Summary: In this paper we introduce UBCSAT, a new implementation and experimentation environment for Stochastic Local Search (SLS) algorithms for SAT and MAX-SAT. Based on a novel triggered procedure architecture, UBCSAT provides implementations of numerous well-known and widely used SLS algorithms for SAT and MAX-SAT, including GSAT, WalkSAT, and SAPS; these implementations generally match or exceed the efficiency of the respective original reference implementations. Through numerous reporting and statistical features, including the measurement of run-time distributions, UBCSAT facilitates the advanced empirical analysis of these algorithms. New algorithm variants, SLS algorithms, and reporting features can be added to UBCSAT in a straightforward and efficient way. UBCSAT is implemented in \(C\) and runs on numerous platforms and operating systems; it is publicly and freely available at http://www.satlib.org/ubcsat.
