Actually, you can just send the timing after ponderhit. UCI engines are supposed to ignore unknown additional things. From the UCI spec:
Quote:
if the engine or the GUI receives an unknown command or token it should just ignore it and try to parse the rest of the string in this line.


Since UCI also allows arbitrary whitespaces anywhere, engines cannot just expect the ponderhit line to be
Code:
"ponderhit\n"
it may as well be
Code:
" ponderhit \n"


Therefore, they have to check whether the line begins with "ponderhit", while removing possible whitespace before "ponderhit" of course. Engine that don't support additional information will just stop parsing at that point.
