       gnubg - play and analyse backgammon games


       gnubg [options] [saved-game-file]


       This manual page briefly documents gnubg, the GNU Backgammon program.
       This  manual  page  was  written  for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
       because the original program does not have a manual page.  Instead,  it
       has  documentation  in the GNU Info format; to access this information,
       type info gnubg.


       These programs follow the usual GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options  starting  with  two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary of options is
       included below.  For a complete description, see the Info files.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -v, --version
              Show version of program.

       -b, --no-bearoff
              Do not use bearoff database.

       -d DIR, --datadir DIR
              Read database and weight files from directory DIR.

       -n[S], --new-weights[=S]
              Create a new neural net of size S.

       -r, --no-rc
              Do not read .gnubgrc and .gnubgautorc commands.

       -t, --tty
              Start on tty instead of using window system.

       -w, --window-system-only
              Ignore tty input when using window system.
