LaTeX macros for use in TUGboat =============================== See the TUGboat web pages at http://tug.org/TUGboat for upcoming deadlines, tips on writing articles, access to online issues, etc. We greatly appreciate new article submissions! The files in this directory generate the TUGboat article class ltugboat.cls, which should be used for all articles nowadays -- both proceedings and regular issues. These macros are supported. Feel free to write to us. The TUGboat staff <firstname.lastname@example.org> Installation and use: ===================== Usually you can get the tugboat packages through your distribution. But if you want to install it by hand from CTAN, its directory there (see http://ctan.org/pkg/tugboat) has three files containing TeX code: tugboat.dtx -- the source for the macros tugboat.ins -- the docstrip instructions ltubguid.ltx -- documentation for the macros (published in http://tug.org/TUGboat/tb17-3/tb52guid.pdf, but much updated since) other files are ltugbib.bst -- a BibTeX style for ltugboat.cls's Harvard-cite capabilities ltubguid.pdf -- browsable user documentation tugboat.pdf -- browsable implementation documentation Processing the .ins file produces: ltugboat.cls -- for preparing any TUGboat article ltugproc.cls -- (obsolete) ltugboat.sty -- The usual `obsolete file' warning ltugproc.sty -- The usual `obsolete file' warning ltugcomn.sty -- Used when processing tugboat.dtx for its documentation content The procedure for using the macros should therefore be: process the .ins file move the .sty and .cls to "somewhere LaTeX will search" move the .bib to "somewhere BibTeX will search" move the browsable documentation to "somewhere texdoc will search" On a TDS installation, common search locations are: $TEXMF/tex/latex/tugboat (for .sty, .cls) $TEXMF/bibtex/bst/tugboat (for .bst) $TEXMF/doc/latex/tugboat (for .pdf) ($TEXMF being a pointer to the root of a TDS tree, preferably a local one, to avoid tangling with future releases of your TeX distribution.) `User-level' documentation is provided in file ltubguid.pdf, which is a revised version of a TUGboat paper. The documented source of the macros is also provided in readily readable form, as tugboat.pdf. By the way, tugboat.sty, tugproc.sty, and tugboat.cmn are the plain TeX files for TUGboat and not included here (see the separate tugboat-plain package).
