commands/information/finger  Nanvaent Player Help

     finger - find information about someone or everyone playing

     finger [-n] [ <player> | [ <player> ]@<mudname> ]

     The "finger" command is used to find out information about people. I'll
     let you guess why it's called "finger" :)  Use the "chfn" command to
     change the information you show to other people.

     Just entering "finger" lists everyone playing along with their status
     (Creator = C, Lord = L, etc.), their real name (if known), their
     location (if known) and their birthday (if known).

     The -n flag can be used to show the information without the person's
     plan being shown. A plan is set using the "alias" command.

     You can also list everyone playing on another mud that Nanvaent knows
     about. To do this give the name of the mud after an '@' symbol.
          finger @nightmare

     Alternatively, you can find out more detailed information on a certain
     player by giving a player name:
          finger mhoram

     You can also try and finger a player at another mud:
          finger descartes@nightmare

     The "mudlist" command will tell what other muds Nanvaent knows about.
     All network requests take some time to respond, so please be patient.
