Re: oldie but goody

I used to run a fortran iv compiler on IBM 360 and 370 hardware in the late 1970s.
You will need:
// exec fortfclg
for execute fortran (f) compile, link, go
I don't remember if the F is for fortran (f)our or if it was the (F) version of the compiler.

Re: PGN standard

But a concise standard would be nice. IE san or coordinate. I prefer SAN since PGN is supposed to be human and machine readable. And what about: 0-0. O-O. and o-o? All appear in various PGN games lying around. Lots of other examples as well. A standard that says "anything allowed" is not very helpf...

Re: Certain top engines are only good at playing strong chess and that is all ?

The statement is vague. If Stockfish is running on an iphone, I would take the GM player + knight + pawn. If Stockfish is playing on Bojung Guo's strongest machine, I choose Stockfish. I don't have enough data to choose anything in-between. I guess that if the GM plays anticomputer chess style, he c...

Re: Stockfish_dev is probably stronger than Sargon 1978 v1.00

I don't think the weak 6 ply searches matter at all. You can get to 15 plies in an eyeblink. If you like ultra-hyper-bullet game in one tenth of a second, then use Komodo. I am not sure how the NN programs would do at ludicrously short time control. It would be interesting to see an LC0/Komodo match...

Re: PGN standard

I don't know if anyone has mentioned it, but the: [Setup "1"] tag that is required when there is a fen position is utterly and in all ways inconceivably useless. Since we already have a [Fen "position"] tag, what is the Setup tag supposed to do for us? Is it a friendly warning? "Strap on your helmet...
