In the UCI documentation, it says

  • mate x

    search for a mate in x moves

However, I believe this should say "search for mate in x plies", as plies are used in most of the protocol. I can not find any good documentation for this. Which way does it actually work?

  • Welcome to Chess.SE, and great questioin! Could you elaborate as to where in UCI documentation you found this? – Brandon_J Jan 24 at 2:28
  • The one here, in the section GUI to Engine (go mate <x>). – me' Jan 24 at 3:12
