D.16 What is Zippy? How can I interface a chess program to the Internet Chess Servers?

Zippy is an interface that lets GNU Chess or Crafty act as a computer
player on an Internet Chess Server. Zippy is included in both the XBoard
and WinBoard distributions. It is implemented as a small amount of
additional code within XBoard or WinBoard. For documentation, see the
file zippy.README, included in both distributions or available from my
chess Web page,
http://www.research.digital.com/SRC/personal/Tim_Mann/chess.html . The
version of zippy.README on my Web page is often more up-to-date than
those in the XBoard/WinBoard distributions. You'll also find a
"biography" of Zippy and pointers to the original Zippy the Pinhead
comic strips on my Web page. Please read zippy.README carefully before
you ask me any questions about Zippy.

Using a computer to choose your moves on a chess server is considered
cheating unless your account is on the computer (C) list. Read "help
computer" on your favorite server for details on their policy. Most of
the servers have plenty of computers running now, so they will not be
excited about having you run a new one unless you have written your own
chess engine. They don't really need yet another Crafty or GNU Chess
clone.
