Help with package manually install

Postby mia67 » Thu Apr 07, 2016 3:46 am

Hello, I am new to latex. Recently I would like to use latex to add 100 pictures with some format to a single pdf file. I find that if I can use loop command, it would save me tons of times. However, I can never successfully figure out how to use loop in latex.

Then I find that latex has loop package and I was trying to install it in my computer. So I down the package with forloop.ins and forloop.dvi ONLINE. But I can never successfully install one. :oops:

If anyone of you can give me some suggestion, that would be really appreciated.

Thanks a lot in ahead of time.

Hi Mia,

I guess you already solved the problem a long time ago. For the case somebody else stumbles across this topic, let me add an answer.

For installing the forloop package manually, one needs to download

  • forloop.dtx
  • forloop.ins

and then run latex forloop.ins or pdflatex forloop.ins (or compile in your LaTeX editor). This creates the actual package file forloop.sty.
