Wpa commands

xZise edited this page Sep 12, 2011 · 3 revisions

All these commands allow the user to handle the warp protection areas managed by xWarp. These commands are valid since xWarp 3.0.0.

It is possible to use different commands in xWarp. Each of them will be interpreted with the Parser so everything after the command can be escaped/quoted etc.

Info: Required parameters are placed in angle brackets and optional parameters in square brackets.


Instead of wpa it is possible to use xwpa.
