there something available?

Cant the command line version perform rollouts and do most of the things
the graphic version does?

Rolling out positions is relativaly easy. Something like :

load commands "script to setup rollout options"

load position "pos.sgf"
set matchid mmm
set board bbb


rollout =cube
rollout =1 =2 =3

export position text "pos.txt"

set another position, or change score, etc...

There was a time when CLI rollouts were noticeably faster than those from the GUI, but this may not be the case anymore (there were some fixes to rollout progress display that should have helped).

There are some small problems when the result is displayed : http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?12805

Rolling out a game or a match looks cumbersome (I never really tried it).

What would be nice would be a "delayed" toggle in the GUI Setting|Rollouts menu. With it selected, rolling out a move or a cube decision would just append the corresponding commands (load match ; set rollout parameters ; hint ; rollout selection ; save match) to a script file that could be run later.
