chess - the game of chess SYNOPSIS
/usr/games/chess DESCRIPTION
Chess is a computer program that plays class D chess. Moves may be given either in standard (descriptive) notation or in algebraic nota- tion. The symbol `+' is used to specify check; `o-o' and `o-o-o' specify castling. To play black, type `first'; to print the board, type an empty line. Each move is echoed in the appropriate notation followed by the program's reply. FILES
/usr/games/lib/book opening `book' DIAGNOSTICS
The most cryptic diagnostic is `eh?' which means that the input was syntactically incorrect. WARNING
Over-use of this program will cause it to go away. BUGS
Pawns may be promoted only to queens. CHESS(6)

eleeye_engine - a chess program engine to communicate with its user interface SYNOPSIS
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. DESCRIPTION
The Universal Chess Interface (UCI) is an open communication protocol that enables a chess program engine to communicate with its user interface. 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.
