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.
