And what about the situation where the pawn move revealed a check on the enemy king? Even if an opposing pawn could theoretically capture e.p., this would also not be legal. Would you omit the e.p. square in this case as well from the FEN notation?

FEN says nothing about the legality of moves for the next player, and I personally think it should remain that way Wink


I think the right answer is that an EP target is given only when an EP capture is possible. The pinned pawn issue doesn't matter to me as much as the original case. But I can handle it however you throw it at me so it really doesn't matter. Same problem with PGN games. Too many screw up castling and use zero-zero (among others). Some put a space after 21. Ne5, others just produce 21.Ne5. I've made my parsing handle these odd cases over the years to avoid confusion when it would fail on a PGN read...

But following the standard would be nice, IMHO...
