Bar­bara Bee­ton sub­mit­ted the am­scls-doc pack­age. Ver­sion: 2017-09-01 Li­cense: lp­pl1.3c Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: User doc­u­men­ta­tion for AMS doc­u­ment classes An­nounce­ment text:
This col­lec­tion in­cludes four user man­u­als, the "AMS Author Hand­books", each di­rected to the use of a par­tic­u­lar AMS doc­u­ment class. Th­ese man­u­als col­lec­tively form the user doc­u­men­ta­tion for the am­scls macro bun­dle (found in the "LaTeX re­quired" area). The man­u­als are com­piled from source files that min­i­mize du­pli­ca­tion of com­mon in­for­ma­tion and tai­lor class-spe­cific ma­te­rial through the use of switches and some ad­di­tional source files. The mo­ti­va­tion for this struc­ture and in­struc­tions for com­pil­ing such a multi-sourced col­lec­tion are de­tailed in the aux­il­iary man­ual ams-au­thor-hand­book-doc; this col­lec­tion might serve as a model for other multi-tar­geted doc­u­men­ta­tion projects.

am­scls-doc – User doc­u­men­ta­tion for AMS doc­u­ment classes

This col­lec­tion com­prises a set of four man­u­als, or Author Hand­books, each doc­u­ment­ing the use of a class of pub­li­ca­tions based on one of the AMS doc­u­ment classes am­sart, ams­book, am­sproc and one “hy­brid”, as well as a guide to the gen­er­a­tion of the four man­u­als from a co­or­di­nated set of source files. The Hand­books com­prise the user doc­u­men­ta­tion for the per­ti­nent doc­u­ment classes.

As the source for the Hand­books con­sists of a large num­ber of files, and the in­tended out­put is mul­ti­ple dif­fer­ent doc­u­ments, the prin­ci­ples un­der­ly­ing this col­lec­tion can be used as a model for sim­i­lar projects. The man­ual “Com­pil­ing the AMS Author Hand­books” pro­vides in­for­ma­tion about the struc­ture of and in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the var­i­ous com­po­nents.
