CTAN sub­mis­sion – skak ver­sion 1.0 - chess type­set­ing the easy way

----- For­warded mes­sage from Tor­ben Hoff­mann ----- Upload: skak2.zip Node: ftp.dante.de Where to go: re­place the old skak pack­age in fonts/skak Li­cens­ing con­di­tions: LPPL (La­tex Project Public Li­cence) This soft­ware is copy­right but you are granted a li­cense which gives you, the ``user'' of the soft­ware, le­gal per­mis­sion to copy, dis­tribute, and/or mod­ify the soft­ware. How­ever, if you mod­ify the soft­ware and then dis­tribute it (even just lo­cally) you must change the name of the soft­ware to avoid con­fu­sion. Sum­mary: This is ver­sion 1.0 of the skak pack­age - it dif­fers from the ear­lier non-num­bered re­leases in the fol­low­ing as­pects: 1. The doc­u­men­ta­tion has been split into three doc­u­ments: * A short user guide. * An ex­am­ple of how to use the skak pack­age. * A ref­er­ence man­ual list­ing all avail­able com­mands. 2. Some mi­nor bugs have been re­moved - thanks to all that have con­tacted me re­gard­ing these sub­tle er­rors. Best re­gards and happy chess type­set­ting. /Tor­ben ----- End for­warded mes­sage ----- Thanks for the up­load. I in­stalled it as sug­gested re­plac­ing the old ver­sion in CTAN:/tex-archive/fonts/skak/ Rein­hard Zierke for the CTAN team

skak – Fonts and macros for type­set­ting chess games

This pack­age pro­vides macros and fonts in for­mat which can be used to type­set chess games us­ing PGN, and to show di­a­grams of the cur­rent board in a doc­u­ment. The pack­age builds on work by Piet Tute­laers — the main nov­elty is the use of PGN for in­put in­stead of the more cum­ber­some co­or­di­nate no­ta­tion (g1f3 be­comes the more read­able Nf3 in PGN).

An Adobe Type 1 im­ple­men­ta­tion of skak's fonts is avail­able as pack­age skaknew; an al­ter­na­tive chess no­ta­tional scheme is avail­able in pack­age tex­mate, and a gen­eral mech­a­nism for se­lect­ing chess fonts is pro­vided in chess­fss.
