% This option re-defines the \maketitle command to generate a standard
% Computing Service handout banner. It currently only works for an
% 11pt article (though I may fix it oneday)

% Just modify the textwidth a bit to center the text on the page


% The title is made up of information supplied by the \title, \author
% and \date commands, along with an extra command \docnumber. The
% date defaults to the current month and year.

May\or June\or July\or August\or September\or October\or

% Commented maketitle to avoid use of postscript printer Yin Kean.

% Technical documents don't look very good with indented paragraphs,
% so set parindent to zero, and increse parskip. To do this job properly,
% the space above and below all of the list making enviroments should be
% reduced by this ammount as well - again I may do this someday.

\setlength{\parskip}{7pt plus 2pt minus 1pt}

% Some extra help with including examples of computer input/output is rather
% handy. Here is a definition of the alltt enviroment (like verbatim, but
% still recognises \, { and }) and example (like alltt, but indented)
