Basic

SYNTAX Edit

[##:##] Command : telegram <CNUM/CNAME>...

The telegram command allows communication to take place between representatives. Currently you are given only 1024 characters per telegram.

The <CNUM/CNAME> argument is either the number or name of the recipient nation. You may specify as many recipients on the command line as you wish. Telegrams sent to country #0 appear as prayers, (favors are best obtained in this manner.)

While entering your telegram the system tells you how many characters you have left. You end the telegram by by entering a line with a '.' on a line by itself. A line containing only '~q' will abort the telegram.

For example:

[##:##] Command : tel 7 8
Enter telegram for multiple recipients
undo last line with ~u, print with ~p, abort with ~q, end with .
