NAME

       eleeye_engine - a chess program engine to communicate with its user interface

SYNOPSIS

       eleeye_engine is a command-line client for UCCI (based on UCI) protocol. It
       provides full support of basic UCI command, such as position, go, banmoves or
       bestmove and much more.

DESCRIPTION

       The Universal Chess Interface (UCI) is an open communication protocol that enables a chess
       program engine to communicate with its user interface.

       It was designed and released by Rudolf  Huber  and  Stefan  Meyer-Kahlen,  the  author  of
       Shredder,  in  November  2000,  and  can  be  seen as a rival to the older XBoard/WinBoard
       Communication protocol. Like the latter, it is free to use without license fees.

       Customarily, UCI assigns some tasks to the user interface  that  have  traditionally  been
       handled  by  the  engine  itself. Most notably, the opening book is usually expected to be
       handled by the interface, by simply selecting moves to play until it is out of  book,  and
       only  then starting up the engine for calculation in the resulting position. (UCI does not
       specify any on-disk format for the opening book;  different  UIs  --  user  interfaces  --
       usually  have their own, proprietary formats.) Also, the user interface may handle endgame
       tablebases if the engine does not support it itself, although this is often better handled
       in the engine, as having tablebase information can be useful to consider a possible future
       position.
