The NETCOMM project aims to allow communication over a local network through the
networks broadcast address. This allows any client to connect with the client without
the process of creating any sort of account. The default username for an account is the
computers username (i.e., if youre logged into your computer as Joe your NETCOMM
username will also be Joe). The default transmission port for messages (imagine the
port as a radio frequency, you have to be tuned to that frequency to send and receive
on it) is 8080, but can be changed using the changeport command (a more thorough
explanation can be found in the commands section). The target audience for this
project is students at Lake Norman High School, however it can theoretically be used

Various commands are accepted by NETCOMM, some with practical uses, others, well,
not so much. These commands are always prefaced with a double-dash () and any
message that starts with this will not be sent.
Commands are formatted in the following format:
command [argument 1] <argument 2>
Arguments enclosed in brackets [ ] are required, and those enclosed in alligators < >
are not.

changeport [port number]

ex. changeport 8081

Allows the user to change what port theyre sending/receiving messages on. Port
numbers must be between 2000 and 9000.

ex. 733t

Bring back the 90s black-background consoles with their green text. Fun stuff.
setcolors [background color] [foreground color]

ex. setcolors red green

Set colors for the foreground and background of NETCOMM (mainly just for fun).
Certain colors are accepted in text, and a list of these colors can be found in the
appendix. Additionally, colors can be set using hex codes such as those generated on
colorpicker.com. As an example, for a pale blue, you could type the color as #BBECFC
without quotes.

ex. normalmode

Use this command if youve changed the colors of the background/foreground and
would like to reset them to the default white/black.
