This work has the LPPL maintenance status 'maintained'. The Current Maintainer of this work is Donald P. Goodman (dgoodmaniii@gmail.com). This work consists of the files basicarith.ins and basicarith.dtx, along with derived files basicarith.sty and basicarith.pdf. basicarith provides macros for typesetting basic arithmetic, in the style typically found in textbooks. It focuses on the American style of performing these algorithms. It is written mostly in low-level TeX; the goal is to have it run in either plain TeX or LaTeX, but there are two constructions that currently prevent this. It is highly configurable, with macros and lengths described in the documentation. This package should run properly on any properly running LaTeX system. It's been tested specifically with TeXLive on Linux (3.2.0 kernel).
