Is it possible to use IEEEtran commands in standard latex classes, e.g. \documentclass{article}? I want to import IEEEtran as a package, not a documentclass.

You can load the IEEEtrantools package. See Appendix C of the IEEEtran documentation. There doesn't seem to be any independent documentation of the package in TeXLive except for a .txt. file that points to Mike Shell's webpage: IEEEtranstools.

Thanks! I knew there was something like that; just got an error putting \usepackage{IEEEtr}. Anyhow; thanks! – eli May 17 '13 at 14:14
