Description
===========

ctanify is intended for developers of LaTeX packages who want to
distribute their packages via the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network
(CTAN).  Given a list of filenames, ctanify creates a tarball (a
.tar.gz file) with the files laid out in CTAN's preferred structure.
The tarball additionally contains a ZIP (.zip) file with copies of all
files laid out in the standard TeX Directory Structure (TDS), which
facilitates inclusion of the package in the TeX Live distribution of
TeX.

ctanify has been tested primarily on Linux but with reports from users
that it also works on OS X.  Volunteers willing to help port ctanify
to other platforms are especially welcome.

ctan­ify – Pre­pare a pack­age for up­load to CTAN

Given a list of file­names, ctan­ify cre­ates a tar­ball (a .tar.gz file) with the files laid out in CTAN’s pre­ferred struc­ture. The tar­ball ad­di­tion­ally con­tains a ZIP (.zip) file with copies of all files laid out in the stan­dard TeX Direc­tory Struc­ture (TDS), which may be used by those in­tend­ing to in­stall the pack­age, or by those who need to in­cor­po­rate it in a dis­tri­bu­tion. (The TDS ZIP file will be in­stalled in the CTAN in­stall/ tree.)
