I've got a (simple) question regarding the UCI options and their current values:
I start my engine (e. g. Stockfish).
The console opens and I enter "uci" and press [Enter]. As a result, I get a list of options which the engine supports, with their min and max value, their type and their default setting. For example: option name Ponder type check default false
Let's say I change the following option: setoption name ponder value true
As I don't get an error, I expect that this option has been switched to true. But, when I now enter "uci" once more, I get the following output: option name Ponder type check default false
As you can see, it is exactly the same output that I already got when starting the engine and entered "uci" the very first time. I expect to see this: option name Ponder type check default false current value true
or something similar. Note: "current value true" was added by me, just to show what I expect.
Regardless which option I change, I never can query the current value. Why?
