glaurung - free UCI chess engine, to calculate chess moves
This manual page documents the glaurung
is an UCI chess engine, to calculate chess moves
This version of Glaurung has experimental support for PolyGlot opening books.
For information about how to create such books, consult the PolyGlot
documentation. Currently, Glaurung requires that the book file is named
book.bin and is placed in Glaurungs working directory.
More than one CPU
Beginning with version 2-epsilon/3, Glaurung has support for up to four CPUs.
Because the program currently cannot automatically detect the number of CPUs
on your computer, it uses only a single search thread by default. If your
computer has two or more CPUs (this includes dual-core CPUs like the Intel
Core Duo or the AMD Athlon 64 X2), you should set the "Threads" UCI
parameter to the number of CPUs to obtain optimal performance.
This program does NOT follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes.
Communication with UCI commands is documented by "The UCI Communication
Protocol" in /usr/share/doc/glaurung/engine-interface.txt.
