# LaTeX Help

Here are some hints and help for latex. Feel free to
download any of the files. For the moment the site is a work in
progress.

### dalthesis.cls

You can download dalthesis.cls (for thesis preparation in LaTeX at
Dalhousie) from:
dalthesis.cls.
Here is a more updated dalthesis.cls:

This file does not necessarily reflect current FGS regulations. Please
have a format check done with FGS to ensure that you have the proper
formatting.

Here is an example of the main file for your thesis:
masterfile_example.tex.

### Make your own presentation!

### LaTeX Presentation (Winter
2006)

Here are my slides from my presentation
LaTeX Pres.

### fullpict.sty

For the "scaledpicture" environment, which greatly simplifies doing
diagrams and pictures in LaTeX, you need this file
fullpict.sty.
For more information please see the documention fullpict.doc.

### graphs.sty

For using the "graph" environment, there are a bunch of files that you
need. All these can be found on the following link (from the creator's
website):
www.cs.umu.se/~drewes/graphs
The file "GraphsInfo.ps" gives the documentation for the package.
All the other files must be put in one directory, all together, where you
are going to use them. For more details, see the documentation.

### Category Theory
Diagrams

Another very useful diagram drawing package is the one by Michael Barr
avaiable on the following
site
This is not included by "\usepackage" rather it is inputed at the
beginning of the file. So before "\begin{document}" put the command
"\input{diagxy.tex}".

### Including .ps and .eps
files

To include .ps and .eps files in you LaTeX document, you will have to
include the package epsfig.sty.
