zic2xpm - Tool to convert ZIICS chess pieces into XBoard (XPM/XIM) pieces.
zic2xpm file1 [file2 ...]
zic2xpm converts one or more ZIICS piece files into a format that can be used by XBoard.
If you give more than one filename, be aware that multiple sets of the same size cannot
exist in one directory. Multiple sets of different sizes can exist in a single directory.
If you wanted to make a directory containing the sets SET2.V32, SET2.V40, SET2.V50, and
SET2.V56, all of which are located in ~/ziics, you could do:
You would then run XBoard like this:
xboard -pixmap Sets
