crop – Support for cropmarks

A package providing corner marks for camera alignment as well as for trimming paper stacks, and additional page information on every page if required. Most macros are easily adaptable to personal preferences. An option is provided for selectively suppressing graphics or text, which may be useful for printing just colour graphics on a colour laser printer and the rest on a cheap mono laser printer. A page info line contains the time and a new cropmarks index and is printed at the top of the page. A configuration command is provided for the info line font. Options for better collaboration with dvips, pdf and vtex are provided.
