In fact, while:

causes gopher to ask me for input,
$ gopher gopher://gopher.floodgap.com/1/v2/vs%09cheese
works as expected. Which was kind of my point.
As I remember, UMN gopher isn't intended to be run like that. See its
specify a specific selector string to send to the gopher server
let the client know what type of object the -p option is point‐
-i search term
tell the client what to search for in the object defined by the
-p and -T 7 options.
So, one should use
gopher gopher.floodgap.com -T 7 -p /v2/vs -i cheese
instead. And this is clearly documented in the man page.
