WHAT IS OMNIPERFT?

   Perft is a debbuging function for testing the move generator
   and move making/unmaking routines of chess engines.
   A more detailed description: http://chessprogramming.wikispaces.com/perft

   Unfortunately most perft utilities only support standard chess, so anyone
   developing an engine for Chess960, Capablanca chess, Capablanca Random chess
   or Gothic chess is pretty much out of luck when it comes to verifying their
   perft results.

   OmniPerft is just like any other perft utility, with the exception that
   it supports every 8x8 and 10x8 chess variants of any significance. The user
   can just enter a FEN or X-FEN string for any supported variant, run perft
   and get the results.
