Unix man page for NCM

     NCM(1)                  (Essential Fluids)                 NCM(1)

          ncm - new coffee maker

          ncm [ -RadCxmlnogrtucpFbqisf ] [caf|decaf|columbian]

          For each available heating unit, ncm determines if coffee
          exists, is hot, and is not tar(4).  If any of these are
          true, the necessary actions are taken to change the
          situation as required, or as specified by the environment
          variable BURNERS.  ncp then gathers the necessary material
          and proceeds.  The -M option makes coffee in the morning.
          The drinkinfo(4) database is used to determine the blend and
          the amount of caffeine, based on the environment variables
          DRINK, TZ, and the current time.  If this information cannot
          be obtained, full strength Maxwell House is assumed.

          The ncm command has many, many more than the following
          options, not all of which are currently supported.  Some may
          never be supported.  We are really busy here, and we will
          try to get around to it as soon as possible, but Doc is
          breathing down my neck to get something else done, so you
          will just have to be patient!:

          -R   Recursively make coffee until all resources are

          -a   Generate aroma only.

          -l   The same as -n except slower.

          -d   Brew decaf.  Will not operate before 10:30 am.

          -n   The same as -l

          -j   Use Jamaica Blue Mountain primo special.  This can only
               be executed by coffeadmin.

          -r   Reverse the order of brewing to get newest first or
               oldest first as appropriate.

          -v   Execute the vgrind(1) program before proceeding for a
               fresher brew.

               ncp -ldm NOW!

          Make lots of coffee now!


          tee(1), coke(1), sync(1).

          The ncm command may be used as a filter.

          For more information see the "Making Good Coffee" section of
          Chapter 10 of the Kitchen Administrator's Guide.

          Ick. I hope not.
