This package contains standalone UGF to SGF and Ishi to SGF converters.
Using these converters is identical to loading an UGF or Ishi game in glGo and saving it again as SGF file, but should be more convinient to use on a collection of files. Both converters are included in the glGo distribution. This package is provided if you want it seperately without installing glGo. If you have glGo installed, you do not need this.
If you are on Windows, either use ugf2sgf or ishi2sgf from a DOS terminal; make sure the
files are in your PATH.
ugf2sgf | ishi2sgf [-o <outfile>] <infile>
Or, much simpler, create desktop icons from ugf2sgf.exe and ishi2sgf.exe and then drag&drop .ugf/.ugi or .go files on the Desktop icon. You can also drag&drop a directory on the icon, and all .ugf/.ugi or .go files within the directory and all subdirectories will be converted in one step. Selecting ugf2sgf for .ugf/.ugi files or ishi2sgf for .go files via the "Open with" explorer popup menuitem is another possibility.
For Windows there is a package which includes the Python runtime library, otherwise - if you already have Python installed - get the Python source code which can be installed using the normal Python way: setup.py install
On Linux please install Python from your distribution, and install the source archive via "setup.py install" which will create /usr/bin/ugf2sgf.py and /usr/bin/ishi2sgf.py, which you can use from a terminal. Or simply run the scripts from the directory where you unpacked the download to without installing it. I leave the fiddling how to integrate this into konqueror/nautilus/whatever to you.
Commandline usage examples:
|ugf2sgf foo.ugf||converts foo.ugf to foo.sgf|
|ugf2sgf foo.ugf bar.ugf||converts foo.ugf to foo.sgf and bar.ugf to bar.sgf|
|ugf2sgf *.ugf||converts all ugf files in the current directory (same as "ugf2sgf .", see below)|
|ugf2sgf -o bar.sgf foo.ugf||converts foo.ugf to bar.sgf|
|ugf2sgf foo||converts all .ugf files within foo and all subdirectories of foo to <file>.sgf|
|ugf2sgf||converts all .ugf files in the current directory|
|ugf2sgf -o bar .||converts all .ugf files within the current directory and subdirectories|
