I spent a couple of hours translating some of my Delphi code into “C”. Everything seems to be working well. Hopefully I should be able to start generating moves soon. Based on my past experience, once you get to the stage where you can make and unmake moves the pace of development picks up; it starts to get interesting and the addictive nature of computer chess programming sucks you in.
I’m certainly enjoying the Microsoft Visual C++ Express IDE. It’s a well put together system – and it seems super stable.
