I am working on a chess player-rating system based on engine evaluations. As part of this I would like to extract evaluation data from Stockfish for the top 10 moves in a given set of positions.
Ideally I would like to be able to loop this from my program, so something like:
while i < 1000:
#'evaluate' returns a list of top moves with their centipawn evaluations.
choices = evaluate(positions[i]);
In the above 'positions' would be a vector of chess positions in FEN format. I have looked around and there are some solutions for this using the chess library in Python, but I would really like to do this from within cpp. Is there any relatively trouble-free way to do this?
