============================================================ The contents of the CTAN directory "was" ============================================================ Walter Schmidt w.a.schmidt@gmx.net fixmath: A LaTeX package to provide italic uppercase Greek letters in math and an additional bold italic math alphabet \mathbold; to be used with the default CM math fonts. icomma: With ordinary LaTeX, the comma cannot be used as a decimal separator in math mode, because it is treated as a punctuation character and LaTeX adds some extra space after it. This can be overcome by defining an `intelligent' comma, which adds the space only, if the next input character is actually a blank. In contrast to other known solutions, the LaTeX package icomma.sty does not rely on the particular encoding of the CM math fonts, and it works with decimal numbers of arbitrary length. upgreek: A LaTeX macro package to provide the upright Greek letters from the Euler or Adobe Symbol fonts as additional math symbols, with proper scaling in super- and subscripts. gensymb: This LaTeX package provides generic commands \degree, \celsius, \perthousand, \micro and \ohm, which work both in text and math mode. The package should co-operate flawlessly with the well-known units.sty. Various means are provided to fake the symbols or take them from external symbol fonts, if they are not available in the default fonts used in the document. The package makes optionally use of upgreek.sty. The style files can be unpacked by running the particular installation script (.ins) through LaTeX. The files will be created immediately in the appropriate TDS directory tex/latex/was, if this directory exists and the DOCSTRIP tool is properly configured -- otherwise they are written into the current directory. The documentation of a package can be generated by running the particular .dtx file through LaTeX. ==finis
