'formula' is a variable that can be set with the 'set' command to screen match challenges you receive from other players. If your formula evalutes to "true" when someone challenges you with the match command, then the challenge will get through to you. If it evaluates as "false", then the challenge is rejected, and you receive notification that it is rejected. 0 is "false" and 1 is "true". You may view your current formula with 'vars' .
If you want your formula to be used to screen people who accept your seek ad, you must type 'set useformula on' before you issue the seek. You only have to type this once. It is saved.
Formulae do not apply to "rematch" challenges, and the pools like 1-minute, 5-minute, etc.
