Hi Leen,

I am maybe not understanding what exactly you want to accomplish.  As I
understand you wish to take a set of epd positions and reverse the roles of
white and black and also include the final part (bm...) etc.  The Permutator
application I think does exactly that.  As Dann mentioned in several posts ago
that for any given position it will not only exchange the roles for white and
black but also a left to right rotation and make all modifications to any opcode
that is affected by the new permutated positions.  The Permutator has taken a
file as large as 6,000,000 epd records and converted them to 24,000,000
positions.  Maybe I am just missing what you are trying to accomplish.
