The NEEDSPACE package ===================== Provides the \needspace and \Needspace macros for requesting a certain amount of space on the current page for the following material. INSTALLATION ------------ Run `pdflatex` on needspace.tex to produce the files needspace.ins and needspace.sty, as well as to compile the PDF documentation. Execute `tex needspace.ins` to produce the files above except needspace.ins itself (and the PDF file, obviously). CHANGE HISTORY -------------- * v1.3c (2010/09/12): Patch to improve behaviour with commands like `\section` that use `\addvspace`. See [this thread][ctt] on comp.text.tex. [ctt]: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.text.tex/browse_frm/thread/8d849a1e0be2120e * v1.3b (2009/09/03): New maintainer (Will Robertson) * v1.3a (2003/02/18): At the suggestion of Donald Arseneau (private emails) changed guts of \needspace from ... \vskip\z@\@plus\dimen@\pagebreak\vskip\z@\@plus-\dimen@\endgroup} * v1.3 (2003/02/07): Added \Needspace (an extended version of postings by Donald Arseneau to comp.text.tex e.g., in November 1993, August 1995, September 1997, ...) * v1.2 (2002/09/11): At the suggestion of Robin Fairbairns, added use of \dimen@ to capture the argument so that calc package commands can be used in the argument.
