acmsmall support for Scribble

 #lang scribble/acmsmall package: acmsmall

The scribble/acmsmall language provides support for the acmsmall paper format, used by various ACM journals.

The language provides all of the bindings of scribble/base in addition to additional procedures for supporting acmsmall-specific typesetting.

To select which journal to format for, the first expression after the "#lang" line should be the journal identifier. For example, when formatting for TOPLAS, use "#lang scribble/acmsmall acmtoplas". The complete list of identifiers is available in the acmsmall style documentation available through the above link.

If using the scriblib/autobib library, ensure that the define-cite form is used with the acmsmall-style setting for #:style.

Also see the example document to get started.

Known differences in actual TeX-based acmsmall documents:
  • Bibliography entries are: "Author. Year. Title, ...".

  • Figures have no hrules, and captions look different.

  • Tables use the ACM’s special commands.
