GNU Go Documentation

3.1 Getting Documentation

You can obtain a printed copy of the manual by running make gnugo.ps in the `doc/'directory, then printing the resulting postscript file. The manual contains a great deal of information about the algorithms of GNU Go.

On platforms supporting info documentation, you can usually install the manual by executing `make install' (running as root) from the `doc/' directory. The info documentation can be read conveniently from within Emacs by executing the command Control-h i.

Documentation in `doc/' consists of a man page `gnugo.6', the info files `gnugo.info', `gnugo.info-1', ... and the Texinfo files from which the info files are built. The Texinfo documentation contains this User's Guide and extensive information about the algorithms of GNU Go, for developers.

If you want a typeset copy of the Texinfo documentation, you can make gnugo.dvi or make gnugo.ps in the `doc/' directory.

You can make an HTML version with the command makeinfo --html gnugo.texi. Better HTML documentation may be obtained using texi2html -split_chapter gnugo.texi. You can obtain the texi2html utility (version 1.61 or later) from http://www.mathematik.uni-kl.de/~obachman/Texi2html/. (See also http://texinfo.org/texi2html/.)

User documentation can be obtained by running gnugo --help or man gnugo from any terminal, or from the Texinfo documentation.

Documentation for developers is in the Texinfo documentation, and in comments throughout the source. Contact us at gnugo@gnu.org if you are interested in helping to develop this program.
