sh/node all

But, be warned it will show you *ALL* the nodes, I have about 1000
defined here (hint: every PC19 has nodes in it).

There is no document but it is very simple, if you subclass the
IntMsg.pm thing you can't really go far wrong, but I *could* document

doesn't really help you.

You may wish to send node protocol down it...
