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 pioneers 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 following 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 program.
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)
