What does it do?
Exact bearoff calculates the winning chances, equity and doubling decisions of bearoff positions in backgammon, for up to about 9 checkers on each side (depending on your computer) or all checkers on the first four points.
The program starts by computing all possible bearoff positions for up to a certain number of checkers. This takes a long time, but after that every position will be stored on hard-disk and can be used for instantaneous lookup.
