Cadet TeX — An experimental format for TeX

Cadet TeX started in 2001 as an experimental format whose general design should follow milestones settled by plain TeX while adding some higher level features common in other formats and missing in plain TeX.

This experimental format aims at defining clean and extensible programming paradigms.

Installation guide

The installation procedure is based on the portable build system [BSD Owl Scripts][bsdowl-home] written for BSD Make.

  1. Verify that prerequisites are installed:

    • BSD Make
    • [BSD OWl][bsdowl-install]
    • GNU Autoconf
    • Noweb
    • Perl
    • TeX
  2. Get the source, either by cloning the repository or by exploding a distribution tarball.

  3. Optionally run autoconf to produce a configuration script. This is only required if the script is not already present.

  4. Run ./configure, you can choose the installation prefix with --prefix.

  5. Run make build.

  6. Finally run make install.

  7. Edit the file texmf.cnf

Depending on how BSD Make is called on your system, you may need to replace make by bsdmake or bmake in steps 5, 6, and 7. The GNU Make program usually give up the ghost, croaking *** missing separator. Stop. when you mistakingly use it instead of BSD Make.

Step 7 requires that you can su - if you are not already root.
