Play

You can't really play against Bobby yet, if you want to play a proper game try Chess.jl. However, you can compute the perft from any valid position. In the case of the starting position

julia> using Bobby

julia> b = Bobby.setBoard();

julia> pt = Bobby.perft(b, 5);

julia> pt.nodes

5-element Array{Int64,1}:
      20
     400
    8902
  197281
 4865609

You can also import the position from its FEN

julia> b = Bobby.loadFen("r3k2r/p1ppqpb1/bn2pnp1/3PN3/1p2P3/2N2Q1p/PPPBBPPP/R3K2R w KQkq - 0 0");

julia> Bobby.plainPrint(b)
