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.
