README for papermas package, 2023-04-12, v1.1a TABLE OF CONTENTS ================= 1 Introduction 2 Download 3 Installation 4 Additional Packages 5 Package Compatibility 6 Author/Maintainer 7 Bug Reports 8 Known Problems 1 INTRODUCTION ============== This LaTeX package allows to compute the mass of a printed version of a document, useful e.g. to determine the postage when sending it by snail mail. Warning/Disclaimer: The mass of (printer's) ink has to be added and that of envelope, address sticker, stamps,... Thus this is only an estimation without guarantee - do not sue me, if you have got to pay excess postage!

Thus you can directly unpack the ZIP file inside a TDS tree. See https://ctan.org/TDS-guidelines for an explanation of TDS. Example: cd /...somewhere.../texmf unzip /...downloadpath.../papermas.tds.zip Do not forget to refresh the file name database of this TDS tree. Example: texhash /...somewhere.../texmf Manual installation ------------------- a) Download the papermas files from CTAN. If necessary, unpack them. b) Generate the package and driver files: tex papermas.dtx c) Install the file "papermas.sty" in your TDS tree: cp papermas.sty TDS:tex/latex/papermas/ Replace "TDS:" by the prefix of your TDS tree (texmf directory). d) Create the documentation, if necessary, e.g. pdflatex papermas.dtx makeindex -s gind.ist papermas.idx pdflatex papermas.dtx makeindex -s gind.ist papermas.idx pdflatex papermas.dtx e) Update the databases if necessary, e.g. for TeXLive texhash or mktexlsr. f) Create the papermas-example.pdf, if necessary, e.g. pdflatex papermas-example.tex pdflatex papermas-example.tex pdflatex papermas-example.tex g) Copy the documentation files to "TDS:doc/latex/papermas/": README, papermas.pdf, papermas-example.tex, papermas-example.pdf. 4 ADDITIONAL PACKAGES ===================== papermas loads other packages: - kvoptions - intcalc which again load other packages (see the result of the \listfiles command in the log-file of the example). 5 PACKAGE COMPATIBILITY ======================= papermas should be loaded quite late. 6 AUTHOR/MAINTAINER =================== H.-Martin Münch 7 BUG REPORTS ============= A bug report should contain: * Comprehensive problem description. This includes error or warning messages. * \errorcontextlines=\maxdimen can be added in the TeX code to get more information in TeX error messages. * Minimal test file that shows the problem, but does not contain any unnecessary packages and code. * Used drivers/programs. * Version information about used packages and programs. * If you are using LaTeX, then add "\listfiles" to the document. Then a list of version information is printed at the end of the LaTeX run. * Please no other files than the minimal test file. The other files .log, .dvi, .ps, .pdf are seldom necessary, so send them only on request. * Please .zip or .tar.gz your file(s) before sending them! Bug address ----------- Bug reports can be send to the maintainer: H.-Martin Münch <Martin [dot] Muench [at] Uni-Bonn [dot] de> 8 KNOWN PROBLEMS ================ Needs TeX-Format LaTeX2e 2022-11-01 or newer; for older formats an older papermas package version is available at https://web.archive.org/web/20190417084752/https://mirror.ctan.org/install/macros/latex/contrib/papermas.tds.zip
