    EPD2WB is a utility that allows you to run EPD test suites with Winboard engines. Specifically it works with Gerbil, but it is designed to work with others.

    The EPD2WB utility is included in source and executable form in the Gerbil download that you can get elsewhere on this page. If you download that, you'll get all of it.

    If you want to skip all the source code and just download an executable, or if you would like to view the EPD2WB "readme", click the appropriate link.
