Direc­tory macros/latex/contrib/ascmac



The bun­dle pro­vides boxes and pic­ture macros, de­rived from Ja­panese p dis­tri­bu­tion. Th­ese macros and fonts were orig­i­nally de­vel­oped by ASCII MEDIA WORKS, and now main­tained by Ja­panese Devel­op­ment Com­mu­nity.

Changes from the orig­i­nal ASCII edi­tion

See the doc­u­ments (as­c­mac.pdf) for more in­for­ma­tion.

  • Sup­port pdf, XeLaTeX and Lua.
  • Fix sev­eral bugs in \oval draw­ings, which are used in screen en­vi­ron­ment and \keytop.
  • Made com­pat­i­ble with the pack­age "pic­t2e".

as­c­mac – Boxes and pic­ture macros with Ja­panese ver­ti­cal writ­ing sup­port

The bun­dle pro­vides boxes and pic­ture macros with Ja­panese ver­ti­cal writ­ing sup­port. It uses only na­tive pic­ture macros and fonts for draw­ing boxes and is thus driver-in­de­pen­dent.

Formerly part of the Ja­panese p bun­dle, it now sup­ports all en­gines.
