Merlin [1]

Merlin,
a chess program by Jeff Rollason whose development started in 1976. Initially written in Fortran for mainframe computers. Merlin already focused on a Swapping Off Material Analyzer (SOMA) approach of the whole board, which was later refined in Rollason's Shogi program Shotest [2] and his later chess program Treebeard [3]. The micro-processor program Merlin X, basically a Z80 Assembly port to run on a Nascom 2, played the 4th European Microcomputer Chess Championship 1983 in London with 4 out of 9.
