Chess fonts and a chess style ----------------------------- (Version 1.2 / Febr. 1992) This is version 1.2 of my chessmacros for typesetting chess with LaTeX and/or TeX. This new version contains an improved chess style file (chess.sty) complete with documentation and example files. The documentation is the article as it will appear in TUGboat. You will also find examples of complete chess games and a list of all available Informator symbols in the directory `doc': - TUGboat.ltx TUGboat article (tugboat macros not included - TUGgame.ltx in this package) - tal.ltx Tal-Fisher in LaTeX - tal.tex Tal-Fisher in TeX - Kasparov.ltx Kasparov-Karpov in Informator style - Symbols.ltx Informator symbols in LaTeX - Symbols.tex Informator symbols in TeX - SchaakMaatje.ltx example of chess magazine (Dutch!) File CHANGES12 contains a summary of the differences between this version and version 1.1. The main differences are: a) improved plain TeX interface b) language support using the babel package from Johannes Braams c) nochess-environment replaces chess-environment d) font chessfig10 renamed into chessf10 (MSDOS) e) handling of promotion improved f) `en passant capture' bug solved g) added Informator symbols Note that b), c) and d) makes this version incompatible with the older versions. Read the file INSTALLATION how to upgrade from 1.1 to 1.2. For UNIX people I have added a Makefile: - make (generates the fonts and the documentation) --> change `localfont' into whatever your mode is (ex.: imagen) if localfont is not properly set at your system. The command: mf "\mode=localfont; input chess20" should generate a font suitable for your local printer. --> if you don't use a PostScript printer or don't use dvips you have to adapt the Makefile to your local situation - make install (installs the fonts and the style: check the path's!). Have a lot of chess writing and playing fun!
