Emacs Chess

Emacs Chess is an object-oriented library written in Elisp for manipulating chess objects (games, plies, positions, etc.), and for displaying them. It supports a wide range of engine modules to use as move sources, and another set of modules for displaying the various kinds of chess objects. This allows chess.el to act as both a fully-featured chess client and a convenient library for writing analysis or training software (within Emacs).
