Since LaTeX broke the reg­is­ter al­lo­ca­tion scheme of the `etex' pack­age in 2015, big­foot.sty needs to re­frain from load­ing `etex'. There are no other changes as com­pared to ver­sion 2.0.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/big­foot/ More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/big­foot We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .

big­foot – Foot­notes for crit­i­cal edi­tions

The pack­age aims to pro­vide a ‘one-stop’ so­lu­tion to re­quire­ments for foot­notes. It of­fers:

  • Mul­ti­ple foot­note ap­pa­ra­tus su­pe­rior to that of many­foot
  • Foot­notes can be for­mat­ted in sep­a­rate para­graphs, or be run into a sin­gle para­graph (this choice may be se­lected per foot­note se­ries);
  • Things you might have ex­pected (such as \verb-like ma­te­rial in foot­notes, and colour se­lec­tions over page breaks) now work.

Note that the ma­jor­ity of the big­foot pack­age's in­ter­face is iden­ti­cal to that of many­foot; users should seek in­for­ma­tion from that pack­age's doc­u­men­ta­tion.

The big­foot bun­dle also pro­vides the per­page and suf­fix pack­ages.
