    44 * Press : (colon) to enter a BarnOwl command. These will be written in '''bold'''. While typing something in the command line, press Tab to see possible completions.
    55 * Use '''exec <command>''' to run <command> as from a shell. However, this does not allow input to '''<command>''', and has very limited output capabilities.
    6  * Use '''suspend''' to suspend BarnOwl and return you to the shell. When you're done, use fg to resume BarnOwl.

    77 * Use '''source <file>''' to make BarnOwl execute the commands in '''<file>'''. When starting up, BarnOwl will execute its startup file, which is typically in ~/.owl.

    1212 * Use '''sub <class> <instance> <recipient>''' to subscribe; that is, all messages to '''<class>''', '''<instance>''', and '''<recipient>''' will be shown to you. You may omit '''<recipient>''', or both '''<recipient>''' and '''<instance>'''; you will then receive everything matching the remaining arguments.
    1313 * Use '''zpunt <class> <instance> <recipient>''' to punt; you will temporarily not receive any messages sent to '''<class>''', '''<instance>''', and '''<recipient>'''. You may omit '''<recipient>''', but be warned: if you give only one argument, '''zpunt''' will assume it's an instance, and punt '''MESSAGE''' / '''<instance>'''. This is probably not what you want.
    14  * Use '''show zpunts''' to list your current punts. '''<class>''' will have turned into !^(un)*'''<class>'''(\.d)*$. '''zunpunt''' will remove punts, with the same format and caveat as above.
     14 * Use '''show zpunts''' to list your current punts. (There will be some changes; for example, '''<class>''' will have turned into !^(un)*'''<class>'''(\.d)*$.) '''zunpunt''' will remove punts, with the same format and caveat as above.
