | -s | -g |	-y ] [ -p port ] [ -q port ] [ -t value	] [ -d
       value ] [ -f filename ] [ -r ] [	-v ] host

       quaqut is a simple program that queries	Unreal	Tournament  2004  (TM)
       game  servers  and  retrieves  information  like	 those available while
       browsing	servers	in the game. That means	information like server	 name,
       game type and current map, names	and scores of players, and much	more.

       -a     (DEFAULT)	Request	complete information, server/game/players.

       -s     Request only information about server.

       -g     Request only information about game.

       -y     Request only information about players.

       -p port
	      Specify  the  game  port of the server, useful for servers which
	      listen on	custom ports. If -p is not specified, the default port
	      7777 is used.

       -q port
	      Specify  the  query  port	of the server. Normally	this option is
	      not needed, since	the query port is the one right	after the game
	      port  (so	by default it is 7778).	Specifying a correct game port
	      will suffice in most cases.

       -t value
	      By default, quaqut will wait 10 tenths of	 second	 (one  second)
	      for  server  replies  (their  number is not always predictable).
	      This value is normally a good choice. People with	very  slow  or
	      very  fast  connections  (like  those  in	LAN games) may like to
	      fine-tune	this value.  value is in tenths	of second and must  be
	      a	number between 1 and 999.

       -d value
	      Activates	 daemon	 mode.	Normally quaqut	gets information, dis-
	      plays them and exits. In daemon mode, quaqut will	 keep  running
	      and will collect and display info	at regular intervals. Interval
	      duration is specified in seconds by value	, it must be a	number
	      between 10 and 9999.

       -f filename
	      Instead of printing information to stdout, quaqut	writes them in
	      the specified filename ; remember	that new information  are  not
	      appended	to the file, it	gets rewritten instead (this behaviour
	      has been thought for daemon mode). In order to append new	infor-
	      mation  to  an  existing file, simply use	output redirection in-
	      stead of this option.

       -r     Displays output in raw form. This	means unformatted output, with
	      each value on a single line. This	comes handy for	everyone want-
	      ing to parse the output within a frontend	or web page.

       -v     Displays quaqut version and exits.

       More  information  and  examples	 about	quaqut	 can   be   found   at
