$ nochetodbload --help
Nocheto Database Loader 0.33, Ubuntu19_10, author: Petr BĂ­lek (
USAGE: nochetodbload [-h|--help] [-c|--config <file.ini>] [-p|--puzzle|-f|--fens-only] -- file.pgn
        file.ini    - Read configuration from this file (after reading nocheto.ini)
        file.pgn    - load PGN game from this file


Use --config filename.ini to read configuration file.

Nochetodbload always read ~/.nocheto/configs/nocheto.ini file first and then the file required by --config option. So you can use this to create ini configuration with different configuration for different usage.

The filename can be absolute path (i.e. ~/.nocheto/configs/tweak.ini) or just a basename (i.e. tweak.ini) in which case the full path is assembled from this basename and ~/.nocheto/configs/.

Fens only

Use --fens-only to load only new FENs from PGN file.

Load all FEN positions from the PGN file (including all alternative lines), but do not save games. (Fens are loaded into database, but games will not be accessible in game explorer.)

This is usefull when you want to load FEN positions from opening studies, puzzles or games, which you don't want to mess the statistics in game explorer.

PGN file

file.pgn is the PGN database file, which will be loaded into (sqlite) database.

If you load the same file twice, nochetodbload tries to find out the loaded games and will not load any games twice. But if there are more alternative lines, the positions are saved into db, so they can be evaluated.
