You can use the
commands to create a title page in which the vertical and horizontal
spacing is done for you automatically. This contrasts with the method
the previous section, in which the
@sp command is needed to
adjust vertical spacing.
commands at the beginning of a line followed by the title, subtitle,
@title command produces a line in which the title is set
flush to the left-hand side of the page in a larger than normal font.
The title is underlined with a black rule.
@subtitle command sets subtitles in a normal-sized font
flush to the right-hand side of the page.
@author command sets the names of the author or authors in
a middle-sized font flush to the left-hand side of the page on a line
near the bottom of the title page. The names are underlined with a
black rule that is thinner than the rule that underlines the title.
(The black rule only occurs if the
@author command line is
followed by an
@page command line.)
There are two ways to use the
@author command: you can write
the name or names on the remaining part of the line that starts with
@author by Jane Smith and John Doe
or you can write the names one above each other by using two (or more)
@author Jane Smith @author John Doe
(Only the bottom name is underlined with a black rule.)
A template for this method looks like this:
@titlepage @title name-of-manual-when-printed @subtitle subtitle-if-any @subtitle second-subtitle @author author @page ... @end titlepage
