The Pip Command

Display pip count

Syntax: pip

Use the pip command to see your and your opponent's pipcount. For those who don't know what 'pipcount' means: it's the total amount of points you have to move your pieces to bear them all off. This command can only be used if both players have set their 'allowpip' toggle to YES (that's the default). Type toggle allowpip if you think that using a computer to compute the pipcount is not fair. This command can also be used while watching a game if both players have set their allowpip-toggle to YES.
