# The TeX and LaTeX Catalogue

##### CTAN

This is a catalogue of TeX and LaTeX related packages and tools, mostly available on CTAN, the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network. Most entries have a link to a location on the local CTAN directory hierarchy which takes you to the source directory for that entry.

The catalogue is quite large (approaching 200K). It is advisable that you access it from your nearest CTAN under help/Catalogue/ (load either catalogue.html or catalogue.html.gz - the latter is about 10% the size of the former). The following is a collection of direct links to the catalogue directory on some of the alternative CTAN backbone nodes and mirrors:

Alternatively, you could download and save locally the generic version (or the much smaller gzipped version) with links to the Walnut Creek archive.

In the following catalogue, links on the entry names take you directly to on-line documentation for that entry (these are either WWW home pages or gziped Postscript---or DVI---documents located at various places on the World Wide Web).

This catalogue is regularly updated. Comments, corrections, enhancements, and additions are more than welcome and can be sent to Graham.Williams@cmis.csiro.au. The original source database is maintained in BibTeX format from Canberra, Australia.

The catalogue is organised alphabetically: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

systems/win32/winedt/

A state-of-the-art text editor and Shell for Windows95 (and Windows NT or Windows 3.x). Can edit huge, multiple, text files in the usual Windows95 way (c.f. Word). It uses a Multiple Documents Interface (MDI) and follows or extends Windows' Standards in every respect. WinEdit supports (LaTeX) Syntax Highlighting and Input/Output ASCII Code Translation Tables and has comprehensive context-sensitive Help. The Shell can be customised to run with different utilities and is particularly suitable for writing TeX documents. By defining utilities (such as TeX, LaTeX, BibTeX, DVI Driver, Spell Checker), most of the common tasks while writing a TeX document or a project are reduced to clicking a Tool Bar Button or selecting a Menu Command. Latest recorded version is 1.41-a. (7 Jun 1996)

## Other Sources

This current catalogue has evolved over quite some time. It attempts to fill a gap that I often come across in finding things on CTAN. The aim is to build a database of all available tools on CTAN. Contributions are sought and I will continue to maintain the source database (as a BibTeX document). It will continue to be freely available, both as source and as HTML. I am also working an a BibTeX style to produce a properly printed version of the catalogue.

Particular thanks to those who have contributed entries and ideas. Piet van Oostrum supplied quite a few one line descriptions. Sebastian Rahtz added many more entries particularly to act as an index for the TUG TeX Live CD.
