Difference Checker for Clones

This seems like a task better suited for a computer. If a secure way could be developed to submit encrypted code of two different programs and let the computer calculate and generate statistics on common code then no human would ever have to see a programmer’s code and it might then be easier to det...

Re: Are these persons incompetent ?

Why doesn't someone play the two against each other? Strelka vs. Rybka? How does that sound? Or get out a dual or better system load your favorite GUI in analysis mode using both engines and play over say 100 GM games or more and view the output of both engines while recording the results using a s...

Re: How do you define a clone?

First off, Thank you to everyone that has tried to answer the 1st part of my question "How do you define a clone?" I think most of us would define the word as I found it defined in Wikipedia. So I really liked Michael Sherwin's point about "Derivation. I think a lot of programs are derivatives of so...

Re: Strelka 1.8 UCI released

Great minds think alike.
No, Great minds think for themselves! 8-) For the record I do not believe this engine is a clone either. However I have been known to be wrong from time to time. :oops:

How do you define a clone?

I strongly dislike clone accusations, but it seems as if this forum will always have them. No one so far has defined what should be considered a clone here that I can recall. So can we please define just what should be considered a clone here in this thread. Crafty clones, Fruit clones, Rybka clones...
