.SH DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the
.B quake\-server
command.
.PP
.\" TeX users may be more comfortable with the \fB<whatever>\fP and
.\" \fI<whatever>\fP escape sequences to invode bold face and italics,
.\" respectively.
\fBQuake\fP is a popular first-person shooter game that appeared in 1996,
released by iD Software.  This wrapper script will launch the Quake
dedicated server.
.PP
The game data needs to be installed independently using the 'game-data-packager'
program, and by default it will be looked for at \fI/usr/share/games/quake\fR.
.PP
This wrapper script accepts the two common GNU-style options to get information
on the program.  Any further arguments are passed to the engine unmodified.
Consult the engine documentation for full details, but most engines support a
syntax whereby engine switches are prefixed with a minus sign, and you can
give console commands by prefixing with a plus sign.  See the examples section
for some common cases.
.SH OPTIONS
These options are accepted for \fBWRAPPER-OPTIONS\fR in the
synopsis.
.TP
.B \-h, \-\-help
Show summary of options.
.TP
.B \-v, \-\-version
