       pi-make-microsoft-freecell-board, -
       Programs	to generate boards to be used as input to Freecell Solver.

       pi-make-microsoft-freecell-board	[-t] board-number

       or for [-t] [-F] [--ms] board-number [game-

       These programs are command-line programs	that can generate the initial
       board of	the games of several popular Solitaire implementations.	Those
       boards can be in	turn be	input to fc-solve by means of a	pipeline, or
       placed inside a file for	safe-keeping. also accepts an optional third argument
       which indicates the game	variants. This type defaults to	Freecell, but
       is useful for generating	the boards of other games. Note	that using
       this flag still requires	one to use the "--game"	flag of	fc-solve, if
       necessary. also accepts a flag	called -F or --pysolfc
       that deals the PySolFC boards instead of	the classic PySol ones,	and
       one called --ms or -M that deals	Microsoft Freecell/Freecell Pro	deals
       even for	higher seeds.

       A common	paradigm for using those programs is something like:

	   bash:~$ pi-make-microsoft-freecell-board -t 11982 | fc-solve	-l gi

       If the "-t" option is specified,	then the 10 cards are printed with
       "T"'s, instead of "10"'s. While fc-solve	can accept either as input, it
       may prove useful	for other solvers or solitaire implementations which
       do not accept "10"'s.

       Here is a short description of each program:

       A Python	script that generates the boards of the	various	games of


       A program that generates	the boards of Microsoft	Freecell and of	the
       Freecell	Pro implementation of Freecell.
