New on CTAN: TeX-nutshell
I created a new and short document (24 pages) about TeX principles (pure TeX and plain TeX macros, summary of features). I hope that this document can be useful for somebody who is looking for information about basics of TeX. If someone helps me improve my English (for future versions of this document), I welcome it very much.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/tex-nutshell The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/info/tex-nutshell/
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

TeX-nutshell – A short document about TeX principles
This document is meant for users who are looking for information about the basics of TeX.
Its main goal is its brevity. The pure TeX features are described, no features provided by macro extensions. Only the last section gives a summary of plain TeX macros.
