slave(1)		    General Commands Manual		      slave(1)

NAME
       slave - a semi-interactive interactive command for the dirty work

SYNOPSIS
       slave [ command ]
       slave -f

DESCRIPTION
       The purpose of the slave	command	is to do all those small things	around
       the computer that one never finds the time for.

       One typical use for the slave command is	to change the toner  in	 one's
       laser  printer.	The  interface	for  the slave command is kept simple,
       mainly to keep down the complexity of the internal parser.

THE OPTION
       -f     Send a rapid succession of SIHUPs	to slave, mainly used when one
	      needs to blow off	a little steam.

THE COMMANDS
       Almost  any  phrase  in pidgin English is acceptable input to the slave
       program,	but care should	be taken to keep grammatical structure	on  an
       easy level, so not to confuse the poor program.

BUGS
       This  program violates many standards and ethics, most notably the UN's
       Human Rights (as	if they	were extendable	to programs...)

AUTHOR
       This man	page is	written	by Ingvar Mattsson, 1996, in an	effort to  ex-
       tend the	alt.sysadmin.recovery collection of man	pages.
