Date: Au­gust 12, 2004 2:20:35 PM CEST
A new pack­age has been in­stalled on tug.ctan.org and it should soon be at your fa­vorite mir­ror. Thank you for the con­tri­bu­tion, Jim Hef­feron ====================================================================== The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: FigBib Author's name: Jan Poland Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: macros/la­tex/con­trib/fig­bib Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: or­ga­nize fig­ure databases with BibTeX Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- FigBib lets you or­ga­nize your fig­ures in BibTeX databases. Some FigBib fea­tures are: - - - Store and man­age fig­ures in a BibTeX database - - - In­clude fig­ures in your LaTeX doc­u­ment with one short com­mand - - - Gen­er­ate a List of Fig­ures con­tain­ing more/other in­for­ma­tion than the fig­ure cap­tions - - - Con­trol with one switch where to out­put the fig­ures, ei­ther as usual float ob­jects or in a sep­a­rate part at the end of your doc­u­ment FigBib is for LaTeX au­thors who have to or­ga­nize many fig­ures. In this case, it may not be con­ve­nient to man­age all in­for­ma­tion in a ``low level" man­ner di­rectly in the doc­u­ments. In­stead, it would be de­sir­able to have a database which con­tains the im­ages, cor­re­spond­ing cap­tions and ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion in a bun­dled form. Then, a ``high-level" com­mand is is­sued each time a fig­ure needs to be in­cluded. FigBib pro­vides such a mech­a­nism. If the user wants to in­clude a fig­ure with the la­bel ``MyFig­ure:1" as a float ob­ject on the top of the page with a width of 5cm, then he writes \fbEps­fig{MyFig­ure:1}{5cm}{t} The cor­re­spond­ing data for the fig­ure, such as cap­tion, name of the eps file etc., is stored in a BibTeX data base. There, the en­try could be for ex­am­ple @fig{MyFig­ure:1, main = {This is the de­scrip­tion/cap­tion}, file = {my­fig­ure1} - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the pack­age at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/fig­bib al­though you may get a bet­ter net­work con­nec­tion by vis­it­ing a mir­ror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mir­rors
