GNU Chess doesn't have an "open-dialog" Aidy needs to check what
interface he is using to run GNU Chess.

"load" is the opposite of "save".

That is EPD notation. Two identical positions - to save the moves you
need "pgn" format which is "pgnsave" and "pgnload".

Try a GUI like Xboard or knights.

The man page you referred to is for "version 4" of GNU Chess.

Try this link for version 1.12 of the documentation, which goes with GNU
Chess 5.07
