----- For­warded mes­sage from Gian­franco Bog­gio-Togna ----- I have up­loaded the file `arcs.zip' to ftp.dante.de/in­com­ing. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: arcs Author: Gian­franco Bog­gio-Togna <gbt at acm.org> Suggested lo­ca­tion: /tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/arcs Li­cense: LaTeX Project Public Li­cense De­scrip­tion: This tiny pack­age pro­vides two com­mands for plac­ing an arc over/un­der a short piece of text. The code comes from my pack­age `me­tre'. I have repack­aged it to make it more eas­ily avail­able and to al­low the com­mands to be used within math for­mu­las. ----- End for­warded mes­sage ----- Thanks for the up­load. I in­stalled the new pack­age as sug­gested in CTAN:macros/la­tex/con­trib/arcs/ As we are try­ing to move to on­line PDF doc­u­men­ta­tion, I ran arcs.dtx through pdfla­tex and in­stalled the file arcs.pdf as well. (While I was at it, I also re­named macros/la­tex/con­trib/me­tre/readme to macros/la­tex/con­trib/me­tre/REAME. Thus web browsers will au­tomag­i­cally dis­play this file when en­ter­ing the di­rec­tory.) Rein­hard Zierke for the CTAN team

me­tre – Sup­port for the work of clas­si­cists

The pack­age pro­vides clas­si­cists with some of the tools that are needed for type­set­ting schol­arly pub­li­ca­tions deal­ing with Greek and Latin texts, with spe­cial em­pha­sis on Greek verse.

As the pack­age's name sug­gests, its core is a com­pre­hen­sive set of com­mands for gen­er­at­ing met­ri­cal schemes and for plac­ing prosod­i­cal marks on text set in the Latin or the Greek al­pha­bet. The rest of the pack­age pro­vides a mis­cel­lany of com­mands for sym­bols (most of them not di­rectly re­lated to me­tre) that are of­ten used in crit­i­cal edi­tions of clas­si­cal texts.

The pack­age does not re­quire any spe­cial font: all sym­bols are taken from the Com­puter Modern fonts (which are in­cluded in all dis­tri­bu­tions) and the pack­age's com­mands are based on prim­i­tives.
