2 Page Layouts in the Plain Format Both types of page layout, as discussed in the preceding Subsection, are available in the plain format. For a ragged bottom page layout the user needs to call 10 The Page Breaking Algorithm macro \raggedbottom, while for a bottom flush page layout the user needs to call \normalbottom. The latter is also the default. The following conditional is true if and only if ragged bottom is the current page layout. \newif\ifr~ggedbottom The following macro \raggedbottom, when called, initiates ragged bottom page layout.

8, p. 120, for a version of the plain output routine, which incorporates the setup below. 4 \output = { \ShowBoxDepthOne{255} Next the page is written out to the dvi file. \shipout\box 255 } The following settings are identical to the defaults of the plain format. They are repeated here for improved documentation of the following example. 7 9 \baselineskip = 12pt \parskip = Opt plus lpt \topskip = 10pt Here is a macro which generates a short paragraph. 15 \def\APar{% This is just some short paragraph.

Pagetotal is set to zero because nothing has been contributed to the main vertical list yet. Each time material is added to the main vertical list, \pagetotal is increased by the vertical length (the sum of height and depth) of this material. A page break occurs when \pagetotal reaches \pagegoal, or in other words, when the current page is filled. This statement ignores penalties and insertions, which will be discussed later. 3 Printing \pagetotal and \pagegoal, \LogPageTG The macro \LogPageTG writes the current values of \pagetotal and \pagegoal into the log file.
