> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> Here's a copy of my LaTeX2e style file for typesetting programs
> and algorithms in my favourite style without having to type
> in endless tabbing commands.  Each line is set in math mode
> so all the indentation and spacing is done automatically.
> The notation |variable_name| can be used within normal text,
> maths expressions or programs to indicate a variable name.
> Use \origbar to get a normal | symbol in a program.
> The commands \A, \B, \R, \T and \Z typeset the corresponding bold
> letter with the next object as a substript (eg \S1 typesets {\bf
> S$_1$} etc). They now cope with primes as well, (eg $\S2'''$). The
> program.sty file can be easily edited to reflect your favoured style.
> Typesetting a program is as easy as:
> \(\IF x \ne 0 \THEN |long_name|_{123} = x^y \FI\)
> See the program-demo.tex file for examples.
> The file should work with or without AMSLaTeX.
