Exactly. Infinite analysis is exactly that: go on until the command is revoked, no matter how long it takes. If you want to analyze for 8 hours, you should not use go-infinite, but go-8-hours, just like Rasmus says. Then it is the engine's decision when to spit out a move, and it could do (and probably would do) all the things you wish.

If you run an EPD testsuite in XBoard, you can set it to any TC you like. You can use fixed time per move, or just specify an average time through a classical TC.


Except in profile, I have never told an engine to do infinite analysis, even once in my life. I simply don't have that much patience. Wink

Average time is fine. But if I give you an hour and you find a mate in 13 and you know there is not a mate in 12, then sitting there doing nothing for 45 minutes is not what anyone sensible on earth would want the engine to do. At least in my limited view, that is.

UCI has,
Code:
go mate n

You can combine that with depth and/or movetime
Code:
go mate 13 depth 80 movetime 2700000
