Well, any open source Go program should be able to do the job,
in principle. But it's also a little unclear for me exactly what
are you asking for. In principle, the algorithm is
for point in board.empty_points():
if board.play(point) is ok:
# Not a suicide or ko violation
...but I guess you are asking for something more/else?
(If you are interested in Python, there are various Go implementations
in it. I'm working on https://github.com/pasky/michi/blob/master/michi.py)
