Creating a Chess Player, Part 2: Chess 0.5162
Part 1 of this series ("Creating a Chess Player", October 1978 BYTE page 182) was an essay on human and computer skill. This month and next we present Chess 0.5, a program written in Pascal by Larry Atkin, who is coauthor with David Slate of the world champioship computer chess program Chess 4.6. This program is readily adaptable to presonal computers having Pascal systems such as the UCSD Pascal project software. Part 4 of the series will conclude with some thoughts about computer chess strategy.
