# BXjalipsum Package

: Dummy text in Japanese

This package enables users to print some Japanese text that can be used as dummy text. It is a Japanese counterpart of the lipsum package.

Since there is no well-known nonsense text like Lipsum in the Japanese language, the package uses some real text in public domain.

### System requirement

• format: .
• engine: pdf / p / up / / Lua.
• Dependent packages:
• intcalc (when using non- engines)

### Installation

• `*.sty` → \$TEXMF/tex/latex/BXjalipsum

## The bxjalipsum Package

`\usepackage{bxjalipsum}`

No options are available.

### Usage

• `\jalipsum[<range>,...]{<key>}`: Prints some paragraphs from the text specified by the key.
```  - `iroha` (1 paragraph): The iroha sequence (いろはにほへと…).
- `jugemu` (1 paragraph): The "jugemu" name (寿限無寿限無五劫の…).
- `jugemuP` (1 paragraph): The "jugemu" name, with some punctuation
- `wagahai` (33 paragraphs): The first chapter from the novel
"吾輩は猫である" (I Am A Cat) written by Natsume Soseki.
- `preamble` (4 paragraphs): The preamble of the Constitution of
Japan.
- `hatsukoi` (4 paragraphs): The whole text of the poem "初恋"
(First Love) written by Shimazaki Toson.
- `kusamakura` (13 paragraphs): The opening passage from the novel
"草枕" (Kusamakura) written by Natsume Soseki.```
```Ranges are specified in the form `[-3,7-10,5,12-]`. If ranges are not
given, then `[-]` (all paragraphs) will be assumed.```
• `\jalipsumiroha`: The shorthand for `\jalipsum{iroha}`.
• `\jalipsumjugemu`: The shorthand for `\jalipsum{jugemu}`.
• `\jalipsumjugemuP`: The shorthand for `\jalipsum{jugemuP}`.

### Notices on use with pdfTeX

• In using with pdf, Japanese (non-ASCII) characters are represented as UTF-8 byte sequences. Thus there must be some mechanism (such as the CJKutf8 package) that will decode such sequences and display the Japanese characters properly.

### Notices for the TeX-programmers

• All the commands are fully expandable.
• The `\jalipsum` command is expanded to the actual text in two steps.
• The shorthand commands such as `\jalipsumiroha` are expanded to the actual text in one step.
• Each of the paragraph texts consists only of character tokens and optional `\\` (line-break) tokens.
• When `\jalipsum` with multiple paragraphs is expanded, each paragraph is joined with `\par` tokens.
