Subject: UCI protocol question

Author: Jon Dart

I have taken a look at the UCI protocol (one description is
but one thing concerns me: it does not look like the GUI
sends the engine any indication of end of game, except the
"ucinewgame" command, which is apparently optional.

Currently under Winboard I get a "result" command with win,
loss or draw, and at that point I can save the complete game
to a log file and also do book learning based on the game result.

If I don't get a game result (win, loss, draw) I can't do
these things in general, although in some cases I will know
the result from the engine.
