<HT> in Crafty thinking output?

What does "<HT>" in Crafty thinking output mean?

I have Googled and Ctrl-F'ed Crafty documentation but couldn't find any reference to it.

I assume it means that the search reached a position already stored in a Hash Table.

It means the line is extracted from the hashtables.

That's right. Bob also explained it in the Crafty code:

Code: Select all

.....Change to hashing code so that we *
 *           can now determine that a hash entry came from the EGTB so that    *
 *           PVs are displayed with <EGTB> when appropriate, not <EGTB> if it  *
 *           originally came from the EGTB but later <HT> when it was picked   *
 *           up from the hash table instead. .....
