rgrp authored
1 Could target plain LaTeX but preference is to use a pre-existing package:
2
3 * dramatist: fairly recent, good docs and reasonably sophisticated.
4 * <http://tug.ctan.org/cgi-bin/ctanPackageInformation.py?id=dramatist>
5 * <http://www.tug.org/texlive/Contents/live/texmf-dist/doc/latex/dramatist/>
6
7 * play: slightly more recent and usable as both class and package had
8 problems getting act/scene etc working
9 * <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/play/>
10
11 * plari: Looks old and v. basic (also a class not a package)
12 * <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/plari/>
13
14 * drama: old (1996) and no longer updated.
15 * <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/frankenstein/unsupported/drama.pdf>
16
17 * xmlplay: specifically for Bosak Shakespeare and uses play
18 * <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/xmlplay.html>
