I did not start from another program and modified it.

Small part of the data structure was copied from tscp and also some non chess
stuff like supporting winboard but
the move generator is a legal move geneator and use original structure
and Movei does not use the offset structure of tscp or mailbox structure.

Evaluation is also original and has nothing in common with tscp.

The common part with tscp is very little and I am sure that people will never
find strong evidence that Movei is a clone of another program.

I know that some programs(like trace) even started from tscp and
I do not claim that trace is a clone.

The discussion is not about you but about Fafis.
Some original source code of older version does not prove that the program is
not a clone.

I did not know.
The evidence convinced me.
