To­bias Weh sub­mit­ted the metrix pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.0 Li­cense type: lppl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A pack­age to type­set met­ric/prosodic sym­bols stan­dalone or above syl­la­bles. An­nounce­ment text:
This is the ini­tial ver­sion of metrix. A pack­age to type­set the met­rics (prosod­ics) as a line of sym­bols or above the syl­la­bles of a verse. It uses an ASCII like syn­tax for the sym­bols, e.g. u for an el­e­men­tum bre­vis, _ for an el­e­men­tum longum or u_uu for an el­e­men­tum an­ceps. The sym­bols can be aligned above (or be­low) the syl­la­bles if you give the verse in a hy­phen­ated form. A short ex­am­ple by Ovid in his Tris­tia 4,10,26: \met­rics{_ _ _ _ _ | _ u u _ u u _ } {et quod temp-ta-bam | scri-be-re ver-sus e-rat} Fur­ther­more metrix de­fines three new com­mands for ac­cent like sym­bols (\lng, \brv and \acct) and a macro to print the bow con­nect­ing two vow­els or syl­la­bles (\bow).
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/metrix/ More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/metrix (as this is a new pack­age, it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .

metrix – Type­set met­ric marks for Latin text

The pack­age may be used to type the prosod­ics/met­rics of (latin) verse; it pro­vides macros to type­set the sym­bols stand­ing alone, and in com­bi­na­tion with sym­bols, giv­ing au­to­matic align­ment.

The pack­age re­quires TikZ (in­clud­ing the calc li­brary), xpatch, and xparse (thus also re­quir­ing the ex­per­i­men­tal 3 en­vi­ron­ment).
