that notation places a piece on the board so if I want to replace that piece with a number does fen allow that?
is there a way to number all 64 squares? So all squares have a number on them
A number on them? Yea, there's lots of ways. Here's one: 01-02-03-04-05-06-07-08 09-10-11-12-13-14-15-16 17-18-19-20-21-22-23-24 25-26-27-28-29-30-31-32 33-34-35-36-37-38-39-40 41-42-43-44-45-46-47-48 49-50-51-52-53-54-55-56 57-58-59-60-61-62-63-64Here's another: 81-82-83-84-85-86-87-8871-72-73-74-75-76-77-7861-62-63-64-65-66-67-6851-52-53-54-55-56-57-5841-42-43-44-45-46-47-4831-32-33-34-35-36-37-3821-22-23-24-25-26-27-2811-12-13-14-15-16-17-18
(file, row)In this numbering format, square 84, for example, is the 8th row, 4th file, from White's point of view.Though as Stephen mentioned, it's hard to beat algebraic.
Some great advice above but nobody's actually answered the OP's question: Once you've dragged all the pieces to their proper places on the board in Position Setup mode (Analysis Board-Editor) then click on the Copy FEN To Clipboard button & you can copy & paste the FEN string anywhere, such as a text-editor like Notepad.
That was the first thing I tried, prior to starting this thread in early March. Prior to the 3/26/12 site update (and I didn't notice if it happened right away, A LOT of tweaks trickled in later) that feature was not offered. Which didn't make a lot of sense, so it seemed like an obvious fix when they did the update.
I didn't know that - explains everything !
The link in this related post takes a FEN string to convert it to a diagram using a font: http://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/creating-chess-diagrams
Hi.... seems at last I could found people talking about fen!
I need to make an string of fen´s using a game data base.
The only progrma I found to do it is pgn2fen..... but it seems to works wrongly :-( Do not show me the position after the last move
It's not very clear what exactly you want to do - could you explain in a little more detail please?
A FEN (string) is a string of printable characters, describing a specific board position but without any moves list; whereas you say you want to create a string of FENs - is that correct?
I have always wanted to know the answer to this question....
How long is a FEN string ?
It depends on where the scissors cuts it.
(The technical but boring answer is that the length is variable.)
