winboard troubleshooting

Postby nak3c » Mon Sep 23, 2013 3:05 am

Hi all Ive reached the point in writing my chess program that its time to connect to winboard. Im getting an error of the sort "second chess program (myprogram) exited unexpectedly". I dont know how to have winboard save the errors; has anyone out there written an engine and faced this same error? any quick trouble shooting tips, perhaps its something simple (although I appear to flush the output often enough which I read is sometimes a quick fix.) Thanks

I figured out my own problem, for those having the same issue; you can't compile your code with cygwin gcc and run with winboard even if the program has access to the cygwin.dll; you can however compile with gcc-3 -mno-cygwin in cygwin and run your program with winboard. Im also finding that compiling this way slows down the program and ill probably have to find a good 64 bit c compiler for windows.
