Own LaTeX Packages

Some of my LaTeX packages:

svn-multi

Use subversion keywords inside LaTeX documents

Please visit also the main website of this package.

This package lets you use Subversion keywords like $Id$ inside LaTeX-packages and typeset the values (revision, author, date) anywhere you like in the document.

A very similar package is svn which lacks a good support for multi-file LaTeX-documents.

If you have a large LaTeX document which spans over multiple files - in the majority of cases one main file plus one file per chapter - then every file has its own keyword values. When typesetting them e.g. on the titlepage or in the footer you need the values of the most current file. My package svn-multi determines these by its own and writes them into an auxiliary file with the extention ".svn" which will be read back at the next LaTeX compile run (like the TOC). Usage instructions can be found at the leading comments of the package file.

rcs-multi

Use RCS keywords inside LaTeX documents
