openipmish - Shell interface to an IPMI system
is a command interpreter that gives the full power of the
OpenIPMI library to a user-level command language. It is designed so it can

must enter commands to make connections to domains.

code enabled for this option to be available.

defines some commands that are not in the standard command
language. These are:
- Read and execute commands from the given file.
- redisp_cmd on|off
- Normally, openipmish redisplays the command line when an event comes in.
This is nice for interactive use, but bad for scripting. This lets you
turn that function on and off.
