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.
