polyglot - is a chess engine protocol adaptor. It connects a UCI
protocol engine to xboard frontend.
polyglot <INI files>
This manual page documents the polyglot command.
polyglot acts as an xboard engine. There should be no difference with
a normal chess program as far as the interface (e.g. scid, knights,
xboard) is concerned.
To use PolyGlot with XBoard, you would type something like this:
> xboard -fd ’polyglot_dir’ -fcp ’polyglot engine.ini’
Quotes are important when there is a space in the argument.
PolyGlot is invoked using "polyglot <INI file>". Note that PolyGlot
will look for the INI file in the current directory. So the user is
encuraged to make a .polyglot directory in his home and put the <INI
files> there. If no <INI file> is given, "polyglot.ini" is selected.
More information is included in dhe upstream readmes and the examples.
