Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Chess Engine Communication Protocol is an open communication protocol that enables a chess engine to communicate with its user interface. It was designed by Tim Mann, the author of XBoard. It was initially intended to only communicate with the GNU Chess engine which only accepted text input and produced text output. In fact, the first version of this protocol is nothing more than the behavior of GNU Chess's command line interface. XBoard, using the protocol, "wrapped around" GNU Chess by feeding the engine the expected text input, parsing the text output, and presenting this information on a graphical chess board.show more
