And the ingredients are ...
- You must either have a running GNU-Linux system supporting make, ghostscript, ps2pdf, acroread, the bash and a complete LaTeX system. Or you use a MS window system with installed MikTeX and Texmaker
- Your LaTeX system must contain Koma Script, the jurabib package and BibTeX.
- You could have installed eclipse and its plugin Texlipse, winefish or vi for editing the LaTeX files.
- You should have installed JabRef for maintaining bibtex files.
- For studying and/or enhancing the fodina-Service-For-Readers-Document please load down the fodina-csr-howto-package. You can get it as a tar.gz or as a zip file.
- For writing your own classical scholar research please load down the readily prepared myCsrf. You can get the packages also as a tar.gz or a zip file. Both packages contain the myCsrf-README file which explains the usage and configuration.
After having installed all components and extracting the fodina-daldas package or myCrsf you can directly start your work: change into the package directory and call 'make fodinaClassicalScholarFoNoDe.dvi' respectively 'make mycsrf.dvi'. The other options are explained by the mycsrf-README.
For a very long time I had wished to get a system for generating old-fashioned classical scholar texts. Recently I did the first part of my homework. And now I've extended the formerly offered single example file as a complete development framework for generating classical scholar researches. Here is the English abstract of a self explaining article demonstrating the classical scholar style which offers footnote-based annotations.
If you want to learn more details please read the more elaborated German version: firstly it also explains why - in my opinion - this style is (somewhat) better than the style recommended by the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. And secondly it also describes shortly how such documents can be generated on the base of jurabib.
