I have just finished the first
version of a LaTeX style to print out positions and matches.
The main features are:
* Boards produced with a special font made with metafont, no
inclusion of Postscript files needed (i.e. every dvi previewer
should be able to display the boards).
* Two different environments for single positions and complete
* Board layout customizable in both environments.
* Automatic generation of the current board at arbitrary places in
the game environment. Only the moves have to be entered, the state
of the board is maintained internally by the style.
I have uploaded my LaTeX package to ftp.dante.de as a CTAN submission
and was told that it's installed under
It should be available on every CTAN Server (these are if I am right
informed: ftp.dante.de, ftp.shsu.edu and ftp.tex.ac.uk)
