Schaum E-mail:| charles dot schaum at comcast dot net License:| Released under the LaTeX Project Public License 1.3c or later See:| http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt Short description: The nameauth package automates the correct formatting and indexing of names for professional writing. This aids the use of a name authority and the editing process 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 Manual Installation Download the package from www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/nameauth Unpack nameauth.zip in an appropriate directory. Note that the instructions below assume that you are using a kind of Unix, BSD, Linux, Mac, or Cygwin under Microsoft Windows. If you have a different operating environment, you will need to modify these instructions to your own needs. Please be aware that this package is designed to be stored in a UTF-8 encoded text file and built in a Unicode-capable environment. 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. The make process normally renames the README.txt file created from the dtx file to just README by using mv (move/rename utility in the *nix userland). Windows distributions of TeX and LaTeX often keep the txt file as well. Run mktexlsr with the appropriate level of permissions to complete the install. Testing notes: This package and documentation work and build with latex, lualatex, pdflatex, and xelatex. It can be used with makeindex/texindy. 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.
