Then about our program Bookbuilder:

Bookbuilder has two unique features, and is
the only chess program in the world which has these features combined:
1) the program always tries to play the 'best' openingbook move (eg 1 d4!)
(depending on end evaluations, eg. with a certain 'engine'
other chess programs try to find the 'best' move with percentages/statistics,
but this 'obviously' cannot be very accurate)

2) With an 'interface' the Bookbuilder output can be used as book
for a chess program, thus providing ideal (book) training conditions
