I am looking to automate the process of scanning a database containing a number of games and identifying positions matching a certain set of criteria (certain pawn configuration and a certain +/- analysis by Rybka).  Is there a way to run Rybka from a command line where it is fed a position and returns its evaluation of the position?

"Is there a way to run Rybka from a command line where it is fed a position and returns its evaluation of the position?"

there is a tool called epd processor in Aquarium, i think it does what you want. You can give an input file containing epds and you get an output file with positions and evaluation.

All UCI engines can be run from a command line. Just click on Rybka 3.exe and you'll get a command prompt. Try commands like uci or "go depth 18" to see that it works.
http://download.shredderchess.com/div/uci.zip is the description of UCI protocol. So you can write a script that sends these commands to Rybka.

Regards,
Lukas

Hi Lukas,

can you test this?   Some work for the cluster

Why don't you do it with IDeA?

Weil ich NICHT Aquarium habe. (Wollte ürsprünglich auch R3 kaufen, aber bei den Bugs ...)

Man kann sicher auch mit einer x-beliebigen Spitzenengine in einer Langzeitanalyse zu Schlüssen kommen, die Frage war aber
ob RC die Positionen untersuchen möchte, und zu welchen Ergebnissen RC dann kommt.

(Some work for the cluster  Or for a strong centaure ...)
