Home * Protocols

A Protocol is a formal description of digital message formats and the rules for exchanging those messages in or between computing systems. A protocol describes the syntax, semantics, and synchronization of communication. The nature of the communication, the actual data exchanged and any state-dependent behaviors are defined by a protocol specification, the rules can be expressed by algorithms and data structures.

Computer Chess Protocols

The aim of computer chess protocols is to define a standard to let a chess engine communicate with user- or graphical user interfaces (GUI), including a game- or match controller to let engines play automatically on a computer, inside a computer network or over the internet. Chess engines, usually instantiated as child process of the GUI application, use standard streams or pipelines to receive and respond ASCII strings as messages.
