smaller – Choose an "adjacent" size in LaTeX
Defines two commands \larger and \smaller. Starting with text size \small, \larger will give you \normalsize and \smaller will give you \footnotesize—in each case, one step on the hierarchy of LaTeX sizes.
This LaTeX 2.09 package is superseded by the more subtle relsize package for current LaTeX.
