NAME

       yics - Yahoo! Chess client for use with FICS interfaces

SYNOPSIS

       yics [ -l logfile ]

DESCRIPTION

       YICS  connects  to  the  free  Yahoo! Chess lobbies and emulates a FICS
       server.  It can be used  with  most  FICS  interfaces  (xboard(6),  for
       example) to play on Yahoo! Chess.

OPTIONS

       YICS currently accepts only one option:

       -l logfile
              Saves a connection log (excluding login information) to logfile,
              which can be attached to  a  bug  report  if  requested  by  the
              author.

COMMAND REFERENCE

       A  reference  of commands, and other useful documentation, may be found
       on the YICS wiki: <http://wiki.yics.org>.

YICS AS A HELPER PROGRAM

       YICS was designed to be used as a helper program with FICS  interfaces.
       With xboard the use is fairly straightforward:

        xboard -ics -icshost Yahoo -icshelper yics

       Note  that  the parameter to -icshost has no effect, aside from setting
       the xboard title.  eboard is a little tricky, but can be done:

        ln -s $(which yics) timeseal.$(uname -s) ; eboard

       Choose "Peer > Connect to FICS" in eboard to connect.
