14. Tactical reading

The process of visualizing potential moves done by you and your opponent to learn the result of different moves is called "reading". GNU Go does three distinct types of reading: tactical reading which typically is concerned with the life and death of individual strings, Owl reading which is concerned with the life and death of dragons, and life reading which attempts evaluate eye spaces. In this Chapter, we document the tactical reading code, which is in `engine/reading.c'. For a summary of the reading functions see See section 14.8 Reading Functions.
