-A useful utility called @command{debugboard} is made in

-in an Xterm. Use a smaller font since it requires 50 rows

-movement keys, you can move around the board and find

+The quickest way to analyze most positions is to use the tool
address@hidden in the @file{regression} directory. It can be started
+with a testcase specified, e.g. @command{pike view.pike strategy:40} or
+at a move in an sgf file, e.g. @command{pike view.pike mistake.sgf:125}.
+When started it shows the position on a grapical board on which it also
+marks information like move values, dragon status, and so on. By
+clicking on the board further information about the valuation of moves,
+contents of various data structures, and other data can be made
+Specific information on how to use @file{view.pike} for influence tuning

-There are two distinct implementations of the pattern matcher in GNU
