Schaum E-mail:| charles dot schaum at comcast dot net License:| Released under the LaTeX Project Public License v1.3c or later See:| http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt Short description: The nameauth package automates the formatting and indexing of names. This aids the use of a name authority and the process of textual reordering and revision without needing to retype name references. Files Distribution README This file nameauth.pdf Documentation examples.tex Some longer example macros from the documentation Makefile Automates building with GNU make 3.81 nameauth.dtx Documented LaTeX file containing both code and documentation Installation Unpack nameauth.zip in an appropriate directory. Note that the instructions below assume that you are using a *nix- compatible computer. If that is otherwise, you will need to modify these instructions to your needs. If you have a make utility compatible with GNU make you can type make inst to install the package into your $TEXMFHOME tree or make install to install the package into your $TEXMFLOCAL tree for all users. Manually, you can generate the package files. First you generate the installer driver, README, and style files, with a preliminary PDF: pdflatex -shell-escape -recorder -interaction=batchmode nameauth.dtx Next you generate the PDF with a table of contents and all cross-references validated, so that the index entries will not move: pdflatex --recorder --interaction=nonstopmode nameauth.dtx The next commands generate the glossary/index and final pdf file makeindex -q -s gglo.ist -o nameauth.gls nameauth.glo makeindex -q -s gind.ist -o nameauth.ind nameauth.idx pdflatex --recorder --interaction=nonstopmode nameauth.dtx pdflatex --recorder --interaction=nonstopmode nameauth.dtx Normally you create the following manual installation directories for user: $TEXMFHOME/source/latex/nameauth dtx file $TEXMFHOME/tex/latex/nameauth sty file $TEXMFHOME/doc/latex/nameauth pdf file, README, examples.tex and you create the following manual installation directories for local site: $TEXMFLOCAL/source/latex/nameauth dtx file $TEXMFLOCAL/tex/latex/nameauth sty file $TEXMFLOCAL/doc/latex/nameauth pdf file, README, examples.tex The above environment variables often are /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local and ~/texmf. Run mktexlsr with the appropriate level of permissions to complete the install. Testing notes: This packages works and builds with latex, lualatex, pdflatex, and xelatex. It can be used with makeindex and texindy. The documentation builds with lualatex, pdflatex, and xelatex, using makeindex. For testing, the make file permits one to change the typesetting engine on the command line. The default is to build the package and documentation with pdflatex. See the make file for details.

nameauth – Name authority mechanism for consistency in body text and index
Publications, that reference many names, require editors and proofreaders to track those names in the text and index. The package offers name authority macros that allow authors and compilers to normalize occurrences of names, variant name forms, and pen names in the text and index. This may help minimize writing and production time and cost.
