KOMA-Script is a versatile bundle of LaTeX2e document classes and packages. It aims to be a replacement to the standard LaTeX2e classes.

Packages at KOMA-Script: scraddr (handling of address files), scrbase (basic features for class and package authors, e.g, key-value-options), scrdate (e.g., name of the day), scrextend (provides some KOMA-Script features for users of other classes), scrfontsizes (developer help package to generate font size files), scrhack (beta, improves some other packages), scrjura (beta, writing laws, contracts etc.), scrkbase (sub-package used by KOMA-Script classes and packages), scrlfile (manipulations while loading files, packages or classes), scrpage (obsolete), scrpage2 (configuration and definition of page styles), scrtime (output of current time), scrwfile (minimize usage of write handles; cloning of helper files), tocbasic (easy generation and handling of table of contents and lists of floats), tocstyle (alpha), typearea (professional type area and borders for ordinary persons). Main documentation files: scrguide.pdf (German), scrguien.pdf (English), scrhack.pdf (English), scrjura.pdf (German), tocstyle.pdf (English).

koma-script – A bundle of versatile classes and packages

The KOMA-Script bundle provides replacements for the article, report, and book classes with emphasis on typography and versatility. There is also a letter class.

The bundle also offers:

  • a package for calculating type areas in the way laid down by the typographer Jan Tschichold,
  • packages for easily changing and defining page styles,
  • a package scrdate for getting not only the current date but also the name of the day, and
  • a package scrtime for getting the current time.

All these packages may be used not only with KOMA-Script classes but also with the standard classes.

Since every package has its own version number, the version number quoted only refers to the version of scrbook, scrreprt, scrartcl, scrlttr2 and typearea (which are the main parts of the bundle).
