Introduction

ArcSchool.zip and ArcSchool.tgz are archives of the Logo, Letterhead, Fax, Memorandum, Handout and Minutes styles, classes and templates suitable for the School of Electrical and Information Engineering. (Right-click the links to download).

The zip file has been tailored to MsLoss users (CRLF in text files), and the tarball to unix users (LF only). The Mac (CR only) has NOT been catered for :-)

I have reverted to my previous practice of putting `Arc' in front of all packages that I maintain. Like Matlab, LATEX ultimitely has a flat namespace, and several name conflicts have ocurred. Theoretically, I should extend this to every defined command, but I have a finite life.

The use of dvips is obviously assumed. Undo the archive within your own texmf tree (for TDS-compliant distributions).

School logo history

Anton Frolich created the vector graphic Wits logo, as opposed to the bitmapped thingy I did years ago. He did this in Corel Draw for his MSc. front cover. (crest.eps)

Using LATEX and PSTricks, I created the school logo, viewable on a full page by ghostscript, after a learning curve of PSTricks!

dvips -E (and etc) created the eps form, with a bad bounding box (documented reasons). I manually edited the bounding box produced until the entire logo was visible. Thus the eps is in truly vector form. (Don't forget that even the cm fonts are “type 1” nowadays. (Thus the definititive logo is ArcSchlLogo.eps

The file ArcSchlLogoTrial.tex shows the logo from 5mm to 150mm. Nice and crisp. Try the pdf file

(Since most people can't parse sed scripts, I'll repeat myself manually:)

The Styles and Classes

Letterhead

Prints on plain paper. `ArcSchlHead.sty' is the Style File, `.tem' is the template file to copy for a new letter. `schllet' is a simple shell script to do that. An example is ArcSchlHeadEx.pdf.

Fax

Prints on plain paper. `ArcFax.sty' is the Style File, `.tem' is the template file to copy for a new fax. `schlfax' is a simple shell script to do that. An example is ArcFaxEx.pdf.

Memo

Prints on plain paper. `ArcMemo.sty' is the Style File, `.tem' is the template file to copy for a new memo. `schlmemo' is a simple shell script to do that. An example is ArcMemoEx.pdf.

Handout

Prints on plain paper. `ArcHandout.sty' is the Style File, `.tem' is the template file to copy for a new memo. `schlhandout' is a simple shell script to do that. An example is ArcHandoutEx.pdf.

Minutes

Prints on plain paper. `ArcMinutes.sty' is the Style File, `.tem' is the template file to copy for a new memo. `schlminutes' is a simple shell script to do that. An example is ArcMinutes.pdf.
