Abstract: CHEKMO II is a chess playing program which will run on
any PDP-8 family computer. The program will play either the white
pieces or the black pieces, and will play and accept all classes of legal
moves, including castling both short and long, en passant pawn captures,
and pawn promoting moves to any legal promotion piece. The program
prints out its moves m Algebraic Notation, and accepts moves using

Included in the command structure of the program are commands
which allow you to input board positions using Forsyth Notation, and get
a printout of the board at your terminal.
