How to record a Position

A simple way to record a position is to note down all the pieces with the squares on which they are placed.

For example the Starting Position would be recorded as below:
White: Ke1, Qd1, Ra1, Rh1, Bc1, Bf1, Nb1, Ng1, a2, b2, c2, d2, e2, f2, g2, h2
Black: Ke8, Qd8, Ra8, Rh8, Bc8, Bf8, Nb8, Ng8, a7, b7, c7, d7, e7, f7, g7, h7

Another popular way is the Forsyth Notation
