----- For­warded mes­sage from Wal­ter Sch­midt <w-a-schmidt at ar­cor.de> ----- I have up­loaded the file gen­symb.zip to the /in­com­ing di­rec­tory at dante.ctan.org. Please, un­pack it to the CTAN di­rec­tory macros/la­tex/con­trib/sup­ported/was . Do­ing so will add the files gen­symb.dtx and gen­symb.ins and up­date the files up­greek.dtx and readme.1st. The other files in this di­rec­tory are to re­main un­changed. This is the first (and some­what ex­per­i­men­tal) re­lease of the LaTeX pack­age gen­symb.sty. It pro­vides generic com­mands \de­gree, \cel­sius, \pert­hou­sand, \mi­cro and \ohm, which work both in text and math mode. Var­i­ous means are pro­vided to fake the sym­bols or take them from par­tic­u­lar sym­bol fonts, if they are not avail­able in the de­fault fonts used in the doc­u­ment. This should be per­fectly trans­par­ent at user level, so that one can ap­ply the same no­ta­tion for units of mea­sure­ment in text and math mode and with ar­bi­trary type­faces. Note that the pack­age has been de­signed to work flaw­lessly in con­junc­tion with the fa­mous units.sty. This up­load up­dates also the source file of my pack­age up­greek.sty. How­ever, only the doc­u­men­ta­tion has been changed with re­spect to the new gen­symb pack­age, which can coop­ereate with up­greek. The macro pack­age up­greek.sty is ac­tu­ally un­changed. thank you in ad­vance Wal­ter Sch­midt ----- End for­warded mes­sage ----- Thanks for the up­load. I in­stalled the new and up­dated files in CTAN:macros/la­tex/con­trib/sup­ported/was/ as sug­gested. Rein­hard Zierke for the CTAN team
