Re: understanding android chess engine binary formats

They may not be a big market share but the trouble is they area bigger market share of one star reviews if you don't support them. Anyway to tell if the device is on one of these intel chips? Looks like the only way to exclude them is doing that manually in the app store: https://support.google.com...

You could also look here: http://uz.sns.it/~m2/openseal.c I am sure that one works fine. The one you mention seems to use the local array 'hello' uninitialized? thanks. I'll look at this over the weekend. I took a quick look and it was re-assuring to see function names like SendToFics. Mike Spent t...

how to use timeseal code(zseal) at FICS in an app that needs built in timeseal

hi, I found this for timeseal. https://github.com/fbergo/zseal I want to do 3 things. One is do whatever it takes to properly initalize it, two is receive data and three is send data. I can make it connect if i ignore this code in main() if (n==0) { fprintf(stderr,"EOF from stdin\n"); exit(0); } if ...

I was born around the same time as the GM though i'm older. I have a different middle name. Mike was the most popular boys name in English in the early 70s. I...
