WUMP(6) 							   Games Manual 							   WUMP(6)

NAME
wump - the game of hunt-the-wumpus SYNOPSIS
/usr/games/wump DESCRIPTION
Wump plays the game of `Hunt the Wumpus.' A Wumpus is a creature that lives in a cave with several rooms connected by tunnels. You wander among the rooms, trying to shoot the Wumpus with an arrow, meanwhile avoiding being eaten by the Wumpus and falling into Bottomless Pits. There are also Super Bats which are likely to pick you up and drop you in some random room. The program asks various questions which you answer one per line; it will give a more detailed description if you want. This program is based on one described in People's Computer Company, 2, 2 (November 1973). 7th Edition May 20, 1985 WUMP(6)

HUNTD(6)							 BSD Games Manual							  HUNTD(6)

NAME
huntd -- hunt daemon, back-end for hunt game SYNOPSIS
huntd [-s] [-p port] DESCRIPTION
huntd controls the multi-player hunt(6) game. When it starts up, it tries to notify all members of the hunt-players mailing list (see sendmail(8)) by faking a talk(1) request from user ``Hunt Game''. The -s option is for running huntd forever (server mode). This is similar to running it under the control of inetd(8) (see below), but it consumes a process table entry when no one is playing. The -p option changes the UDP port number used to rendezvous with the player process and thus allows for private games of hunt. This option turns off the notification of players on the hunt-players mailing list. INETD To run huntd from inetd(8), you'll need to put the hunt service in /etc/services: hunt 26740/udp # multi-player/multi-host mazewars and add the following line to /etc/inetd.conf: hunt dgram udp wait nobody /usr/games/huntd huntd Do not use any of the command line options; if you want inetd(8) to start up huntd on a private port, change the port listed for hunt in /etc/services. NETWORK RENDEZVOUS
When hunt(6) starts up, it broadcasts on the local area net (using the broadcast address for each interface) to find a hunt game in progress. If a huntd hears the request, it sends back the port number for the hunt process to connect to. Otherwise, the hunt process starts up a huntd on the local machine and tries to rendezvous with it.
