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.
