Summary description: Symbols accessible from LaTeX
Announcement text:

The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List is an organized list of over 18,000 symbols commonly available to LaTeX users. Some of these symbols are guaranteed to be available in every TeX distribution. Others require font files that come with some, but not all, TeX distributions. The rest require font files that must be downloaded explicitly from CTAN (https://www.ctan.org/) and installed. Version 14.0 adds symbols from the utfsym, twemojis, worldflags, rojud, and plimsoll packages. Consequently, the number of symbols documented has increased from 14,599 in the previous version of the list to 18,150 in this list. Version 14.0 also fixes a number of bugs. Thanks to Gerhard Bachmaier and quark67 at free.fr for their bug reports.

The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/comprehensive The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/info/symbols/comprehensive/

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

CTAN is run entirely by volunteers and supported by TeX user groups. Please join a user group or donate to one, see https://ctan.org/lugs

## The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List – Symbols accessible from LaTeX

Over 20000 symbols accessible from LaTeX are listed in a set of tables organized by topic and package. The aim is to make it easy to find symbols and learn how to incorporate them into a LaTeX document. An index further helps locate symbols of interest.
