Bruce as in Bruce Moreland? Because he COMPLETELY rewrote all the gnuchess code he borrowed to start with. He sent me this code years ago to take a look to see what I thought. He came up with a different and unique way of generating moves. His code is actually clean. And it looks nothing like gnuchessx. That's the idea one is supposed to "grasp" in this process... Nothing wrong with using a program as a starting point, so long as it gets completely re-done as you slowly develop your own approach and new ideas. And EVERY program has lots of new ideas...
My statement parrots what Bruce has said, and he DID say he rewrote EVERYTHING. So I am not sure exactly what point you are trying to make above. There was NO gnuchess source in ferret, he did say he rewrote everything, His web page seems to say exactly the same thing. So where are you trying to go here???
