The following WrenGROGGS commands are available. All of them take
the options '--help' and '--version', and all of
them will accept the WrenGROGGS options and
switches, though irrelevant ones may be ignored :
Commands essentially unchanged from PHOENIX GROGGS :
Commands present in PHOENIX GROGGS and not present in WrenGROGGS:
- gcontribute for contributing
- grcontribute for replying to
- greaditem for reading items.
- gnewitems lists recent items and
- gindex by default, gives a list of
all the items in GROGGS. Can in fact do a lot more than this if
you're prepared to mess about with its switches.
- gcollate reads all the items
in GROGGS and dumps them into a file. Please don't use it often.
- ghelp gives some simple help.
- grogname sets your grogname
permanently (ie. in your ~/.groggprefs file).
- grogprofile sets various
GROGGS options in your ~/.groggprefs - default server, default
userid, default editor, that sort of thing.
- groggers shows you who else
is grogging at the moment (when Ian gets around to implementing
it in the server).
- geditors shows you which editors
are currently logged on in their 'usual' haunts (again, when Ian
gets around to implementing the server INFO command).
- greadedits shows you the
current edit log.
Commands absent in PHOENIX GROGGS and present in WrenGROGGS:
- OLDITEM - there is no GROGGS.OLD.
- READNEW - I'm a shortage of manpower. Anyway, greadnew is
an estimate, not a promise, and is by and large good enough
(within my definition of 'reasonable'). Noted. I shall cause this to
- READGROGGS - GROGGS.CURRENT no longer exists.
- READOLD - ... neither does GROGGS.OLD.
- RMESSAGE - The CMS is extinct.
- NMM1 - I can't remember what it said now.
- gregister registers you
to use GROGGS.
- gnop checks if the server is
- gcheckgroggs tells you the
last time GROGGS was accessed.
- gmday prints the message of the
- groggs allows you to execute any
of the other commands.
- gcopying shows the copying
policy for WrenGROGGS.
- glogin checks your login status
(ie. tries to log in, and tells you if it suceeded).
