TCDE Bulletin Author Style

\ProvidesPackage{deauthor}[2002/04/01 Data Engineering Bulletin Author package]

% Undefine the \date command, so no date is printed with the title

% Undefine the titlepage environment so that articles don't try to
% circumvent the journal's formatting conventions for the first page.
% This works for the article class, but causes trouble for reports and
% books since the \maketitle command is defined in terms of the titlepage
% environment.

% Undefine the \pagestyle and \thispagestyle commands so that articles
% don't try to change the page style.

% Define common theorem-like environment created with the \newtheorem
% command. First we have to undefine them all since we just defined them
% in the previous article. Also, define a proof environment and a \qed
% symbol to end the proof.
% This initial hack redefines the theorem-like environments of latex to
% follow the theorem heading with a colon (e.g. Theorem 4:) and print
% the theorem text in roman font.

\newcommand{\squarebox}[1]{\hbox to #1{\hfill\vbox to #1{\vfill}}}

% Define an example environment, just another theorem environment but with
% independent numbering.

% Define an indented abstract environment.

% Reset all section and figure counters so that an article's section
% and figure numbers begin with 1.

% Place page formatting parameters (like page dimensions) here
% These should match the dimensions in bulletin.sty.

% We want the title to be typeset in boldface, and the author names
% to be typeset in italics. We can hardwire this for the title,
% but trying to do the same thing for the author causes confusion
% due to the use of \@author in \@maketitle in article.sty.
% We also want to print a copyright notice and the bulletin title at
% the bottom of every first page.
