DREAM(1) USER COMMANDS DREAM(1)

NAME

DREAM - suspend execution for an interval while executing random code in memory

SYNOPSIS

DREAM [-d] [[-nrRsw] [time]]

DESCRIPTION

Dream suspends execution of the current proces for time seconds, while simulating a dream sequence by executing random segments of code in memory. All devices are paralyzed (blocked) to prevent dangerous side-effects.

OPTIONS

-d (daydream)
code seems to be more related to the actual suspended process, and suspension will be for a limited amount of time. Attention can be restored by snapping fingers next to keyboard.

-n (nightmare)
Repeated references to the system error logs are made during execution.

-r (recurring)
The code of a previous execution will be re-selected for this dream.

-R (REM, Rapid Eye Movement)
The current value of the PC is is flashed on the screen for every instruction.

-s (sleepwalking)
Tape drives will be sent many alternating fast-forward and rewind requests and/or line printers sent many alternating carraige-return and tab codes to promote movement of machine(s) across floor. Stopping these devices may confuse the program.

-w (wet dreams)
The code is selected from the sex(1) program.

RESULT

DREAM(1) will be invoked automatically with the -d option when the system proves extremely slow.

The relation of the randomly-executed code to the subconcious (background tasks) of the current processes is suspected but has not been proven.

KNOWN BUGS

Do not select the -w option without covering the keyboard.
