Subject: Nalimov's EGTB's

  Recently I posted a message asking for some kind of explanation on
implementing Nalimov's EGTB's in chess programs.
  I was suggested to read probe.txt from Hyatt's ftp and some chess programs'
  I'm starting to believe that I'm too stupid, because most programmers include
EGTB's with no problem, and I'm having a hard time trying to understand how to
do it. If that is the case, just tell me "you're too stupid to do the job" and
I'll give up :)
  Otherwise, if anyone has written some step-by-step guide, I'd even pay for it.
Eugene told me he has no time now to help me, and probe.txt is too vague for me
(not explicit enough). Also, I've seen no program that works the way probe.txt
suggests, which confuses me more. And all those programs are bitboard-based,
which makes it more difficult for me to uderstand what they're doing (I'm 0x88).
  So, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, help me.
