This manual page documents the pgn2web and p2wgui commands.

pgn2web is a program to generate webpages from "portable game notation" PGN files, that allow the replaying of chess games within a web browser. It has a commandline client and a gtk graphical user interface for convenience. The html output is highly customisable, it is using javascript and is standards compliant to be working with all major browsers.


These programs do follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with short options starting with one dash (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
-c yes|no
include a link to the pgn2web homepage.
-p <piece-set>
use the <piece-set> pieceset. Available sets are: adventurer alfonso-x cases condal harlequin kingdom leipzig line lucena magnetic mark marroquin maya mediaeval merida motif
-s frameset|linked|individual
use the specified layout.
Passing no parameters at all will simply launch the GUI version.
