where can I find an opening file, easy to parse, for my chess engine?

Get any PGN files collection. For parsing them, _either_ look hints for it
from some open-source code, i.e. Crafty, but don't forget to ask
permission before any 'copy-pasting' _or_ implement a parser of your own.
Notice that you don't have to parse everything, "Result"-field, converting
SAN moves to coordinate-algebraic and noticing when an individual game
ends should be enough.
