Glaurung is a free chess engine.
It is not a complete chess program, but uses the UCI
(Universal Chess Interface)
for chess engines as its communication protocol. Therefore to play
against the engine,
you either need to use a UCI capable interface (such as
knights) or an xboard adaptor such as polyglot.
Glaurung is a very strong chess engine, finishing 4th
place at internatonal ChessWar X.
