README for papermas package, 2011/08/22, v1.0h TABLE OF CONTENTS ================= 1 Introduction 2 Download 3 Installation 4 Additional Packages 5 Package Compatibility 6 Author/Maintainer 7 Bug Reports 8 Known Problems 1 INTRODUCTION ============== This package allows to compute the mass of a printed version of a document, useful e.g. when sending it by mail to determine the postage. Warning/Disclaimer: The mass of (printer's) ink has to be added and that of envelope, address sticker, stamps,... Thus this is only an estimation without guarantee - do not sue me, if you have got to pay excess postage! This material is subject to the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL). See http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/ licenses.lppl.html for the details of that license. 2 DOWNLOAD ========== `papermas' is available on CTAN: CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/papermas/ Also a ZIP file is provided that contains the files, already sorted in a TDS tree: CTAN:install/macros/latex/contrib/papermas.tds.zip `CTAN:' means one of the `Comprehensive TeX Archive Network' nodes or one of its mirrors. This is explained in http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=archives The CTAN stuff will be mirrored automatically from the ftp server, so ftp://ftp.tug.org/pub/tex/papermas/ corresponds to CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/papermas/ 3 INSTALLATION ============== Installation with ZIP file in TDS format ---------------------------------------- The ZIP file `papermas.tds.zip' contains the files sorted in a TDS tree. Thus you can directly unpack the ZIP file inside a TDS tree. (See CTAN:tds.zip for an explanation of TDS.) Example: cd /...somewhere.../texmf unzip /...downloadpath.../papermas.tds.zip Do not forget to refresh the file name database of this TDS tree. Example: texhash /...somewhere.../texmf Manual installation ------------------- a) Download the papermas files from CTAN or the TUG server. If necessary, unpack them. b) Generate the package and driver files: tex papermas.ins c) Install the file `*.sty' in your TDS tree: cp *.sty TDS:tex/latex/papermas/ Replace `TDS:' by the prefix of your TDS tree (texmf directory). d) Copy the documentation files to "TDS:doc/latex/papermas/": README, papermas.pdf, papermas-example.tex, papermas-example.pdf. e) Update the databases if necessary, e.g. for teTeX: mktexlsr .../texmf 4 ADDITIONAL PACKAGES ===================== Depending on the driver and option settings, papermas loads other packages: * kvoptions.sty: CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/oberdiek/kvoptions.dtx * intcalc.sty: CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/oberdiek/intcalc.dtx * pageslts.sty: CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/pageslts/pageslts.dtx which again load other packages (see the result of the \listfiles command in the log-file of the example). 5 PACKAGE COMPATIBILITY ======================= papermas should be loaded AFTER package pageslts. 6 AUTHOR/MAINTAINER ===================== * H.-Martin M�nch 7 BUG REPORTS ============== A bug report should contain: * Comprehensive problem description. This includes error or warning messages. * \errorcontextlines=\maxdimen can be added in the TeX code to get more information in TeX error messages. * Minimal test file that shows the problem, but does not contain any unnecessary packages and code. * Used drivers/programs. * Version information about used packages and programs. * If you are using LaTeX, then add "\listfiles". Then a list of version information is printed at the end of the LaTeX run. * Please no other files than the minimal test file. The other files .log, .dvi, .ps, .pdf are seldom necessary, so send them only on request. * Please .zip or .tar.gz your file(s) before sending them! Bug address ----------- Bug reports can be send to the maintainer: H.-Martin M�nch <Martin [dot] Muench [at] Uni-Bonn [dot] de> 8 KNOWN PROBLEMS ================= TeX 2011/06/27 has changed \enddocument and thus broken the \AtVeryVeryEnd command/hooking of atveryend package as of 2011/04/23, v1.7. Until it is fixed, \AtEndAfterFileList is used.
