PlayOnLinux - front-end for Wine

playonlinux [options]

PlayOnLinux is a front-end for Wine. It allows you to easily install and use numerous games and softwares designed to run with Microsoft®'s Windows®.
Few games are compatible with GNU/Linux at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system.

PlayOnLinux performs installations in ~/.PlayOnLinux and uses separate Wine prefixes to avoid conflicts between applications.

Show version number and exit.
