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 xskak.pdf in

Update the filename database


xskak.pdf. There isn't a source for the documentation as it use some
local fonts and styles.


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 e\TeX. 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).

xskak – An ex­ten­sion to the skak pack­age for chess type­set­ting

Xskak, as its prime func­tion, saves in­for­ma­tion about a chess game for later use (e.g., to loop through a game to make an an­i­mated board). The pack­age also ex­tends the in­put that the pars­ing com­mands can han­dle and of­fers an in­ter­face to de­fine and switch be­tween in­def­i­nite lev­els of styles.
