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.

(DEFAULT) Request complete information, server/game/players.
Request only information about server.
Request only information about game.
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, displays 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 information to an existing file, simply use output redirection instead of this option.
Displays output in raw form. This means unformatted output, with each value on a single line. This comes handy for everyone wanting to parse the output within a frontend or web page.
Displays quaqut version and exits.
