.SH NAME
burgerspace-server \- UDP server for the networked version of BurgerSpace
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B burgerspace-server
.SH DESCRIPTION
.PP
\fBburgerspace-server\fR
is a server that accepts connections from BurgerSpace clients 
to allow two players to compete with each other. One player controls the
chef and the other controls the egg. Other clients can connect as
spectators.
.PP
burgerspace-server should be started in a terminal. To terminate it,
give the Ctrl-C sequence or use the kill(1) command with the server's
process ID as the argument.
.PP
The connections use the UDP protocol. The \fB\-\-port\fR option can be
used to specify a non-default listening port (see below).
.PP
After the server has started, the user who wants to control the chef
must start the client with this command:
.PP
burgerspace \-\-server=the.server.hostname.com \-\-chef
.PP
Use the appropriate hostname or IP address as the argument for \-\-server.
The user who wants to control the egg must give the \-\-enemy option instead
of \-\-chef.
The \-\-port option can be added to the burgerspace command-line to specify
the server port, if the server was started with a non-default UDP listening
port.
.PP
.SH OPTIONS
.PP

\fB\-\-help\fR
