Project: Ctan guidelines verifier and corrector program for uploading projects Distributed under license: GNU General Public License (version 3). Distribution Date: 15 Feb. 2015 Distribution version: 1.0 Comments: Currently for the Unix flavoured Platforms running Gawk Author: Dave Bone Contributors list: Dave Bone Basic Gawk program that uses Ctan's published guidelines for authors to help eliminate slopiness in uploaded files/project. It is completely open for users to program additional guidelines and Ctan's future adjustments. The program came about when I first attempted to upload ``Yacco2'' for Ctan consideration. As Yacco2 was quite large, it took me 3 attempts to clean up my project. Depending on how you develop your project, in my case the Yacco2 project for Ctan upload is a subset of the complete system and so each uplift required the guideline assessment/purging process. This is my attempt to help both the author in getting the new system in shape for Ctan uplift and to lower the Ctan volunteers interaction to aid in publishing on their servers. It is my thank you to these volanteers / Ctan. 1) License. ctan_chk's distributed source code is subject to the terms of the GNU General Public License (version 3).
