NAME

       tourney-manager - perl interface to run chess engine tourneys

SYNOPSIS

       tourney-manager configfiles

DESCRIPTION

       tourney-manager helps you to run chess engine tournaments easyly.

       Running Tournaments:

       1.  Create  a  directory  in  which  the tourneymanager can put all his
       temporary files, configuration and results.

       2.    Then    create    the    configuration     files.     Look     at
       /usr/share/doc/tourney-manager/example.conf  which  is  supplied  along
       with the tourney manager. Copy this  to  the  tourney  directory,it  is
       rather well commented.

       More  tuning  has to be done to specify non standard chess engines. The
       example-engine.conf has some standard engines set. The settings have to
       be tuned according your system.

       Example for an UCI engine:

       example-engines.conf:

       engine = Glaurung2 bin     = /home/username/chess/tourney/glau.sh

       glau.sh:

       #!/bin/bash                                         /usr/games/polyglot
       /home/username/chess/tourney/glaurung.ini

       glaurung.ini:

       [PolyGlot]

       EngineDir = .  EngineCommand = /usr/games/glaurung

       Log = false LogFile = glaurung.log

       Resign = true ResignScore = 600

       [Engine]

       Hash = 64 OwnBook = false Threads = 1

       3. Start the tourney manager tourney-manager The tourney  manager  uses
       an  interactive  command  shell.  To  start  up  quickly,the  following
       sequence of commands should be enough:

               create
               print
               start

          Help about commands is available by 'help' and 'help <command>'.

OPTIONS

       This program just takes the configfile as an option.
