5.1 Interpreting Traces

A quick way to find out roughly the reason for a move is to run

gnugo -l filename -t -L move number

(You may also want to add `--quiet' to suppress the copyright message.) In GNU Go 3.2, the moves together with their reasons are listed, followed by a numerical analysis of the values given to each move.

If you are tuning (see section 12.11 Tuning the Pattern databases) you may want to add the `-a' option. This causes GNU Go to report all patterns matched, even ones that cannot affect the outcome of the move. The reasons for doing this is that you may want to modify a pattern already matched instead of introducing a new one.

If you use the `-w' option, GNU Go will report the statuses of worms and dragons around the board. This type of information is available by different methods, however (see section 5.6 Debugboard, see section 5.8 Colored Display).
