Introduction

With the program sgf2misc electronic game records can be converted from and to various other formats. Thus images can be created for web publishing, PostScript files for electronic publishing, or ASCII output for media such as E-mail or newsgroups. Furthermore, facilities are provided to perform conversions between electronic formats such as UGF and SF. Finally, a facility is provided to standardize your SGF code while performing optional transformations of the moves such as mirroring or rotations of the original game record.

The main format used during all these operations is SGF. So if you want to convert UGF to SF you convert the UGF to SGF first and next to SF. If you want to create PNG images from an SF game record convert the game to SGF and next use the image mode to create the diagrams.
