CTAN Update: etoc

Date: March 5, 2013 1:31:14 PM CET
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the etoc package. Summary description: easily customisable TOCs License type: lppl Announcement text:
[2013/03/03] The documentation has again being extended: * it is explained how to convert the TOC data into a tree in the standard TikZ syntax (rather than the Qtree syntax used in the previous documentation release from two days ago). And this time, hyperlinks are functional (which explains why I felt like announcing it world wide). The examples use the `grow cyclic' style (from the TikZ trees library) and produce `molecule-type' TOCs. * it is detailed how to tell the \tableofcontents command to produce paragraphs of the following type: "This chapter contains 5 sections and 17 subsections. The name of the first subsection is `Do not read me' and the name of the last is `I told you so'". Best regards,
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/etoc . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/etoc (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

etoc – Completely customisable TOCs

The package gives the user complete control of how the entries of the table of contents should be constituted from the name, number, and page number of each sectioning unit. The layout is controlled by the definition of ‘line styles’ for each sectioning level used in the document.

The package provides its own custom line styles (which may be used as examples), and continues to support the standard formatting inherited from the document classes, but the package can also allow the user to delegate the details to packages dealing with list making environments (such as enumitem). The package’s default global style typesets tables of contents in a multi-column format, with either a standard heading, or a ruled title (optionally with a frame around the table).

The \tableofcontents command may be used arbitrarily many times in the same document, while \localtableofcontents provides a ‘local’ table of contents.
