A computer program depends strongly on data structures processed by it. For time optimization it is often sufficient to change only the data structures. There are 5 parts to a typical chess program: Game manager, legal moves generator, evaluation function, openings library and algorithm for endings. Arrays play an important role in game managing, generating proper moves and evaluating the position. A properly chosen array form improves computer chess.
