This is GNU Go, a Go program. Development versions of GNU Go may be found
at http://www.gnu.org/software/gnugo/devel.html. Consult TODO if you are
interested in helping.
In short, ./configure; make will build GNU Go; optionally
(running as root) make install will put it into /usr/local/bin and
also install the man page. You also will probably want to install CGoban.
See INSTALL for details.
User documentation can be obtained by running gnugo --help or
man gnugo from any terminal.
Documentation for developers is in the docs directory, and in comments
throughout the source. Contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in
helping to develop this program.
Go Modem Protocol
The Go Modem Protocol was developed by Bruce Wilcox with input from
David Fotland, Anders Kierulf and others, according to the history in
ftp://www.joy.ne.jp/welcome/igs/Go/programs/protocol.Z . Any Go program
*should* use this protocol since it is standard. Since CGoban supports this
protocol, the user interface for any Go program can be done entirely through
CGoban. The programmer can concentrate on the real issues without worrying
about drawing stones, resizing the board and other distracting issues.
