   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.
