Format support

To use the macros in , load the asapsym package:

\usepackage{asapsym}

To use the macros in Plain , \input the asapsym.code.tex file:

\input asapsym.code.tex

Both asapsym.sty and asapsym.code.tex are wrappers around the main generic macro definitions in asapsym-generic.tex.

Dependencies

When using , the fontspec package is used for loading the OpenType font and selecting features.

When using Plain with the Lua engine, luaotfload.sty is used for loading the OpenType font and selecting features using the same syntax used natively by .

The files distributed to CTAN are:

  • asapsym.dtx (the documented sources)

  • asapsym.pdf (the typeset documentation)
  • README.md (the file you are reading now)
  • Asap-Symbol.otf (the OpenType font, released under SIL OFL, version 1.1)

Executing the command latex asapsym.ins will generate the following package files from the asapsym.dtx file:
