Tablebase class name list available

Post by sje » Mon Dec 19, 2011 10:48 pm

I had CookieCat output its list of tablebase class names for size two through ten and write these to a file. If you are doing tablebase or endgame classification work, you might be interested. For a limited time only, see the text file TBClassNames at the https://public.me.com/chessnotation site.

I think you don't need to probe KQQQQQQQQQK, because if you are on the side with the queens, you are probably going to win (if you avoid stalemates).

In my program Symbolic, there is no tablebase class name generator. Instead, I just hard coded the 146 2-5 man class names as the initialization for a static vector of strings and had these parsed during program start-up. So that's one way in which having a class name list can be useful.

But having a generator is more elegant.
