Moved "40H" tools/utilities to a new URL

Post by Norm Pollock » Wed Dec 21, 2016 4:30 am

Moved the "40H Chess Tools and Utilities" links page
(a/k/a "Norm's Chess Downloads") to a new URL:

40h.000webhostapp.com

Unfortunately the previous host suddenly stopped providing
service without warning or explanation. I tried several times
and ways to contact them but I could not get a response.

So after waiting a week, I decided to move on to a new host.

Please update any links you may have.

Thanks for info. I noticed already that the old address linked to a new and unrelated domain.
I have updated my link section today.

Hi, Norm!

Could you share a Linux binary or source to compile?

Regards,

Regards,
The source code is in Java. If you send me your email by pm I will send you one source code. If you are able to compile a workable Linux binary then we will go from there.

Hi, Norm!

You can use <my username> at gmail.com

I don't know how to make an executable from a java file, all documentation I found says you still need a JVM. However, a .jar should work.

I'm interested in bmOpcode mostly to evaluate some positions using stockfish and compare with my chess engine.

Thank you very much,
and happy holidays!

Some ideas on how to compiling a ".class" file.

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1296 ... class-file

Once it's compiled you can run, for example truncate.class, with:

Code: Select all

java truncate helloworld.pgn 4

Hi Alexandru,

Creating linux executables from a Java program is beyond my know-how. One major advantage of Java is that you do not have to make local executables for every tom, dick and harry operating system. You can work within a JRE or Java Runtime Environment whatever the platform.

There is some instruction in the readme, but basically here is what you have to do:

Do you have a java environment already installed?

in a command window enter

java -version

if the no response or version less than 6.xx then this might help:

https://www.java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml

Once java JRE (or JDK) installed, check java version again (see above)

Then using the "Java" download from 40H, use the appropriate class file. In this case "bmOpcode.class". Do not enter the entension in the command:

java bmOpcode Analyses.log

Remember you have to have Analyses.log already created from Arena 3.1, and in the same folder. Be careful with Arena, if you using an older version, they spell it "Analysis", in which case you should change the name or get a newer version.

40H tools only have 1 class file per tool. If there were more than 1, they would have to be put into a "jar" file that would be used in place of the "class" file and then you would also have to use a "-jar" parameter.

The new URL is not working for me. It did yesterday, but not now.

To say they are unreliable is an understatement.

Fortunately Jesse offered to host the site and while we are in the process of testing it, it does seem to be ok. Try this one:
