NAME
     dm.conf -- dungeon master configuration file

DESCRIPTION
     The dm.conf file is the configuration file for the dm(8) program.	It consists of lines
     beginning with one of three keywords, badtty, game, and time.  All other lines are ignored.

     Any tty listed after the keyword badtty may not have games played on it.  Entries consist of
     two white-space separated fields: the string badtty and the ttyname as returned by
     ttyname(3).  For example, to keep the uucp dialout, ``tty19'', from being used for games,
     the entry would be:

	   badtty  /dev/tty19

     Any day/hour combination listed after the keyword time will disallow games during those
     hours.  Entries consist of four white-space separated fields: the string time, the unabbre-
     viated day of the week and the beginning and ending time of a period of the day when games
     may not be played.  The time fields are in a 0 based, 24-hour clock.  For example, the fol-
     lowing entry allows games playing before 8AM and after 5PM on Mondays:

	   time    Monday  8	   17

     Any game listed after the keyword game will set parameters for a specific game.  Entries
     consist of five white-space separated fields: the keyword game, the name of a game, the
     highest system load average at which the game may be played, the maximum users allowed if
     the game is to be played, and the priority at which the game is to be run.  Any of these
     fields may start with a non-numeric character, resulting in no game limitation or priority
     based on that field.

     The game default controls the settings for any game not otherwise listed, and must be the
     last game entry in the file.  Priorities may not be negative.  For example, the following
     entries limits the game ``hack'' to running only when the system has 10 or less users and a
     load average of 5 or less; all other games may be run any time the system has 15 or less
     users.

	   game    hack 	   5	   10	   *
	   game    default	   *	   15	   *
