2. Introduction

This package loads the `geometry' package by Hideo Umeki 
and lets you to use its main command, \geometry, 
not only in the preamble.

This package requires the `gmutils' package.

3. Installation

Just put the gmeometric.sty somewhere in the texmf/tex/latex branch.
Creating a /texmf/tex/latex/gm directory may be advisable if you
consider using other packages written by me.

Then you should refresh your TeX distribution's files'
database most probably.

4. Contents

The distribution of this package consists of the following three files.


5. Documentation

The last of the above files (the .pdf) is a documentation compiled
from the .sty file by running LaTeX on the gmeometric.sty file twice:
xelatex gmeometric.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 gmeometric.glo file, and then LaTeX
on gmeometricDoc.tex twice again.

MakeIndex shell commands:
  makeindex -r -s gmglo.ist -o gmeometricDoc.gls gmeometricDoc.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), gmverb.sty, gmutils.sty, gmiflink.sty and also
some standard packages: hyperref.sty, color.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

gmeometric – Change page size wherever it's safe

Changing the size of the typeset area is well-known to be a dangerous operation in documents. This package identifies the circumstances where the \geometry command of the geometry package may safely be used, (other, of course, than in the preamble of a document) and provides a mechanism for using it.

The package makes use of the author’s gmutils package.
