spaceman - object space manager
spaceman [ -d ] [ -s dir ]
Spaceman is a server that enables object spaces to be accessed by name.
The -d option enables certain debugging output.
The protocol for communicating with spaceman
is defined and implemented by SpaceManager(3I).
When a server registers with spaceman,
it assigns the server a Unix-domain socket for communication
with clients on the same machine and a TCP port number
for communication with remote clients (port assignment
is not currently implemented).
File system entries for local sockets are normally kept
in the directory ``/tmp/.allegro''; this can be overriden
with the ``-s'' option.
