freecell-solver-range-parallel-solve - The Freecell Solver utility for
solving a range of Microsoft Freecell/Freecell Pro Boards

**SYNOPSIS**

freecell-solver-range-parallel-solve __start__ __end__ __print_step__
**[--binary-output-to** **filename]** **[--total-iterations-limit** **limit]**
[fc-solve Arguments...]

**DESCRIPTION**

**freecell-solver-range-parallel-solve** is a command line application that
solves a range of Freecell deals of Microsoft Freecell and Freecell
Pro.
__start__ is the first board to solve; __end__ is the last (inclusive) and
__print_step__ is the division of board numbers in which to print a status
message.
Following this three mandatory parameters are several flags specific to
the range solve. (refer to the **OPTIONS** section for more information)
Afterwards one can give it a **fc-solve** command line that it will use to
solve each board. Refer to the **fc-solve**(6) man page for information
about its options.

**OPTIONS**

**--total-iterations-limit** sets the maximal number of iterations with
which to try to solve each deal. After that, the program will give up
and report that the board was intractable.
**--binary-output-to** sets the filename into which to output the number of
iterations it took to solve each board. This file can later be used
with statistical preset optimizers such as those found in the Freecell
Solver CVS repository.
