Nieuws van CTAN — Een uittreksel uit de recente bijdragen in het CTAN archief (Dutch)
MAPS 28, 2002, 5-7
keywords: TeX, LaTeX, packages, CTAN, classes, memoir, KOMA script, soul, underline, ulem, mathpazo, fonts
abstract: Dit artikel beschrijft een aantal recente bijdragen uit
het CTAN archief. De selectie is gebaseerd op wat ik zelf
interessant vind en wat ik denk dat voor veel anderen
interessant is. Het is dus wel een persoonlijke keuze. Het
heeft niet de bedoeling om een volledig overzicht te geven.
De uitgebreidere bijdragen zijn ook geen handleidingen.
Beschouw het maar als een soort menukaart die de bedoeling
heeft om de lezer nieuwsgierig te laten worden.

TeXExec User's Guide (English)
MAPS 28, 2002, 36-52
abstract: This guide describes the uses and options of the texexec
program that is available in the ConTeXt distribution. The
options are invoked by calls on a command line, which are
words preceded by two hyphens as in —make. There are
options for running ConTeXt on your TeX file to produce
printable output, options to specify languages, an option
to make listings of (software program) files word for word,
options for conditional execution, for selecting pages
to print, for printing on differently sized paper, for
directing your output to a particular file, for conversion
of SGML and XML to TeX. If it is no problem to you to use
a command line and to occasionally look things up in the
help file or in this user s guide, you will find texexec
to be a useful, even indispensable tool for ConTeXt.

alternatively, leave the viewer and use vpp's facilities
to print selected pages to a one- or two-sided hardcopy
or an A5-booklet.

Shifted bullets in graphs with MetaPost (English)
MAPS 28, 2002, 69-72
abstract: With MetaPost fully integrated in ConTeXt using this
graphic language has become convenient. When we tried to
use John Hobby's `' package, however, it turned
out to require extra initializations and to produce
unacceptable, shifted data graphs. Solutions to both
problems are given.

abstract: For years I have used a home-made logo in Pictex
within LaTeX, together with name and address as
letterhead. Separate versions for myself and my wife were
pre-printed on an HP 300 DPI Laserjet. With MetaPost fully
integrated in ConTeXt, we decided to convert to MetaPost
and print the letterhead with each letter automatically. I
used the versatile ConTeXt layer mechanism and the mode
