       glaurung is an UCI chess engine, to calculate chess moves

       Opening book

       This  version  of  Glaurung  has  experimental  support  for  PolyGlot opening books.  For
       information  about  how  to  create  such  books,  consult  the  PolyGlot   documentation.
       Currently,  Glaurung  requires  that  the  book  file  is  named book.bin and is placed in
       Glaurungs working directory.

       More than one CPU

       Beginning with version 2-epsilon/3, Glaurung has support for up to four CPUs.  Because the
       program currently cannot automatically detect the number of CPUs on your computer, it uses
       only a single search thread by default.  If your computer  has  two  or  more  CPUs  (this
       includes  dual-core  CPUs like the Intel Core Duo or the AMD Athlon 64 X2), you should set
       the "Threads" UCI parameter to the number of CPUs to obtain optimal performance.


       This program does NOT follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting
       with two dashes.


       Communication  with  UCI  commands  is  documented  by "The UCI Communication Protocol" in
