Introduction

The Shell is a utility for controlling and monitoring Doomsday servers. It has a curses-based terminal-friendly UI that allows one to connect to local and remote Doomsday servers. One can also start new servers on the local machine.

Once connected to a server, a console command line is provided for controlling the server.
