Thanks again, Jim Hefferon St Michael's College ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: TeXmate2 Author's name: Federico Garcia Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/texmate Summary description: Comprehensive chess annotation. Version 2 License type: lppl Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
This is the second version of TeXmate. Many refinements and new tools. Now it works in conjunction with skak and thus follows the game as it is typeset. That makes it able to diagram the current position automatically. For chess fonts it uses the chessfss system. (The original version is still available in /obsolete/macros/latex/contrib/texmate.)

mate – Comprehensive chess annotation in

mate formats chess games from very simple ascii input. The clean “1. e4 e5; 2. Nf3 Nc6; 3. Bb5 a6” will produce the same results as the sloppier “1 e4 e5; Nf3 Nc6 3.. Bb5 a6”. The resulting format is fully customizable.

There are 4 levels of commentary: 1 is the main game, 2-3 are commentaries. Each has its fonts, punctuation marks, etc., and these are also customizable. The package includes a tool for the creation of diagrams.

The package works in conjunction with skak to produce diagrams of the current position automatically. For chess fonts, the package uses the chessfss system.
