The LaTeX dinbrief class

Version: 3.5x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The dinbrief class implements a document layout for writing letters according to the rules of DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung), the German standardization institute. The class is Included in the distribution for Versions 4.1 and later; if you have an earlier version, the dinbrief class is available from the Comprehensive TeX Archive (CTAN) in the directory macros/latex/contrib/dinbrief/. These instructions explain how to add a new shell document to SWP or SW along with the necessary SWP or SW support files and typesetting specification files for the dinbrief class.

  1. From the MacKichan Software ftp site, download the file DIN Brief.shl and save it to a convenient subdirectory in the Shells directory of your SWP or SW installation. You can create a new subdirectory or place the file in any one of the existing subdirectories.

  2. Add the support files for the new shell:

    1. In the existing Styles directory of your SWP or SW installation, create a new directory called dinbrief.

    2. From our ftp site, download the files dinbrief.cst and dinbrief2.cst and save them into the new directory.

  3. Add the typesetting specification files for the dinbrief class:

    1. In the existing TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib directory of your SWP or SW installation, create a new directory called dinbrief.

    2. From our ftp site, download the files dinbrief.cfg, dinbrief.cls, and dinbrief.sty and save them into the new directory.

  4. In SWP or SW, choose File, then choose New, and select DIN Brief from the shell directory into which you saved the .shl file in step 1.

  5. From the Typeset menu, choose Preview to see a typeset view of the shell document.
