============================================================== Notre Dame's Dissertation document class by Sameer Vijay that adheres to the University of Notre Dame guidelines published in Spring 2004. Please send any improvements/suggestions to : Shari Hill, Graduate Reviewer. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org ============================================================== This is a dissertation class file for the University of Notre Dame, provided by Sameer Vijay and also can be used for formatting any thesis as well. This classfile can possibly be used by students with their own TeX installation and as such does not need to be installed in a central file location. One can install them in a local TEXMF tree on a unix home dir or Windoze mikTeX installation, or must be in a path searchable by LaTeX. EXTRACTING ---------- To obtain the nddiss2e class file, process the 'nddiss2e.ins' through LaTeX. $ latex nddiss2e.ins This will create 2 files - nddiss2e.cls (the classfile) and template.tex (a template file) To obtain the documentation for the nddiss2e class, use the following commands: $ latex nddiss2e.dtx $ latex nddiss2e.dtx $ makeindex -s gglo.ist -o nddiss2e.gls nddiss2e.glo $ makeindex -s gglo.ist -o nddiss2e.ind nddiss2e.idx $ latex nddiss2e.dtx This will create a dvi file (nddiss2e.dvi) which is the documentation for the nddiss2e classfile. If you've pdfTeX installed as well, you can now use the following command to generate a pdf documentation. $ pdflatex nddiss2e.dtx Alternatively, one can use the included `process.sh' shell script to carry out all the above steps. $ sh process.sh TEXMF TREE ---------- As mentioned earlier, it is possible to install this class in a local TEXMF tree. For eg. in a unix environment, it can be installed in ~/texmf/tex/latex/nddiss2e/. The file nddiss2e.bst can be installed in ~/texmf/bibtex/bst/base/. Make sure to run `cd ~/texmf; mktexlsr' as well to generate index of the local TEXMF tree. Similarly, other classes and packages can be also installed in the local TEXMF tree. EXAMPLE THESIS -------------- The subdirectory `example' contains a sample thesis for the purpose of demonstrating the usage and output of the various parameters. The files are the same as in the sample_ndthesis.tar.gz distribution by Jeff Squyeres and D. A. Peterson, but modified for the nddiss2e class. Thanks to D. A. Peterson and others.
