gomokuis a two player game where the object is to get 5 in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally on a 19 by 19 grid. By convention, black always moves first. With no arguments,
gomokuwill display a playing board and prompt for moves from the user. The interface is visual and straightforward; you move to a spot using the hack(6) motion keys hjklyubn and select it with either ‘space’ or ‘return’. The game will beep if you select a location that is already occupied. To save the game, type ‘S’ and to quit, type ‘Q’. The optional file inputfile can be used to restore a saved game.
The options are:
gomokuhas the first move or not respectively. This option was intended for game tournaments where a referee program handles the board display and pits one program against another.
gomokuwill play a game against itself. This is mostly used for testing.
