NAME

       make-gnome-freecell-board, make-aisleriot-freecell-board, make-microsoft-freecell-board,
       make-pysol-freecell-board - Programs to generate boards to be used as input to Freecell
       Solver.

SYNOPSIS

       program [-t] board-number

       or for make-pysol-freecell-board:

       program [-t] [-F] board-number [game-string]

       or for make-aisleriot-freecell-board:

       program [-t] board-number [game-string]

DESCRIPTION

       These programs are command-line programs that can generate the initial board of the
       Freecell games of several popular Solitaire implementations. Those boards can be in turn
       be inputted to fc-solve by means of a pipeline, or placed inside a file for safe-keeping.

       make-pysol-freecell-board and make-aisleriot-freecell-board also accept an optional third
       argument which indicates the game type. This type defaults to  Freecell, but is useful for
       generating the boards of other games.  Note that  using this flag does not preclude one
       from using the "--game" flag of fc-solve.

       make_pysol_freecell_board.py accepts another parameter called -F or --pysolfc that deals
       the PySolFC boards instead of the classic PySol ones.

       A common paradigm for using those programs is something like:

           bash:~$ make-microsoft-freecell-board 11982 | fc-solve -l gi

       If the "-t" option is specified, then the 10 cards are printed with "T"'s, instead of
       "10"'s. While this does not have any effect on fc-solve it may prove useful for other
       solvers or solitaire implementations which do not accept "10"'s.

       Here is a short description of each program:

       make-gnome-freecell-board

       Generate the boards of the standalone Freecell program that comes with the GNOME desktop.

       make-aisleriot-freecell-board

       make-pysol-freecell-board

       make-microsoft-freecell-board

       A program that generates the boards of Microsoft Freecell and of the Freecell Pro
       implementation of Freecell.
