Document class for producing books for the Teubner Verlag, Germany ================================================================== 1. Introduction --------------- I have programmed the "bgteubner.cls" document class by order of the Teubner Verlag (which was renamed via Vieweg+Teubner to Springer Vieweg), Wiesbaden, Germany. This has been done to ensure that books of this publisher have a unique layout. The publisher has allowed me to distribute the document class with auxilliary files and documentation freely. Unfortunately, most of the documentation is only available in German. Since the document class is intended to generate a unique layout, many things (layout etc.) are fixed and cannot be altered by the used. If you want to use the document class for another purpose than publishing with the Teubner Verlag, this may arrise unwanted restrictions (For instance, the document class provides only two paper sizes: DIN A-5 and 17cm x 24cm; only two font families are supported: Times and European Computer Modern). If you want to adapt some files you have to rename them before, according to the LPPL license. Please do it also according to the additional remarks in the files bgteucls.dtx and bgteubner.cls. When you produce documents using this document class, the PDF file gets a "Creator" entry that includes the class name and the name of the Teubner Verlag. If you modify a copy of this class, these texts have to be preserved. I cannot forbid you (according to LPPL) to overwrite this entry in the document itself. But please don't do it since the publisher has asked me to preserve that entry. The document class needs some additional packages, partly relatively new ones, partly packages that are not installed on most TeX installations. A list of needed packages is contained in usefiles.txt. Depending on the class options, not all packages are needes; but I will not specify it in more detail. If you recognize that many packages of your installation are too old it may be worth to install a new distribution. The German documentation files bgteubner-17x24-times.pdf and bgteubner-17x24-cm.pdf describe how to use the document class. In addition, they include installation instructions for the TeXLive 8 distribution. 2. Files in the distribution and installation --------------------------------------------- The distribution of the bgteubner bundle depends on how you got it (did you get it from CTAN or as CD by the Teubner-Verlag?). 2.1 CTAN version ---------------- The bundle has following directories: doc/ Documentation (in German): bgteubner-17x24-times.pdf Author guidelines (Times font), bgteucls.pdf Documentation of the document class itself (only experts). doc/src/ Source code of the documentation. hhsubfigure/ Source code of the hhsubfigure package. source/ Source code of the document class. To install the document class and the auxilliary files, you have to change to the source/ directory. Run LaTeX on "bgteucls.ins". This produces a couple of files that have to be copied to special directories. If your TeX installation complies to the TDS the targets for theses files are: $TEXMFLOCAL/tex/latex/bgteubner/bgteubner.cls $TEXMFLOCAL/tex/latex/ptmxcomp/ptmxcomp.sty $TEXMFLOCAL/makeindex/bgteubner/bgteubner.ist $TEXMFLOCAL/makeindex/bgteubner/bgteuglo.ist $TEXMFLOCAL/makeindex/bgteubner/bgteuglochar.ist $TEXMFLOCAL/bibtex/bst/bgteubner/bgteupln.bst $TEXMFLOCAL/bibtex/bst/bgteubner/bgteupln2.bst $TEXMFLOCAL/bibtex/bst/bgteubner/bgteuabbr.bst $TEXMFLOCAL/bibtex/bst/bgteubner/bgteuabbr2.bst If you use Unix you simply may use make install for everything. In addition, the hhsubfigure package has to be installed. Therefore, run latex on hhsubfigure.ins in the hhsubfigure/ directory. Then, copy hhsubfigure.sty to the $TEXMFLOCAL/tex/latex/hhsubfigure/ directory. Since usage of the hhsubfigure and the subfigure.sty packages is identical, refer to the subfigure documentation. Surely, more needed packages are not installed on your system. Please have a look to usefiles.txt to find out which you still need. You can download them from the CTAN servers. 2.2 Teubner CD version ---------------------- If you have a CD of the Teubner Verlag, you have following directories: doc/ Documentation (in German): bgteubner-17x24-cm.pdf Author guidelines (European Computer Modern font), bgteubner-17x24-times.pdf Author guidelines (Times font), bgteubner-17x24-mathtime.pdf Author guidelines (Times font with MathTime mathematics), bgteucls.pdf Documentation of the document class itself (only experts). doc/src/ Source code of the documentation. hhsubfigure/ Source code of the hhsubfigure package. source/ Source code of the document class. pakete/ Classes and packages that are not contained in TeXLive 8 or that are too old there. alt/ Old versions of the document class. Since it is unlikely that you get a CD by the Teubner Verlag an don't speak German, there is no separat installation guide here. 3. Update --------- If you are updating from an older version, you can find out the changes in the file source/ChangeLog or at the end of the file doc/bgteucls.pdf. Many spacings have been changed from version 1.07 to 1.10. If you are nearly ready with producing a document you better postpone the update. From version 1.14 to 1.21, some margins had to be changed in the important(*) and longimportant(*) environments. Thus, changes of the line and page breaks are possible there. 4.
