A point I forgot to make:
Though it's implied by the program in my previous message, it's good to stress
that the simple formula:
$m*$n+4-int(($m+2)*($n+2)/5);
works for any board where both dimensions >= 16
In particular it works for all square boards ($m == $n) with size >= 7 except for 13 x 13. So you only need a table with a few exceptions, the rest of the square boards can be directly calculated
