       fruit - Fruit is a UCI-only chess engine.




       This manual page documents briefly the fruit program.

       Fruit  is  an UCI-only chess engine. This distribution comes up with an
       opening book.

       Fruit and other UCI engines can be used with  XBoard  or  WinBoard  (or
       other   xboard-compatible   interfaces)   with  the  help  of  PolyGlot
       (UCI-to-xboard adapter). An other well known frontend is  KDE  knights,
       which has a UCI capable interface.


       These  program  does  NOT follow the usual GNU command line syntax, but
       can be fed with options with a personal config file which can  be  read
       by  the  polyglot  helper  software.  The  author himself says "You are
       advised to skip this section unless  you  are  completely  crazy  about
       computer  chess." For a complete description of these UCI commands, see
       the readme files.
