Finger is primarily used to provide information about players and creators. It returns information such as when they were last on, or since when they have been logged on for, how long they have been idle for (if at all), their real name, location, email address and birthday (if they entered them), how old their character is, what guild they are in etc. etc.

With no arguments finger will provide a list of who is currently on Epitaph giving their name, real name, location and birthday. The second field is [H]ighlord, [L]ord, [S]enior creator, [C]reator, [p]laytester. Normal players have no flag, and [X] means they are still logging in. It also shows when people are using [e]armuffs.

Finger can also be used to find out information about creator domains. In this context, finger will return who the director of the domain is, a brief description of the domain and a list of the creators in the domain and their current project.

Changing finger information

To change your finger information use the command chfn.

The wonderful .plan (and .project) can be set in your aliases, and can each be five lines long. ie to set your plan:
