Re: Crafty v24.0

Compiled fine on my 64-bit linux box. Thanks. Was using the annotate command. Are the dollar signs eval symbols? Here is a snippet from 'test.pgn.can' 56. Kh5 Ke6 57. Kh6 Kf5 58. Bd4 Rg6+ 59. Kh5 ({21:-7.22} 59. Kh5 Rd6 60. Bc5 Rd5 61. Bf8 Rd8 62. Bg7 Rd1 63. Kh4 Rh1+ 64. Kg3 Rg1+ 65. Kf3...

Re: how to make a chess interface

Another thing I will need is to block/unblock processes. Do you know how to do that (in POSIX) ? When I play A vs. B, if it's A's turn to play, I want to block B, let A calculate, and when it's B's turn I unblock it. The point is that B could be in a polling loop: if B uses blocking I/O (which is t...

Re: Phalanx source code

The signal function just installs a signal handler. I was under the impression that this wasn't necessary for Windows engines.

Re: Q: FICS code and 64-bit (va_list)

Can you cite some example where the letters a-z have a "C" embedded in the middle? Note that we ARE talking English here, not Vulcan or Klingon. :) Even something as archaic as EBCDIC doesn't fail here. Perhaps you're thinking too much like a computer. :) The key phrase above is "using the current ...

Re: Q: FICS code and 64-bit (va_list)

This CentOS is a bit fishy anyway: make install did crash on it not being case sensitive in file names, so that the command "cp [a-z]* ..." also tried to copy the directory CVS, which produced a fatal error. What filesystem is being used there? FAT? Well, I really don't know anything about CentOS o...

Problem is that I normally get thousands of compiler warnings, when doing "make". :cry: I will try to see if the -m32 helps, though.

Re: Help us make Cute Chess GUI better

I don't have strong preferences for many of these things, but 3) Do you prefer to make your moves by dragging a piece, by clicking the source square and then the target square, by typing the move, or by using some other method? Have you seen how Scid handles this? It allows all of these methods (and...
