Tim, first of all: Thanks for this wonderful program. It is the best program for studying tsumego. Do you have any plans to release a Pocket PC version of it?
TimK: I don't have plans to currently, but I would be willing to help anyone who wanted to work on that. I don't have any experience with Java on PocketPC.
Velobici: TimK, thank you very much for writing GoGrinder. I have found it be a very useful study tool. I do have two questions: How should I format an SGF file for Status? style problems? The first problem in James Davies book Life and Death is an example:
Actually, this problem illustrated several issues:
- Either White or Black may move first
- The correct move is a pass
TimK: The way I usually handle this is to create two problems - one with Black to play, one with White. If I want to include a pass/tenuki as a possible choice, I mark a point A, and in the description of the problem put something like "A=tenuki".
Tim, How about a Java version for the cell phone? :) Then I could use GoGrinder anywhere!
