5.7 Command line options

If you play around with your settings and end up with a Chess++ client that isn't usable anymore, you can restore the default settings by invoking chesspp --clear from the command line.

Qt offers different styles, you can choose from. A list of those styles can be found in this gallery. The default style Chess++ uses, is Plastique. If you start Chesspp with chesspp --style=stylename Chess++ will be started using the Qt-style "stylename". (These Qt styles are not to be confused with our Chess++-themes discussed in section 5.6.2.)

Invokation of chesspp --version prints version information to the terminal and chesspp --help lists all available command line arguments.
