An opening book for Linux-Cake
Peter Chiochetti recently revamped his checkers interface for Linux. The best engine for this interface is an old version of my checkers program, Cake++ 1.19. Yesterday, I added some code to it to handle an opening book and built a 115'000 move opening book from my opening database for it. Peter will first have to check my new code for compatibility issues with Linux, so it may take a while for this new version to appear on Peter's website. The book should be virtually error-free and worth the wait.
