Perishing Perft !

Post by GeoffW » Thu May 17, 2007 4:26 pm

Hi

I have got some peft bugs I need to fix. Can someone remind me please which freeware engines can print out detailed Peft results split into #ep moves, #castle moves, #standard moves etc etc ?

[D]r3k2r/p6p/8/8/8/8/P6P/R3K2R w - - 0 1

Using the position above, I have managed to put in a lovely bug where I see a discrepancy of +2 moves only at Perft 7

raw:14 end:14 secs:0.00
raw:206 end:192 secs:0.00
raw:3672 end:3466 secs:0.00
raw:63792 end:60120 secs:0.02 nps:3987000
raw:1287576 end:1223784 secs:0.33 nps:3925537
raw:25449546 end:24161970 secs:6.78 nps:3753067
raw:553838207 end:528388661 secs:216.25 nps:2561102 <---- GRRR

Can anyone confirm this is out by +2 ?

I cant see what it is so far that would give such a small error of just 2 moves. I dont think it can be due to ep moves or castling moves, so my best guess is a promote bug as white pawns would be on rank 7 by perft 7

What castling moves, according to fen there are none?

I get this:

Code: Select all

perft 1=      14 ops in 0.000 seconds  ops/ms=      1,  ticks/op=    0
perft 2=     192 ops in 0.000 seconds  ops/ms=      1,  ticks/op=    0
perft 3=    3466 ops in 0.000 seconds  ops/ms=      1,  ticks/op=    0
perft 4=   60120 ops in 0.000 seconds  ops/ms=      1,  ticks/op=    0
perft 5= 1223784 ops in 0.094 seconds  ops/ms=  13019,  ticks/op=  192
perft 6=24161970 ops in 1.625 seconds  ops/ms=  14869,  ticks/op=  168

Sorry, I looked at your raw numbers, here's perft 7 as well:

Code: Select all

perft 7=528388659 ops in 34.922 seconds  ops/ms=  15131,  ticks/op=  165
Indeed it is off by two. Unfortunately my engine is not free...

free movei does not do it but it can give you important details

Here is what movei prints in console mode(I entered the first 2 lines and movei generated the rest of the lines)

On my website there is a specialized perft program that you can give a FEN as an argument in the command line, and which can give output split to any level:

Amazing how fast Movei is, latest Hamsters (with hash table) takes 61 secs for perft 8 on my Mac Mini.

Quick Perft is also very fast IIRC but on same Mac (compiled on the fly with a simple gcc -O3) it cannot complete without a hash table and takes 25 secs just to reach perft 7.
