The main idea behind this document is to demonstrate various either
contributed or inspired chapter styles for the memoir class.
If you have style you would like to contribute a style/implementation,
please send it with a minimal example to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will include it into this document.
Memoir Chapter style Showcase -- README
The showcase source consists of one single file that includes
everything needed to compile the document.
MemoirChapStyles.tex -- source code
MemoirChapStyles.pdf -- compiled showcase
README -- this document
1.7e Added two new chapter styles, verly and hansen
1.7b An automatec build seems to have cropped a bit too much in
the TiKz example, fixed
1.7 Back in sync with the current memoir. Also added a TiKz based
style found online.
1.6 Added the jenor style, and prepared for a CTAN release.
1.5 A new mempatch version has been released including several new

the spacing after \chapter*

1.3: Added the reparticle, southall and chappell styles from the
memoir addendum. Thanks to David Chadd for reminding me.
How to compile this showcase document:
A fairly new LaTeX installation
pdfcrop (comes at least with TeX Live 2009)
pdftops (available through TeX Live 2009)
perl (see later)
Run the document once through latex or pdflatex.
This will create
and a lot of
Now run (you might need to change the permissions on process.pl)
./process.pl -f MemoirChapStyles.styles
This will process all of the *-style files mentioned in MemoirChapStyles.styles.
It will run
pdfcrop XXX-style.pdf tmp.pdf
mv tmp.pdf XXX-style.pdf
pdftops -eps XXX-style.pdf
(plus a little extra for the EQ style)
The reason for going over pdflatex, pdfcrop, pdftops is that dvips is
not good at creating correct bounding boxes for files that contain
postscript effects, pdfcrop does a much better job.
Then run latex or pdflatex on MemoirChapStyles.tex a few times to get all
references up to date.
