pxboard - a script to pipe games into xboard
cat game | pxboard [xboard-options]
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.
No known bugs.
