You mean use Mb for tt size instead of number of bucket ?
I will. Thanks for the advice.

Vivien, I can see that you have withdrawn 0.0.20 and replaced it with 0.0.21. What are the important differences?

Weini is in heavy developpement, especially during holiday time, so I change version as soon as some elo are here. That means once a week usually...
0.0.21 is a little better than 0.0.20, with more aggressive pruning. I also introduce probCut but without elo gain, I have to get back to this soon.

0.0.22 is in preparation with ttsize input in Mb, every options available from the command line and some more elo.

If you are compiling for test purpose (and I would be so happy you are !), you won't be able to test all versions. So you can stick to what you have already.

In the future, I can use the minor version number to "tag" testable versions if you want. Using the convention 0.Y.XX, we can say that every time Y is changing, this is a new "testable" version.

Thanks for your interest.

Is there a way to disable logging? I have already 50 log files in the folder and it is going to be 500. Yes, I can delete them any time I want...

Not yet, but soon

you can remove line 38 in main.cpp and compile again ... sorry

Code: Select all

     LogIt::SetOStream(*xof);
Or remove them by hand. Next version will have an option for this ...

Done !

In next release, I'll try to use SEE pruning.

The command line has changed

Code: Select all

weini --xboard
Two "-" are needed now.

And the reason?

Do other parameters also require -- in the command line?

The reason is that I switch to the pretty TCLAP library for managing the command line and this lib is using both "long" and "short" argument GNU-style.

No other parameters are required. Note that I switch of logging in file by default.

There is still a small difficulty. There may be people who cannot compile it for themselves. At least I know one...
