New on CTAN: wheretotrim
wheretotrim is a Perl script and auxiliary LaTeX package that helps LaTeX users reduce their document's page count. It is intended to be used with documents that exceed a publisher's specified page-length limitation by a small amount (much less than a full column or page). wheretotrim reports the page and column on which the least amount of text needs to be trimmed to reduce the page count. It works by repeatedly rebuilding the given document, analyzing the benefit of trimming from each column or page one line of text, then two, then three, and so forth until the document's page count decreases. wheretotrim has been tested only on Linux. It might work on OS X. It probably won't work on Windows.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/support/wheretotrim . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/wheretotrim (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 . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
