A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and it should make its way soon to a mirror near you. Thanks for the upload, Jim Hefferon ftpmaint at tug.ctan.org =============================================================== The following information was provided by our fellow contributor. Name of contribution: proof Author's name: Klaus Bosau Location on CTAN: support Summary description: Proof is a shell based completion to an ordinary word processing program, able to process and view TeX-, LaTeX-, METAFONT- and MetaPost-sources. This program needs an intact TeX/LaTeX environment and GNU bash (Bourne Again Shell), version 2.03 or higher to work properly. License type: gpl Announcement text given by the contribution's author: - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Proof is a shell based auxiliary program that's able to process and view TeX-, LaTeX-, METAFONT- and MetaPost-sources and thus can be used to quickly produce snapshots of TeX related documents whenever necessary. Its main purpose however is to act as a completion to an ordinary word processing program which normally lacks appropriate facilities to process TeX sources within a common TeX/LaTeX environment. Here, Proof completely relieves the author of doing shell related work and thus simplifies the process of preparing PostScript documents particularly in those cases where various different sources are involved. Besides Proof offers a simple control mechanism that may be accessed from within the editor being used, an interface to common METAFONT font test algorithms and a simple back-up facility, ensuring that sourcefiles can easily be restored when accidentally overwritten or deleted. - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
