Pos is an experimental chess program based not on the Shannon algorithm, but on several others.
The algorithm used is determined by a genetic (evolutionary) algorithm.
How to run it?
In a terminal
When using the SUN Java 5.0 runtime environment, start it with "java -Xmx384M -jar pos.jar".
The program should now fully support xboard/winboard. Start it with commandline "java -Xmx384M -jar pos.jar --io-mode xboard".
For example: xboard -firstChessProgram "java -Xmx384M -jar pos.jar --io-mode xboard"
