       glaurung - free UCI chess engine, to calculate chess moves




       This manual page documents the glaurung command.

       glaurung is an UCI chess engine, to calculate chess moves

       Opening book

       This  version of Glaurung has experimental support for PolyGlot opening
       books.  For information about how to create  such  books,  consult  the
       PolyGlot  documentation.   Currently,  Glaurung  requires that the book
       file is named book.bin and is placed in Glaurungs working directory.

       More than one CPU

       Beginning with version 2-epsilon/3, Glaurung has support for up to four
       CPUs.   Because  the  program currently cannot automatically detect the
       number of CPUs on your computer, it uses only a single search thread by
       default.   If  your  computer  has  two  or  more  CPUs  (this includes
       dual-core CPUs like the Intel Core Duo or the AMD Athlon  64  X2),  you
       should  set the "Threads" UCI parameter to the number of CPUs to obtain
       optimal performance.


       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.
