Displays a move hint from the chess engine.


Displays a list of possible moves from the chess engine’s opening book. The first column gives moves, the second column gives one possible response for each move, and the third column shows the number of lines in the book that include the move from the first column. If you select this option and nothing happens, the engine is out of its book or does not support the book command.
