sjeng - Chess program which supports several variants
Documentation for sjeng is available in /usr/share/doc/sjeng/README. It is
strongly recommended that you use sjeng in combination with some interface
like xboard or eboard. Please read the documentation of xboard and eboard to
find out how to enable variants.
There are no command line options for sjeng, but sjeng uses a configuration
file, by default /etc/sjeng.rc. If present, the file ~/.sjeng/sjeng.rc in the
user's home directory will be read instead of the system default. A
well-documented example configuration can be found in
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original
program does not have a manual page.
Sjeng was written by Gian-Carlo Pascutto <firstname.lastname@example.org>, based on work
done by Adrien Regimbald <email@example.com>.
