Wappler, [1]
a chess program written by Thomas Mally in the early 90s, running on an IBM PC under MS-DOS with an own GUI. The aim of Wrappler was to be a tactical program. It had a rudimentary evaluation, and used a brute-force search with iterative deepening, heavily relying on check and passed pawn extensions. A layer of 4 plies quiescence was completed by a sequence capturing on the last destination square [2].
