NAMEyics - Yahoo! Chess client for use with FICS interfaces
SYNOPSISyics [ -l logfile ]
DESCRIPTIONYICS connects to the free Yahoo! Chess lobbies and emulates a FICS server. It can be used with most FICS interfaces (xboard(6), for example) to play on Yahoo! Chess.
OPTIONSYICS currently accepts only one option: -l logfile Saves a connection log (excluding login information) to logfile, which can be attached to a bug report if requested by the author.
COMMAND REFERENCEA reference of commands, and other useful documentation, may be found on the YICS wiki: <//wiki.yics.org>.
YICS AS A HELPER PROGRAMYICS was designed to be used as a helper program with FICS interfaces. With xboard the use is fairly straightforward: xboard -ics -icshost Yahoo -icshelper yics Note that the parameter to -icshost has no effect, aside from setting the xboard title. eboard is a little tricky, but can be done: ln -s $(which yics) timeseal.$(uname -s) ; eboard Choose "Peer > Connect to FICS" in eboard to connect.
