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...)

AUTHOR
       This man page is written by Ingvar Mattsson, 1996, in an effort to extend  the  alt.sysad-
       min.recovery collection of man pages.
