This version of Glaurung has experimental support for PolyGlot opening
books. For information about how to create such books, consult the

file is named book.bin and is placed in Glaurungs working directory.
More than one CPU

This program does NOT follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with
long options starting with two dashes.
Communication with UCI commands is documented by "The UCI Communication
Protocol" in /usr/share/doc/glaurung/engine-interface.txt.
