The Rawwho Command

A special Who command for client programs.

Syntax: rawwho same arguments as the who command

The rawwho command produces almost the same output as the who command. The main difference is that the output is easier to parse by client programs. For that purpose the following differences to the output of the normal who command exist:

No title line is sent.

each line representing a user starts with the text 'who: '.

the status field contains the character '-' (minus) for each field that the normal who output shows as a ' ' (blank).

player names are not truncated.

The text 'who:end' is sent as the last line of the output. Note that there is no ' ' (blank) between 'who:' and 'end'.
