LaTeX Package : probsoln v3.04
Last Modified : 2012-08-23
Author : Nicola L.C. Talbot
Files : probsoln.dtx - documented source file
probsoln.ins - installation script
The package probsoln.sty is designed for lecturers who have
to generate new problem sheets for their students on a
regular basis (e.g. yearly) by randomly selecting a
specified number of problems defined in another file.
This means that you can easily generate a new problem sheet
that is different from the previous year, thus alieviating
the temptation of students to seek out the previous year's
students and checking out their answers. The solutions to
the problems can be defined along with the problem, making
it easy to generate the solution sheet from the same source
code.
Required packages:
ifthen
amsmath
xkeyval
To extract the code do:
latex probsoln.ins
This will create the file probsoln.sty which should be placed
somewhere on your TeX path. It will also create several
sample documents, sample*.tex, and sample databases used
by the sample documents. If you can't bring yourself to
read the manual, please try out these sample
documents to give yourself an idea of what to do.
To extract the documentation do:
latex probsoln.dtx
latex probsoln.dtx
Comment out \OnlyDescription if you want the documented code.
