slave(1)                    General Commands Manual                   slave(1)

NAME
       slave - a semi-interactive interactive command for the dirty work

SYNOPSIS
       slave [ command ]
       slave -f

DESCRIPTION
       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  one's
       laser  printer.  The  interface  for  the slave command is kept simple,
       mainly to keep down the complexity of the internal parser.

THE OPTION
       -f     Send a rapid succession of SIGHUPs to slave,  mainly  used  when
              one needs to blow off a little steam.

THE COMMANDS
       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.

BUGS
       This  program violates many standards and ethics, most notably the UN's
       Human Rights (as if they were extendable to programs...)
