nuke - launch nuclear weapons at mapped USENET sites
/etc/nuke [-y yield] [-a height] [-hcm] sitename...
Nuke employs the `missile coordinate' fields in the USENET map database and Internet con-
nections to a server interfaced with AUTOVON to lob nuclear weapons at other UNIX sites,
specified by name. The default warhead is a single 25KT groundburst tac nuke; options
support other combinations of warhead size, type and deployment.
The -y option specifies a yield. The argument must be a number suffixed by K or M, for
kiloton or megaton respectively. Yield arguments above 255M are quietly ignored.
The -a option specifies an air-burst height in meters.
The -h option specifies thermonuclear (hydrogen) weapons.
The -c option specifies cobalt-jacketed warheads for permanent site interdiction.
The -m option, useful with multiple-site nuke calls, invokes code which optimizes delivery
using MIRVed warheads to minimize launches.
In accordance with the normal UNIX design philosophy nuke does not prevent you from nuking
/usr/lib/maps/* USENET map file database
If a target site has given only nearest-city coordinates in its map entry, incorrect tar-
geting and significant collateral casualties may result.
Heavy use of nuke may cause EMP effects which interfere with Internet service.
This command is restricted to super-users only.
