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.
