I'd like to announce the availability of my LaTeX2e acronym Package from CTAN. INSTALLATION: - call 'latex acronym.ins' and copy the acronym.sty - file into a path searched by LaTeX. - to re-generate the documentation, call latex acronym.dtx When writing a paper on cellular mobile radio I started to used a lot of acronyms. This can be very disturbing for the reader, as he might not know all the used acronyms. To help the reader I kept a list of all the acronyms at the end of my paper. This package makes sure, that all acronyms used in the text are spelled out in full at least once. And it provides an environment to keep a list of used acronyms. Note that acronym requires the 'suffix' package. You can find it on CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/bigfoot/ Files of the `acronym' package: README This file acronym.dtx Sourcecode, example file & documentation acronym.ins Installation script generating the source and an example acronym.pdf PDF Version of the Docs CHANGES list of changes

acronym – Expand acronyms at least once
This package ensures that all acronyms used in the text are spelled out in full at least once. It also provides an environment to build a list of acronyms used. The package is compatible with pdf bookmarks.
The package requires the suffix package, which in turn requires that it runs under e-TeX.
