sfk status target[:port] "status text"

send a status to the SFKTray GUI tool for display,
by UDP to given target host, or "local" for own machine.

statustext fields
   v1         protocol version, always v1
   slot=n     target slot number 1-9
   color=s    set color s as one of:
              red green blue yellow orange
              gray grey white cyan purple black
              or with SFKTray Full only:
              3- or 6 digit rgb hex value
              e.g. f00 = red, dddddd = light gray
   blink=s    select 'slow' or 'fast' blink
   timeout=n  time in seconds to display status.
              if not reconfirmed in that time
              the slot color changes to gray.
   timeout=15,orange
              display status for 15 seconds
              then change slot color to orange
   text='s'   a text for display. must be surrounded
              by any delimiter not part of the text,
              normally single quotes ''

about the target machine
   - use "local" if SFKTray runs on the same machine
   - else supply hostname or IP
   - default port used by SFKTray is 21343.
     SFKTray Free cannot use a different port.
     SFKTray Full can be run with a differen port like
        sfktray -port=5000
     then use: sfk status local:5000 ...

limitations
   only one instance of SFKTray can be used per machine.
   SFKTray Free supports 2 slots, i.e. slot=1 or slot=2.
   SFKTray Full supports 9 status slots and is available from:

     http://stahlworks.com/sfktray

command chaining
   is supported without any chain input or output.

please note:
   if a command behaves unexpected, compare exactly with the
   examples given below. not every typing error is detected.

examples
   sfk status local "v1 slot=1 color=yellow text='checking service'"
      tell that a service is currently checked on slot 1
   sfk status local "v1 slot=1 color=green timeout=15,orange text='ok'"
      tell that a service is currently running. the check must be
      repeated within 15 seconds otherwise the status times out
      and SFKTray changes the slot color to orange.
   sfk status local "v1 slot=1 color=red blink=slow text='service offline'"
      tell about an offline service on localhost slot 1
   sfk -var for i from 1 to 9 +status local "v1 slot=#(i) color=gray" +endfor
      reset all status slots
