pageframe.sty pgframedoc.tex pgframetest.tex "pageframe.sty" is a LaTeX style file primarily intended to assist in preparing books, although it is also useful when other types of documents are being designed. Using the "pageframe" option causes LaTeX to put corner marks and tag lines on the pages of the document, and optionally allows the user to include a graph-paper-like grid over the text area (for measuring indentations, space around heads or figures, etc.) and/or rules that outline the text area, header, and footer (so you can see the effects of such parameters as \textheight, \evensidemargin, \topsep, \footskip, etc.) and/or rules that outline the trimmed size of the page (assuming that the ultimate size of the document is smaller than the size of the paper on which it is being printed). "pageframe.sty" has been privately tested by me and a few friends who are doing book production work, so I think it's free of major bugs, but comments and suggestions for enhancements are very welcome. "pgframedoc.tex" is a (lengthy) documentation file (for LaTeX) that explains and illustrates the features provided by "pageframe.sty" (and incidentally explains a few quirks and even bugs of LaTeX that affect the use of "pageframe"). "pgframetest.tex" is a short document that illustrates the use of "pageframe" without explaining anything. NOTE ABOUT REDISTRIBUTION (ARCHIVE MAINTAINERS TAKE NOTE!) I put a lot of work into the documentation file (with help from beta testers). It is my wish that the style file "pageframe.sty" NEVER EVER be distributed without the documentation file "pgframedoc.tex". If you want to place these files in an archive, you may re-package the Unix-oriented compressed tar archive into ".arc" or ".zoo" or ".lzh" or ".shar" or other format, but PLEASE DO NOT place the style file itself (separately from the doc file) into your archive. Please DO NOT EVEN MAKE IT POSSIBLE for a user of your archive to retrieve the style file without the documentation file. Of course, this request also applies to "private" transfers: please NEVER EVER give anyone the style file without the documentation. [ Yes, I know about "doc.sty", but although I have successfully read documentation that was prepared with it, and extracted style files that are in that format, I haven't been able to find the file "doc.doc" that explains how to *create* a self- documenting style file. I don't have Volume 10 of TUGboat (which I believe included an article about it) -- I wasn't a TUG member back then -- and I didn't feel like deducing the usage of the "doc.sty" macros from other peoples' documentation files. ] --Cameron Smith email@example.com
