SYNOPSIS

eboard [-log] [-debug] [-dgtport device ]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page briefly describes the eboard command.

eboard is a graphical chess board. It acts as an interface to chess engines (like GNU Chess, Sjeng and Crafty) and Internet Chess Servers (ICS) like FICS (http://www.freechess.org), and works as a browser for chess games saved as PGN (Portable Game Notation) files. eboard itself is not a chess engine: it won’t play games, it will just act as a graphical interface between programs that play games like GNU chess (or ICS servers) and the end-user.

To move pieces click on the source square and then click to destination square. Optionally, you may drag the piece from the source to the destination square (you won’t see the piece being dragged). To drop pieces on crazyhouse and bughouse variants (ICS-only) right-click the destination square and select the piece to drop from the popup menu.

For help with ICS commands consult the server (most of them have online help and help channels).

For help setting up associated programs (chess engines, timestamping, etc.) see the documentation in /usr/share/doc/eboard or visit the eboard web site at http://eboard.sourceforge.net. If the documentation is not installed in your system, you can find it in the source distribution, available from the web site.

OPTIONS

-log Log network communications to "~/LOG.eboard". Communications held in password mode are not logged.
-debug Print miscellaneous debug info to "~/DEBUG.eboard".
-dgtport device
  Use the DGT board connected to the given device.
