makeweights [[-f] output [input]]


makeweights generates GNU Backgammon binary weights file from a text input file. By default, it reads input from standard input and writes output to standard output, but input and output files may be specified on the command line. It is only of interest if you want to regenerate the gnubg.wd database from a modified gnubg.weights file.



This option may be given for compatibility with the options of other GNU Backgammon programs but is ignored.


To generate gnubg.wd from gnubg.weights:

    makeweights gnubg.wd gnubg.weights
