NAME
       nuke - launch nuclear weapons at mapped USENET sites

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/nuke [-y yield] [-a height] [-hcm] sitename...

DESCRIPTION
       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
       yourself.

FILES
       /usr/lib/maps/*		USENET map file database

BUGS
       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.

NOTE
       This command is restricted to super-users only.
