According to the Readme
There are instructions how to compile the program without tablebase support. There are also instructions for those who... the permission to use and distribute Eugene Nalimov's and Andrew Kadatch's code for accessing Nalimov tablebases along with the sources of Protector is pending...
how to make a version which is enabled to access egtbs....have the permission to use or include their ( Nalimov's and Kadatch's) code...
These instructions include to copy files from Crafty (egtb.cpp, tbdecode.h and lock.h).
My first question is: is it legal to copy files from Crafty and use them in other programs? I presume the answer is no.
Furthermore there are some executables in the package which seem to use the tablebases:
Code: Select all
256208455.056 POLYGLOT FEN 8/4R3/4K1P1/7k/8/8/8/5r2 w - - 0 97... 1256208455.088 Engine->Adapter: info depth 37 seldepth 37 time 1 nodes 19144 pv g6g7 f1g1 score mate 19 tbhits 1300
Maybe only the Readme isn't up-to-date. Can someone please enlighten me?
