CONTENTS AND INSTALLATION
- README.md (this file)
- xskak.tex, xskak.pdf (the main documentation file)
- some files needed to typeset the documentation
Run TeX/LaTeX on xskak.ins to unpack the dtx.
Put the three extracted files in tex/latex/xskak/.
The dtx-file doesn't contain any documentation. So running LaTeX on it makes no sense!
Put the other files in doc/latex/xskak/
Update the filename database
The main point of xskak is to save informations about a chess game for later use e.g. to loop through a game to make an animated board. It also extend the input that the parsing commands can handle and offer an interface to define and switch between indefinite levels of styles.
xskak uses some primitives of eTeX. It needs version 1.4 of skak, a recent version of chessfss and xkeyval, version 1.5 of chessboard (which in turns needs xifthen and pgf).
