gnurobots(6) Program a robot to explore a world


gnurobots [OPTION]... [FILE]


GNU Robots is a game/diversion where you construct a program for a little robot, then watch him explore a world. The world is filled with baddies that can hurt you, objects that you can bump into, and food that you can eat. The goal of the game is to collect as many prizes as possible before you are killed by a baddie or you run out of energy.

Programs for the robot are written in Scheme.

GNU Robots will run the scheme file given as FILE.
