The gmdoc.zip package is a work of Grzegorz Murzynowski, <natror at o2 dot pl> 1. Copyright 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 by Grzegorz `Natror' Murzynowski This program is subject to the LaTeX Project Public License. See http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/licenses.lppl.html for the details of that license. 2. Introduction This package provides a tool for documenting of (La)TeX packages, classes etc., i.e., the .sty, .cls etc. The author just writes the code and adds the commentary preceded with % sign (or another sign properly declared). No special environments are necessary. The package tends to be compatible with the standard doc.sty package, i.e., the .dtx files are also compilable with gmdoc (they may need very little adjustment, in some rather special cases). The tools are integrated with hyperref.sty's advantages such as hyperlinking of index entries, of contents entries and of cross-references. 3. Installation Unpack the gmdoc-tds.zip archive in a texmf directory or put the gmdoc.sty, gmdocc.cls and gmoldcomm.sty somewhere in the texmf/tex/latex branch on your own and also the gmiflink.sty, gmverb.sty and gmiflink.sty files (available on CTAN in separate packages). (Creating a /texmf/tex/latex/gm directory may be advisable if you consider using other packages written by me.) Moreover, you should put the gmglo.ist file, a MakeIndex style for the changes' history, into some texmf/makeindex directory. Then you should refresh your TeX distribution's files' database most probably. 4. Contents The distribution of this package consists of the following five files. gmdoc.sty gmdocc.cls gmglo.ist README gmdoc.pdf gmdoc-tds.zip 5. Documentation The last of the above files (the .pdf) is a documentation compiled from the .sty file by running LaTeX on the gmdocDoc.tex file twice: xelatex gmdoc.sty in the directory you wish the documentation to be in, you don't have copy the .sty file there---TeX will find it, then MakeIndex on the gmdoc.idx and gmdoc.glo files, and then LaTeX on gmdocDoc.tex twice again. MakeIndex shell commands: makeindex -r gmdocDoc makeindex -r -s gmglo.ist -o gmdocDoc.gls gmdocDoc.glo The -r switch is to forbid MakeIndex make implicit ranges since the (code line) numbers will be hyperlinks. The -s switch makes MakeIndex use the style file instead of the default settings and the -o switch declares the not-default name of the output file Compiling of the documentation requires the packages gmdoc.sty (with the gmdocc.cls class), gmiflink.sty, gmverb.sty, gmutils.sty and also some standard packages: hyperref.sty, xcolor.sty, geometry.sty, multicol.sty, lmodern.sty, fontenc.sty that should be installed on your computer by default. The gmglo.ist file, a MakeIndex style for the changes' history, is provided on CTAN in the gmdoc .zip archive and should be put into some texmf/makeindex directory. If you have not installed the mwcls classes (available on CTAN and present in TeX Lives e.g.), the result of your compilation may differ a bit from the .pdf provided in this .zip archive in formattings: If you have not installed mwcls, the standard article.cls will be used. DEPENDS ON (only non-standard files listed): gmiflink.sty gmutils.sty gmverb.sty gmglo.ist *if you typeset The LaTeX 2e Source BONUS: Base drivers As a bonus and example of doc-compatibility there are driver files included (cf. Palestrina, Missa papae Marcelli ;-): source2e_gmdoc.tex docstrip_gmdoc.tex doc_gmdoc.tex (gmsource2e.ist is generated from source2e_gmdoc.tex) gmoldcomm.sty These drivers typeset the respective files from the .../texmf-dist/source/latex/base directory of TeXLive2005 distribution. Probably you should redefine the \BasePath macro in them so that it points that directory on your computer.

gmdoc – Documentation of LaTeX packages
A LaTeX package and an example class for documenting (La)TeX packages, document classes, .dtx etc., providing hyperlinks. The package is believed to be compatible with doc and permits minimal markup of code (the macrocode environment is no longer necessary). The package provides automatic detection of definitions (detecting such things as \def, \newcommand, \DeclareOption etc.).
As a bonus (and as an example of doc compatibility) driver files are provided that may be used to typeset the LaTeX Base.
