Preprint Collection: (May 2013) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This directory contains some packages written by Patrick W. Daly. The primary distribution site is: http://www.mps.mpg.de/software/latex/localtex/localltx.html I (Arash Esbati) mentioned balance.sty in comp.text.tex, was invited to put in on CTAN, asked Patrick W. Daly for permission, wrote this readme for your convenience and made a CTAN submission. Legal stuff: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The copyright holder of these packages is Patrick W. Daly. They can be redistributed and/or modified under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License Distributed from CTAN archives in directory macros/latex/base/lppl.txt; either version 1 of the License, or any later version. Important note: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Unfortunately, the author of these packages doesn't have the time for further development, bug fixes, "wishes" etc. Hence, they are provided "as is". If you run into problems, you are on your own. Brief description: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1. authblk.sty: (version 1.3 from 2001/02/27) A LaTeX2e package to redefine the \author command to work as normal or to allow a footnote style of author/affiliation input. 2. balance.sty: (version 4.3 from 1999/02/23) When writing a document with LaTeX two-column mode, the columns on the last page, or those before a \cleardoublepage command, will be of unequal height. balance.sty solves this problem by modifying the output routines in two-column mode. 3. figcaps.sty: (version 4.7 from 1999/02/23) This package allows the figure captions to be collected throughout the paper and printed on a separate page at the end. The figures themselves will not appear in the text. This is for purposes of a manuscript for submission. Similarly, tables are not printed in the text, but are outputted at the end, after the figure captions. This package may optionally be used with the longtable environment defined in the package of the same name. 4. fullpage.sty: (version 1.1 from 1999/02/23) This package sets all 4 margins to be either 1 inch or 1.5 cm, and specifies the page style. 5. sublabel.sty (version 4.5 from 1999/02/23) The macros in this package allow all counters to be subnumbered, as for example 4a, 4b, 4c, simply by bracketting the objects to be so numbered with appropriate on/off commands. They will work with any user-defined counters too. 6. appendix.sty: (version 2.2 from 2005/10/30) Adding this package redefines \appendix so that main counters for figures, tables, equations are subnumbered under the appendix. The plate counter is also subnumbered. A \noappendix command is included so that things like bibliographies may be called after the appendix with \section*. This package is only useful with article documentclass for obvious reasons. N.B.: This package is not available on CTAN due to a name clash. You have to fetch it from the site mentioned above. Installation: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Just run LaTeX on (package).ins, which generates (package).sty. If you want the documentation as a dvi, run LaTeX on (package).dtx, otherwise use the provided format. Move the .sty-files to a directory where LaTeX looks for the input files. Update your file name database and you're done. Check your local guide for more Information. Happy TeXing! Arash Esbati ;; Local Variables: ;; mode: text ;; fill-column: 75 ;; End:
