is a preprocessor for NROFF
text which enables users to label figures, displays, tables, and equations symbolically. This program then translates the labels into consecutive integers which may be printed in a variety of formats. In addition, prefixes and suffixes may be defined in such a way that they are automatically prepended or appended to the number. A number of different counters may be used, and the symbols may appear anywhere in the body of the paper. This document contains a tutorial as well as a detailed description of the program.
This describes an improved version of a program I wrote to number figures in my Ph.D. dissertation. A few other folks found it useful.
