12. Skribe User Manual -- Slide Package

This chapter describes the facilities Skribe offers authoring slides. In order to access the functionalities described in this chapter, it is require to introduce a (skribe-load "slides.skr") expression at the beginning of the document. The Slide package supports two skribe-load user options: advi and prosper. The first one tells Skribe to generate slides for the Advi presenter. The second one tells Skribe to generate slides for the LaTeX prosper package.
