* SUG authors

LaTeX is a set of macros for the LaTeX document processing application.

Several years ago I began using LaTeX to write my SUG papers.
In order to produce a paper which conforms
to SAS User Group International conference paper guidelines
it is necessary to modify the LaTeX document class article.

The layout produced by the 'sugconf' class
is based on the description contained in SUGI paper guidelines,
published by SAS Institute: (2006)
note: 2021-04-02 this file is n/a

* All SUG conferences now require submission of papers as a .pdf.
TeX distributions provide pdflatex.exe which produces a .pdf
from the source text file. (.tex or .ltx or .txt).
The .pdf can be read with Adobe Reader v5 or greater.

* filename extensions

** .bat: windows batch file
         executes pdflatex, input      : <filename>.tex
                      note: input may be <filename>.txt
                            output     : <filename>.pdf
** .tex: input : text file containing LaTeX markup commands
** .pdf: output: Adobe v5 or higher

* Please review the following files
in order to familiarize yourself with LaTeX markup commands.
