chessboard --- A package to print chessboards Version 1.7 Ulrike Fischer 2014 CHANGES 1.7: chessboard no longer loads amssymb (to avoid clashes) 1.6: Corrected some bugs. Added textfont key for text style. 1.5: Corrected some bugs. Added key getpiecelists. Adapted the package to xskak. 1.4: changed the code so that it work with xkeyval 2.5 1.3a: corrected a small bug 1.3:A lot of the pgf-code have been rewritten and extended. ATTENTION Upgrading to this version can change the look of existing documents. Notably two things can give problems: Since version 1.3 the value of the padding key affects much more objects (marks) in the pgf pictures. So it could be necessary to reset the padding. And the applycolor has changed its behaviour. It will now also affect the foreground picture. CONTENTS AND INSTALLATION - Readme (this file) - chessboard-scr.dtx - chessboard.ins - chessboard.pdf - chessboard.sty - chessboard-keys-main.sty - chessboard-keys-pgf.sty - chessboard-pgf.sty Move the four .sty in <texmf>/tex/latex/chessboard/. You can regenerate the .sty by runing TeX/LaTeX on chessboard.ins to unpack the dtx. The dtx-file doesn't contain any documentation. So running LaTeX on it makes no sense! Put chessboard.pdf in doc/latex/chessboard/ DOCUMENTATION chessboard.pdf. There isn't a source for the documentation as it use some local fonts and styles. DESCRIPTION This package offers commands to print chessboards. It can print partial boards, hide pieces and fields, color the boards and put various marks on the board. It has a lot of options to place pieces on the board. Using exotic pieces e.g. for fairy chess is possible. It can be used together with the newest version (1.4) of the skak package which you can find at CTAN and together with xskak. REQUIREMENTS chessboard uses some primitives of e\TeX. It needs a recent version of chessfss and xkeyval. It also needs the packages xifthen, tikz, pgfcore and pgfbaseshapes (from the pgf bundle), and - if run with latex - pst-node (from pstricks).
