I have started playing around with SCID and Arena to analyze my games and store interesting screenshots. I recently heard about the FEN notation which makes it conveninient to describe chess positions (previosuly I used to store screenshots of the board positions)
Now I know that SCID can read a single FEN string and set up the described position from that string but as far as I understand, it cannot read a file containing multiple FEN positions, and iterate through them.
What I would like to do is keep a database text file with interesting positions from my games or famous games or typical opening positions into a single file, one FEN string per line along with a short comment giving some more context and information about the position.
So the file would be something like
1b6/4pKn1/8/1nPkqp1R/2pr3p/3b1pp1/P3Qp2/2BRr3 # comment 1 1B6/4pKR1/3b3p/3QN2p/1Rb2k2/3PpN1P/2q1P3/8 # comment 2 1b6/4pN1K/2qpQ1p1/R4n1p/1Prkb3/N2p1pB1/3P1n1r/8 # comment 3 1B6/4pN1p/7p/3P1k2/2p5/4P2K/4P3/2Q4N # comment 4
Is there some analogous file format to do this? Maybe PGN itself is good enough? Can SCID handle such a file with multiple FEN notations? Or is there some other software for reading such files and allowing me to iterate through the various positions described in that file (and hopefully allowing me to make some edits)
