In all computer chess, castling is performed by moving the king two spaces to the side you want to castle on. Note that all squares between the rook and king must be empty. Also the rook and king must not have moved yet. This is also the rule for castling in official chess tournaments - a player is required to castle by moving the king first. Castling is seen as a move that the king does, not a move that the rook does.
