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...)
