SYNOPSIS

amstex [first-line]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this version of T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

The A\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’M\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’ST\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X language is described in the book The Joy of TEX. A\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’M\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’ST\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X is a T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X macro package, not a modification to the T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X source program, so all the capabilities described in tex(1) are present.

The A\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’M\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’ST\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X macros encourage writers to think about the content of their documents, rather than the form. The ideal, not always realized, is to have no formatting commands (like \(lqswitch to italic\(rq or \(lqskip 2 picas\(rq) in the document at all; instead, everything is done by specific markup instructions: \(lqemphasize\(rq, \(lqstart a section\(rq.

For authors more familiar with L\h’-0.36m’\v’-0.15v’A\h’-0.15m’\v’0.15v’T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X, an AMS-supported package called amsmath.sty is available, among others.
