Developer comments

I was looking into doing a draughts game for Linux. There are some strong programs for windows but not so many for Linux. Some of the stronger windows programs distribute their engine code as a dll which is good for other windows programs but not so good for an open source Linux application.

Then I discovered guicheckers which is a draughts program for windows that comes with source code and a good engine. I decided to convert guicheckers to work under Linux and Samuel is the result. Samuel is guicheckers for Linux.

The C++ engine code, board graphics and databases (opening book and endgame) all come from guicheckers. I wrote a new python / GTK front end gui with an interface that is very similar to guicheckers.
