The vutinfth document class is a LaTeX2e-based template for all theses written
at the Faculty of Informatics at the TU Wien. This package includes the
document class and its documentation as well as an example document that
includes a short introduction to LaTeX.

The vutinfth document class is developed using a GitLab-supported Git
repository. You can find it at
where a history of the development process is given. If you encounter problems
with using vutinfth, use the Issues section of GitLab to provide a description
and to alert the developers of your issue. Furthermore, you can use the Issues
section to request features or give suggestions.

To use the vutinfth class, it has first to be generated from the documented
source file vutinfth.dtx. This is achieved by executing the build script for
Windows systems (build-all.bat) or Unix-based systems (build-all.sh). Since the
generation process uses LaTeX itself, make sure that the LaTeX installation is
The generated document class vutinfth.cls has then to be placed in a directory
that is part of the search path of the LaTeX compiler. The folder of the thesis
file is a valid location.
The build scripts also generate an exemplary LaTeX document that serves both as
an introduction to LaTeX and as a verification of the installed typesetting
system. The example document is compiled to example.pdf and it should match the
provided reference solution example-ref.pdf.

When writing the actual thesis, the build functionalities of the used editor
are usually employed. For advanced functionalities of LaTeX, such as
glossaries, acronyms or indices, more complex build commands have to be used,
which often lead to difficulties.
Thus, additional build scripts for the thesis documents are provided for
Windows systems (build-thesis.bat) and Unix-based systems (build-thesis.sh).
These scripts do not rebuild the class file.
When using these scripts, the file name of the thesis file has to be provided
by directly editing these files.

The documentation can be found in vutinfth.pdf, which is generated directly
from vutinfth.dtx.
This document class is derived from the memoir class at
where additional documentation can be found.

Known Issues
The minitoc package is incompatible with this document class since the
incompatibility of the memoir document class is inherited. Use the titletoc
package as a replacement.

Hiroyuki Sakai provided valuable feedback that accounts for several
improvements in version 1.4.
