    1212Note that two copies of startstop pointing at the same startstop *d file are not allowed to run simultaneously. The second one started will fail and quit. (If you really want to do this for some reason, you'd need to make sure that you use all different rings in the second version, different ports for the modules, and a different startstop*d file, specified as a parameter when starting startstop.)

    14 If the user presses the "Enter" key while the startstop command window is selected, or enters the command "status", startstop will print a status table showing various statistics for each module, including whether it is dead or alive. If a module is dead because it could not be started (for example, the executable's name were mistyped so the executable could not be found), it will be reported as NoExec.

    1616Startstop will also react to 'restart' messages from statmgr. This is part of a scheme wich works as follows: A module may have the token "restartMe" it its .desc file (the file given to statmgr, which tells it how to process exception conditions from that module). If its heartbeat ceases, statmgr will send a restart request to startstop. Startstop will then kill the offending module, and restart it with the same arguments as it did at startup time. There are some system specific features, listed below: 
     
    9999Setup the PC so that it automatically logs in as 'earthworm' upon reboot 
    100100Setup EW so that it starts up every time user 'earthworm' logs in
