Here is a link to a simplified analysis file:

I guess it may still crash some GUIs because there are some long pvs.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Like Dann mentioned before as long as there are no spaces in the string the opcode can be used with or without quotes

There is an example in the ref., see the following.
16.2.5.15: Opcode "id": position identification

The opcode "id" is used to provide a simple identifying label for the indicated
position. It takes a single string operand.

This opcode is intended for use with test suites used for measuring
chessplaying program strength. An example "id" operand for the seven hundred
fifty seventh position of the one thousand one problems in Reinfeld's _1001
Winning Chess Sacrifices and Combinations_ would be "WCSAC.0757" while the
fifteenth position in the twenty four problem Bratko-Kopec test suite would
have an "id" operand of "BK.15".
So even if there is no space, quotes should be added.

Where does it say quotes are necessary when there are no spaces?
And if I assign "foo.001" to stra and foo.001 to strb, what will be the difference after sscanf with %s?

Put another way, in my millions of EPD records with no spaces in the Id, I have more without quotes than with them.

Nothing wrong with having the quotes. But I would be rather surprised if that were the reason far failure. (Unless, of course, there are spaces in the id)

I guess that Shredder crashes are caused by something else.

Thanks for the info.
Test set is nice, some new puzzles I have not seen before.
I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.
