Manual Reference Pages - SLAVE (1)
slave - a semi-interactive interactive command for the dirty work
slave [ command ]
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
ones laser printer. The interface for the slave command is kept
simple, mainly to keep down the complexity of the internal parser.
Send a rapid succession of SIHUPs to slave, mainly used
when one needs to blow off a little steam.
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.
This program violates many standards and ethics, most notably the UNs
Human Rights (as if they were extendable to programs...)
This man page is written by Ingvar Mattsson, 1996, in an effort to
extend the alt.sysadmin.recovery collection of man pages.
