uwmslide LaTeX Slide Class
by Eric Benedict, 2000, 2002
The uwmslide style file can be used to produce slide
presentations which are similar to that produced by
PowerPoint. The style file produces landscape slides
with a logo in the upper left corner of the slides and the
slide number in the lower right corner. Several different
slide environments are defined to make the
production of a presentation faster and easier.
The present style file only produces the slides for the
presentation; however, eventually, there are plans to
allow the production of speaking notes as well as handout
pages. Maybe once I graduate...
An example file is provided (test.tex). Run it and look
at the output along with the source file. Things should be

The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a Package
may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some semblance of
artistic control over the development of the package, while giving the users
of the package the right to use and distribute the Package in a more-or-less
customary fashion, plus the right to make reasonable modifications.
"Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
created through textual modification.
"Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not
been modified, or has been modified in accordance with the
wishes of the Copyright Holder as specified below.
"Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
copyrights for the package.
"You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing
"Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the
basis of media cost, duplication charges, time of people
involved, and so on. (You will not be required to justify it to
the Copyright Holder, but only to the computing community
at large as a market that must bear the fee.)
"Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item
itself, though there may be fees involved in handling the
item. It also means that recipients of the item may
redistribute it under the same conditions they received it.
1.You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of
the Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided
that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated
2.You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder. A
Package modified in such a way shall still be considered the
3.You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way,
provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file
stating how and when you changed that file, and provided that you do
at least ONE of the following:
a.place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise
make them Freely Available, such as by posting said
modifications to Usenet or an equivalent medium, or placing
the modifications on a major archive site such as
uunet.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include
your modifications in the Standard Version of the Package.
b.use the modified Package only within your corporation or
c.rename any non-standard executables so the names do not
conflict with standard executables, which must also be
provided, and provide a separate manual page for each
non-standard executable that clearly documents how it
differs from the Standard Version.
d.make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright
4.You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
a.distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library
files, together with instructions (in the manual page or
equivalent) on where to get the Standard Version.
b.accompany the distribution with the machine-readable
source of the Package with your modifications.
c.give non-standard executables non-standard names, and
clearly document the differences in manual pages (or
equivalent), together with instructions on where to get the
d.make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright
5.You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this
Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this
Package. You may not charge a fee for this Package itself. However,
you may distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly
commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial)
software distribution provided that you do not advertise this Package
as a product of your own. You may embed this Package's interpreter
within an executable of yours (by linking); this shall be construed as
a mere form of aggregation, provided that the complete Standard
Version of the interpreter is so embedded.
6.The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whomever
generated them, and may be sold commercially, and may be
aggregated with this Package. If such scripts or library files are
aggregated with this Package via the so-called "undump" or
"unexec" methods of producing a binary executable image, then
distribution of such an image shall neither be construed as a
distribution of this Package nor shall it fall under the restrictions of
Paragraphs 3 and 4, provided that you do not represent such an
executable image as a Standard Version of this Package.
7.C subroutines (or comparably compiled subroutines in other
languages) supplied by you and linked into this Package in order to
emulate subroutines and variables of the language defined by this
Package shall not be considered part of this Package, but are the
equivalent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these subroutines do
not change the language in any way that would cause it to fail the
regression tests for the language.
8.Aggregation of this Package with a commercial distribution is
always permitted provided that the use of this Package is embedded;
that is, when no overt attempt is made to make this Package's
interfaces visible to the end user of the commercial distribution.
Such use shall not be construed as a distribution of this Package.

promote products derived from this software without specific prior
