FCP, (Forth Chess Program)
a chess engine by Ian Osgood, written as an exercise in learning the Forth programming language, originally derived from Tom Kerrigan's simple chess program TSCP 1.71. At the time it was started, there were no other chess programs in Forth which used modern search techniques. FCP retains the values of small footprint (< 64K) and code clarity. Normally, FCP is used from the Forth command line. There are also drivers for working in XBoard and running EPD test suites.


Although FCP started with a nearly identical evaluation function as an aid to detecting bugs when porting from C to Forth, FCP diverged from TSCP in many ways [1]:
