$ nocheto --help Nocheto (Noidea Chess Tool) 1.1.0, Ubuntu19_10, author: Petr Bílek (nocheto.sallyx.org) USAGE: nocheto [-h | --help] [-d | --debug] [-c | --config <file.ini>] [-b | --board <boardtype>] [-e | --engine <engine>] [--ipv4] [ -- <file.pgn>] file.ini - Read configuration from this file (after reading nocheto.ini) boardtype - Board GUI (iso, utf8, ascii, compressed, compressed-utf8) (default utf8) engine - stockfish, gnuchess, nocheng or "arbitrary command string" (default stockfish) file.pgn - load PGN game from this file
--debug to debug nocheto communication with engine.
This is for developing purposes only, you probably wouldn't need to use it.
--config filename.ini to read configuration file.
Nocheto always read
~/.nocheto/configs/nocheto.ini file first and then the file required by
--config option. So you can use this to use ini configuration file to change only a few
The filename can be absolute path (i.e.
~/.nocheto/configs/tweak.ini) or just a basename
tweak.ini) in which case the full path is assembled from this basename
--board boardtype to select the desired
board design. Available board types are:
utf8 (the default),
ISO board is usefull on terminals without utf8 support
(i.e. on terminals where you get by CTRL+ALT+F2).
This board shows minimum information, is very small and doesn't use any UTF-8 characters. Not sure if it is usefull for anything :-).
--engine engine to change engine used for play and analyze games.
It is recomended to use this option over setting engine in configuration file. Keep the configuration
value on stockfish (or whatever you want to use to analyze positions by nochetodbeval).
You can use configuration files to set the default engine. stockfish is recomended.
Search for nochetoclient
--ipv4 to start waiting for nochetoclient.
This behaves the same way as if you run
ipv4 command just after starting nocheto.
How to open PGN file
To open PGN file, just write its name after nocheto (and all its options).
This opens file the same way as if you run
open filename.pgn command in nocheto.
