This is a port of ggtl (generic game tree library), sl (stack libaray)
and opt (command line options library) to the AmigaOS. I have ported the
examples Othello and Connect4 to Intuition. The source code is released
under GPL and is included. See http://brautaset.org/projects/ggtl/
for the original Linux release.

What is GGTL?
-------------
GGTL (Generic Game-Tree Library) is a library aiming to ease the
creation of computer games. It is written in ANSI C and released under
the GNU GPL for maximum portability and accessibility. Ease of use was
one of the main areas of focus when creating GGTL.

GGTL is targeted in particular at two-player zero-sum
perfect-information games. A zero-sum game is any game where an
advantage for one player results in an equally large disadvantage for
the opponent. Perfect-information means that the state of the game will
not change while the player is taking time to chose her move, i.e.
players alternate taking moves.

Examples of games where GGTL can be used are Chess, Othello, Checkers
and Go. For these games, GGTL provides game-tree search utilising
MiniMax search with Alpha-Beta pruning (briefly explained below, in case
this means nothing to you). It also automatically provides history and
unlimited undo for any games it is used with. Additionally, GGTL can
write game information to a file and restore from it with no loss of
history (full undo-capabilities and history is available on resumed
programs too).

GGTL can be useful even for games that do not meet all of the above
criteria. For many such games, GGTL can still provide history and
undo-facilities as well as well as the ability to save and resume.

Differences between Amiga port and original code
------------------------------------------------
It isn't a shared library. The makefile just creates object (*.o) files
which you should link wih your game source code.
GGTL uses a function from timer device. This means you must open the timer
device and set TimerBase, otherwise the program will crash. (see example code
for Othello and Connect4.)

I have used GCC3.3. The source is ANSI C. It should compile with other
Amiga C compilers, but I can't guarantee.
