Run "playchess(3)" to start a game with search tree depth = 3
Then choose:
(1)-for playing WHITE against Computer
(2)-for playing BLACK against Computer
(3)-Computer plays against itself.
or alternatively type "playchess(4,3)" to start a game with search tree depth = 4 and computer against itself.
I tried to keep it "minimalistic", so strength isn't great. There is only console input and output. No special strategies e.g. for opening or end game situations are implemented.
The function for evaluating the search tree is very simple, so the program sometimes surprises with weird moves. Choosing a more sophisticated evaluation function would most likely improve strength and eliminate weird actions.
