The Wilbez Benchmark


The Wilkinson / Bezzi Advanced Warrior Benchmark (Wilbez)

This batch-file and collection of Core War warriors are intended to allow you to calculate a benchmark for your own warriors. To do this you require PMars and MTS. At the Ms-Dos prompt, enter
wilbez filename
replacing filename with the name of the file containing your warrior. The redcode file *must* have the extension .red for this program to work, though you can always adjust the batch-file to suit your need. Your warrior then fights 200 rounds against each of the 13 benchmark warriors. This takes between 35 minutes and an hour on a 486sx25, depending on the warrior being tested. Once this is done, a list is displayed (and also saved to a file) showing how your warrior fared. To calculate the warriors actual Wilbez value, divide its score by 26. It is quite simple to change the number of rounds fought if you have a faster / slower computer, by altering the parameters passed into PMars via the batch file. Should you alter this, you must also alter the number to divide the score by accordingly. I.e. for 100 rounds each, divide by 13. For 400 rounds, divide by 52.
