Otherwise you will not be able to tex the documentation! 1 - FILES DISTRIBUTED WITH THIS PACKAGE texshade.ins Batch file, run through LaTeX texshade.dtx Docstrip archive, run twice through LaTeX tsfaq.tex Frequently asked questions about TeXshade texshade.txt This file (a) FILES THAT WILL BE GENERATED FROM TEXSHADE.INS texshade.sty LaTeX package texshade.def Standard definitions AQPDNA.MSF Example nucleotide alignment file (MSF-format) AQPpro.MSF Example protein alignment file (MSF-format) AQP_TC.asc Example T-Coffee shading file AQP2spec.ALN Example protein alignment file (ALN-format) AQP1.top Example topology data file generated from PHD AQP1.phd Example PHD secondary structure file AQP1_HMM.sgl Example HMMTOP topology data (single line format) AQP1_HMM.ext Example HMMTOP topology data (extended format) Standard.cod Standard genetic code definitions Ciliate.cod Ciliate macronuclear genetic code definitions (b) FILE THAT WILL BE GENERATED FROM TEXSHADE.DTX texshade.dvi Package documentation 2 - INSTALLATION (a) EXTRACTING FILES FROM THE DOCSTRIP ARCHIVE All files provided by TeXshade are compacted to one single file, namely "texshade.dtx". To extract the archive run "texshade.ins" - which contains the corresponding instructions - through LaTeX. A list of the generated files is given above, see 1(a). AGAIN: Be sure to use a docstrip version 2.4 or later! Otherwise you will not be able to tex the documentation! (b) THE DOCUMENTATION The file "texshade.dtx" further contains the package documentation. Therefore, run this file through LaTeX now. As you will recognize two runs are needed to make proper references within the document. TeXshade needs lots of TeX's memory, so adjust your parameter set- tings to make TeXshade feel comfortable. The documentation is a good test for this. (If you encounter problems texing the doc, you should tex and read section A of the FAQ-list (see d below) or download an on-line version [PDF-, DVI-, or PostScript format] at http://homepages.uni-tuebingen.de/beitz/) The resulting file "texshade.dvi" can be viewed and printed using a DVI-viewer which is able to display embedded PostScript. Another possibility is to run "texshade.dvi" through DVIPS, a DVI to Post- Script converter, and finally view and print the converted file which will be most likely "texshade.ps" with GhostView from the GNU free software foundation. TeXshade makes use of "color.sty" by David Carlisle. This style is part of the Standard LaTeX Graphics Bundle. Usually, the bundle is present in a comprehensive LaTeX installation. If this is not the case for your system you have to download the package from a CTAN- server, e.g. ftp.dante.de. (c) MAKING TEXSHADE.STY AVAILABLE FOR YOUR LATEX SYSTEM In the final step, copy at least the files "texshade.sty" and "ciliate.cod" to a directory searched by TeX in order to make these files available for all documents you'll produce in the future. The remaining files are example files which are not necessary for run- ning TeXshade. Nevertheless, it would be a good idea to keep all the files together. (d) THE FAQ LIST The FAQ list contains frequently asked questions about the package. Use it as a helpful source for solving problems with TeXshade. You get the list by simply running "tsfaq.tex" through LaTeX once. 3 - CONTACT E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org WWW: http://www.pharmazie.uni-kiel.de/chem/ (On-line documentation and updates) Address: Eric Beitz, University of Kiel, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Gutenbergstrasse 76, D-24118 Kiel (Germany) 4 - AGREEMENT This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

texshade – Package for setting nucleotide and peptide alignments
TeXshade is alignment shading software completely written in TeX/LaTeX; it can process multiple sequence alignments in the .MSF and the .ALN file formats. In addition to common shading algorithms, it provides special shading modes showing functional aspects, e.g. charge or hydropathy, and a wide range of commands for handling shading colours, text styles, labels, legends; it even allows the user to define completely new shading modes. TeXshade combines highest flexibility with TeX output quality — all in a bundle that does not demand excessive development time of the user.
