I looked at your program in the past and I understood most of it.

I need functions for things that I do several times.
I thought to use functions for things like checking if a move is legal and
generating moves(it is not important if I use a function for generating the
initial position) but probably it is a better idea to start with defining the
main only by undefined functions and only after it to design the functions.

I did it in the wrong way because I like to check after adding some lines if I
have no mistakes(I prefer to discover them as soon as possible) but I think that
it is better to add empty functions to check if I can compile and run my program
and get the expected results.
