       eleeye_engine  -  a  chess  program engine to communicate with its user


       eleeye_engine is a command-line client for UCCI (based on UCI) protocol. It
       provides full support of basic UCI command, such as position, go, banmoves or
       bestmove and much more.


       The Universal Chess Interface (UCI) is an open  communication  protocol
       that  enables  a  chess  program  engine  to  communicate with its user

       It was designed and released by Rudolf Huber and  Stefan  Meyer-Kahlen,
       the author of Shredder, in November 2000, and can be seen as a rival to
       the older XBoard/WinBoard Communication protocol. Like the  latter,  it
       is free to use without license fees.

       Customarily,  UCI  assigns  some  tasks to the user interface that have
       traditionally been handled by the  engine  itself.  Most  notably,  the
       opening  book  is  usually  expected to be handled by the interface, by
       simply selecting moves to play until it is out of book, and  only  then
       starting  up the engine for calculation in the resulting position. (UCI
       does not specify any on-disk format for the opening book; different UIs
       --  user  interfaces  --  usually have their own, proprietary formats.)
       Also, the user interface may handle endgame tablebases  if  the  engine
       does  not  support  it itself, although this is often better handled in
       the engine, as having tablebase information can be useful to consider a
       possible future position.
