Hi Adam,

Thanks for spotting this error. Your analysis has helped me to fix it. 
I have uploaded the change to the software repository, but it will take
some time to release a new version.

In gnuchess 6.2.2, the -a command-line option doesn't work properly: it
ought to compile the book and then quit, but it leaves the user sitting
at the gnuchess prompt instead of quitting.

>From a quick look at the code, this seems to be because the loop at the
bottom of main() runs until (flags & QUIT), but the only thing that sets
QUIT is ForwardUserInputToEngine, which hasn't been used by the -a code.
