I created the two appended patches. One fixes a copy&paste error in
utils.cpp, which leads to a broken -l command line option. For example
"-l human xboard" was treated as "-l human human".
The other patch changes the console output of moves, so that it can be
fed to crafty or eboard for post-mortem game analysis.
I am working on a patch that interfaces brutalchess to the crafty chess
engine. I am positive to release it within two weeks. If I find these
two patches in the svn trunk soon, it will boost my efforts.
Thank you for writing this beautiful chess program in the first place
and keep it coming!
