I find myself sometimes in the position that I need to know the "official" syntax and behavior of LaTeX2e user macros or environments. I'm talking about common things like
Usually I find something by doing a Google search for
latex <command>, e.g.
latex minipage. There are a couple of online helps in English and German available, but there are mostly incomplete. To stick with the example of
minipage, most of them do not include the second and third optional argument.
Is there a comprehensive online or PDF manual freely available which explains the full syntax of LaTeX2e user level macros/environments?
Wanted features would be:
- Comprehensive (all arguments, all macros/environments, default values for optional arguments)
- Well organized, so that all macros/environments are quickly found.
- Nicely formatted
I had a look at the LaTeX wikibook and other online sites, as well as
source2e, but none of them really fulfill the above points. I realize that there might be books which handle these but I'm looking for something digital.
I personally need this because I like to support or emulate such standard macros or environments in my packages, but normal user will find a comprehensive manual also useful.
If there is no such document I'm might add it to my TODO list.
