CONTENTS AND INSTALLATION

  • README.md (this file)
  • chess­board.dtx
  • chess­board.ins
  • chess­board.pdf

The best is to in­stall chess­board with the pack­age man­ager of your texsys­tem.

For man­ual in­stal­la­tion com­pile the .ins file. This will cre­ate chess­board.sty, chess­board-keys-main.sty chess­board-keys-pgf.sty and chess­board-pgf.sty. Move the four .sty in <texmf>/tex/la­tex/chess­board/ and up­date the file­name database. Put chess­board.pdf in doc/la­tex/chess­board/

The dtx-file doesn't con­tain any doc­u­men­ta­tion. So run­ning on it makes no sense!

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.
