NAME

       pxboard - a script to pipe games into xboard

SYNOPSIS

       cat game | pxboard [xboard-options]

DESCRIPTION

       Pxboard  saves  its  standard  input  to  a  temporary file and invokes
       “xboard -loadGameFile file &” on the file.  Although it is possible  to
       pipe  games  directly into xboard using “xboard -lgf -”, this script is
       nicer in two ways: (1) xboard can seek on the temporary  file,  so  the
       popup  game  list,  Load  Previous Game, and Reload Same Game all work.
       (2) The script runs xboard in the background and exits.  So if you save
       a  news article by piping it into this script, you immediately get back
       control of your news reader.

       The script turns on -noChessProgram mode by default.   If  you  want  a
       chess program started, give the -xncp option.
