What is it
GNU chess is a program which plays a chess game against itself or
a user. Normal use is to read and write commands to and from a front
end such as xboard, or the Sun chesstool program.
This program is simply for enjoyment and plays a very tough game of chess.

There are no specific OS dependancies compiled into GNU chess to my knowledge.
Whilst it is compiled for Solaris 2.5, it should happily work on later
releases of Solaris and X11.
