I think I managed to disable all references to the second engine in -epd mode, in the latest version. I could run the test suite with an invalid engine name in the -scp option, so it seems to work.

Indeed, that is always the place where the latest version of XBoard/WinBoard can be found.

In Scid vs PC subversion I've added an EPD analyze/test feature.
I think i have the idea, but it doesn't handle xboard epd's or engines (yet?).

Hi,

I have an EPD file with several hundreds positions that I use for testing engines. With windows, I use Arena which is very good for automatic analyis of several positions. Then, it gives a log with the number of positions solved, time used etc.

My question is : is there the same kind of software for Linux ?

Thanks.
If you don't mind using python, I think this work great - analyse.py , under tools:

https://github.com/jdart1/arasan-chess/ ... ster/tools

requires the package pychess which is pretty simple to install

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install pychess
It was recently updated to give you a running total how many are being solved correctly and the % solved correctly.
