Date: June 18, 2003 8:21:06 PM CEST
A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and should make its way to your favorite mirror in the next day or two. Thanks for the upload, Jim ================================================================= The following information was provided by our fellow contributor. Name of contribution: igo Author's name: �tienne Dupuis Location on CTAN: fonts/igo Summary description: Fonts and macro to typeset Go diagrams License type: lppl Announcement text given by the contribution's author: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- The package igo is based on go, a package written in 1991 by Hanna Kolodziejska which provides typesetting facilities for Go games and positions. Although igo contains roughly the same commands as the original package and uses the fonts created by Kolodziejska, it has (hopefully) been improved by 1. Using command names less likely to conflict with standard AMS package's; 2. Allowing different board sizes to be used; 3. Understanding a standardized notation for board coordinates; 4. Providing the facility to work on more than one board. Moreover, a few commands were reworked to define positions or game sequences more conveniently. - - ----------------------------------------------------------------------

igo – Fonts and macro to typeset Go diagrams

This package is based on the package go written in 1991 by Hanna Kołodziejska which provides typesetting facilities for Go games and positions.

It uses command names less likely to conflict with standard AMS packages. It allows different board sizes to be used. It understands a standardized notation for board coordinates. And it provides a facility to work on more than one board. Moreover, a few commands were reworked to define positions or game sequences more conveniently.
