README for the `latexfileinfo-pkgs' package Comparison of packages showing LaTeX file infos (C) Uwe Lueck 2012/05/15 This "package" in the first instance provides a file `latexfileinfo_pkgs.htm' to be viewed by a web browser. It is an HTML list and comparison of CTAN packages displaying LaTeX source file informations according to the commands \ProvidesClass, \ProvidesFile, and \ProvidesPackage that LaTeX files should start with. The document especially describes five packages of my own, including interrelations and dependencies, and thus extends their documentations. Among packages from different authors mentioned or described as well are * `latexfileversion' and `ltxfileinfo' (rather) for single files, as well as * `classlist' and `dateiliste' for listing inputted files. Support of revision control systems is mentioned briefly. The .htm has been generated with extensions of `blog.sty' from the `morehype' bundle that are not on CTAN today, hopefully soon ... For v0.2b, the method for generating the .htm and `SrcFILEs.txt' has been refined, see docsrc/ in the CTAN directory or source/tex/latexfileinfo-pkgs/ in TDS. They are generated from the same source and use `nicefilelist.sty'. Encoding problems with umlauts are expected to be solved. When file `latexfileinfo_pkgs.RLS' is installed in TEXMF/tex/, you can access a release summary by some of the packages described in the .htm file, e.g., latexfileversion latexfileinfo_pkgs.RLS Generalizing this ([PKG].RLS) may be helpful for managing multi-package bundles (such as [PKG]) or when code versions of a package (such as [PKG]) are distinguished from documentation versions. Using the `myfilist' package, you can then generate lists of states of bundles ...
