TAN update: dozenal

Date: June 29, 2015 9:44:33 PM CEST
Donald P. Goodman submitted an update to the dozenal package. Version number: 6.0 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset documents using base twelve numbering (also called "dozenal") Announcement text:
For version 6.0, added the "\doznumtowords" macro, which will take a counter and output it in dozenal words. Which words it uses can be customized; I have made no attempt to internationalize this with different languages, because I haven't the foggiest how to do so other than simply writing option packs with different definitions in them. Also did a complete rewrite of |\basex|, so its workings are now (almost) comprehensible. Finally, darkened the tally marks and put in hand-written italic shapes.

dozenal – Typeset documents using base twelve numbering (also called “dozenal”)

The package supports typesetting documents whose counters are represented in base twelve, also called “dozenal”. It includes a macro by David Kastrup for converting positive whole numbers to dozenal from decimal (base ten) representation. The package also includes a few other macros and redefines all the standard counters to produce dozenal output.

Fonts, in Roman, italic, slanted, and boldface versions, provide ten and eleven (the Pitman characters preferred by the Dozenal Society of Great Britain). The fonts were designed to blend well with the Computer Modern fonts, and are available both as source and in Adobe Type 1 format.
