Hi, I am still trying to learn about the Alpha-Beta algorithm.  I have one more
question.  Thanks to all the people that helped me before:

With the Alpha-Beta algorithm does the program generate the entire tree and then
score the remaining positions when there has been a cut-off, or when there is a
cut-off does it not generate unnecessary positions at all?
