Nocheng (Noidea Chess Engine) 0.21 Author: Petr BĂ­lek (
USAGE: nochetoengi [-h | --help] [-d | --debug] [-c | --config >file.ini<] [-l | --log-file <logfile.txt>]
        file.ini    - Read configuration from this file (after reading nocheto.ini)
        logfile.txt - file to append UCI communication


Use --debug to debug nochetodbeval. This is mainly for developing purposes, you probably wouldn't need to use this.


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

Nochetoengi 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/.

There is not anything you can configure in nochetoengi with config file. So, this options is useless (for now).


Use --log-file logfile.txt to log UCI communication. It is usefull to log communication between this engine and any chess GUI.
