Here is a LaTeX example file where I'm experimenting with the *LaTeX* "ifthen" package (ifthen.sty).

These are simple examples, where I'm playing with the if/then decision making capability with the LaTeX "ifthen" package. These two examples are pretty easy, but make a nice introduction to the "ifthen" package.

Without any further ado, here are my LaTeX if/then examples:

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{article} \author{Al Alexander} \title{} \usepackage{ifthen} \begin{document} %----------------------------------------- % (1) a simple test to get started. %----------------------------------------- \newcommand{\printTrueOrFalse}[1] { \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{true}}{TRUE}{} \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{false}}{FALSE}{} } \printTrueOrFalse{true} %----------------------------------------- % (2) print the day of the week %----------------------------------------- \newcommand{\dayOfWeek}[1] { \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{0}}{Sunday}{} \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{1}}{Monday}{} \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{2}}{Tuesday}{} \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{3}}{Wednesday}{} \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{4}}{Thursday}{} \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{5}}{Friday}{} \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{6}}{Saturday}{} } \dayOfWeek{0} \dayOfWeek{1} \dayOfWeek{2} \dayOfWeek{3} \dayOfWeek{4} \dayOfWeek{5} \dayOfWeek{6} \end{document}
