Brainless -- A chess playing program written in ANS Forth. Copyright (C) 2010 David Kühling <dvdkhlng TA gmx TOD de> Use this program under the GPLv3. NO WARRANTY! Get the latest Version from: http://sourceforge.net/projects/forth-brainless/ As this is work in progress, there are still several missing features, the most important being: * no documentation * 50-move rule isn't checked yet * human players must use >remove< and >add< after a pawn promotion to select the piece of their choice To run the program on ANS Forth systems, just load 'brainless.fs'. On Unix systems with Gforth installed, try './configure && make install' to install Brainless as stand-alone application. A long time ago I tested this program with GForth, PFE and BIGForth, but nowadays I'm using Gforth exclusively. If you find problems on an otherwise ANS conforming system, please contact me! If you want to play a game against Brainless, you'll have to use the Forth terminal interface (have a look at tui.fs). Load "brainless.fs", and type: help \ to get Brainless' integrated help texts e2 e4 m \ to do a move from e2 to e4 cm \ to let the computer move look \ to have a look on the chessboard init-board \ to initialize the chessboard to defaults e4 remove \ to remove the piece on e4 w pawn e4 add \ to add a white pawn on e4 clear \ to clear the whole chessboard other-party \ to switch the party that is at move 6 TO max-think-limit \ to let the computer think up to 6 plies 3 TO abort-time \ to make the computer abort thinking after \ 3 seconds TRUE TO use-arith-notation? \ switch to arithmetic move notation For Benchmarking load the file "benchmark.fs", and run the 'benchmark' word.
