  Description     : Library for probing Syzygy tablebases

Fathom is a stand-alone Syzygy tablebase probing tool.
The aims of Fathom are:
- To make it easy to integrate the Syzygy tablebases into existing
chess engines.
- To make it easy to create stand-alone applications that use the
Syzygy tablebases.

It's a reqirement for packaging some current chess engines as they
are embedding this probe tool (arasan, ethereal for exmaple).
