Journal Entry #1
Yesterday I thought a little about the variation promotion feature. Today I implemented it and got it going. Although there is refinement and extra testing to do. I had hoped that laying good foundations with a solid, STL based MoveTree implementation would make implementing features like this almost trivial. But I still don’t really “feel” the STL (for example I rely too much on array notation instead of iterators), and I’ve always found recursive structures and algorithms brainbenders. Still happy to see this working. Such a thing was only a dream in Tarrasch V1.
