Re: Awit-2009

Yeah, it's an interesting program. Unfortunately, it's a mess.... And that's no offense to Mr. Marsland, because even he admits that. It was always a part time hobby and there was never enough time to do a complete rewrite. So it just kept growing as ideas kept getting put in it. He even outgrew the...

Re: Is a querying the hash tables such a huge bottleneck?

DId you _read_ my last comment? Windows vista 64 bits + 64 bit gcc gives the expected sizeof(long) = 8. So I _did_ test windows. I don't use the microsoft C++ compiler so I have no idea what they do. But anyone that uses sizeof(long)=anything_other_than_8 on a 64 bit architecture is certainly brain...

Re: What AWIT(y) chess program. Tony Marsland's, that is...

Any chance you could upload the c translation of awit so I don't have to do the ocmal-aw2c stuff? Unfortunately, the C trnaslated version still needs the aw2c support libraries. So it'd have to be compiled for the same compiler you are using. I don't happen to have a recent C translated copy. In fa...

Re: What AWIT(y) chess program. Tony Marsland's, that is...

Tony specifically asked for windows tests, since he ran it under unix. He emailed me about this last week, told him I would test it on several different boxes when I get back to the office next week. Others are free to do the same. Nice to have a few "oldies" around (1991 Cray Blitz was another...)...

What AWIT(y) chess program. Tony Marsland's, that is....

This is just to let people know that Tony Marsland has released the source for his selective search chess program AWIT from the 70's and 80's. For those of you who don't remember Tony Marsland, he was one of the people who organized the first US computer chess tournament. He also did a lot of comput...

Re: Adapter for non-standard chess engine to Winboard

Sorry to bother you Carey with a tangential question. Is your site coming back? The one with all the oldies on it. It can be viewed in the Internet Archive which is not ideal, but at least it's something. Christopher Google changed their policy about allowing sites to have Javascript. They claimed ...
