  • \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
    added in ad hoc manner (寿限無・寿限無、五劫の…).

    "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 pdf

  • 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 -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.
