1. That’s really great for a little fun with LaTeX. Why can’t the Tex Live Utility find the package coffee4?

• I totally agree. The package is not (yet) part of the main distribution. But you can always manually install additional packages.

Cheers, Tom.

more fun with coffee (not tex related, sorry): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZigVLW09YY

as for the package, if it’s on ctan and released under a free software license, it’ll make its way into TL in another week or two, after the release freeze is over.

• Thanks for the link and the clarification. Best, tom.

I can’t get the pdf since I get the error:

! Illegal unit of measure (pt inserted).

/
l.18 \cofeAm{1}{1.0}{0}{5.5cm}{3cm}

I use TexShop on Mac OS X.

Any suggestion?

Thanks, Jose.

• It would help if you provided a few lines of code to illustrated what you are doing and for me to reproduce the issue. Thanks, Tom.

4. This would be perfect for a draft copy! Love it. 🙂

• Thanks! Tom.

There seems to be a complication for me. The Xoff and Yoff rotate with the angle…

If angle is 0, Xoff is horizontal and Yoff is vertical
But if the angle is 90, they turn accordingly…

• You are right, thanks for pointing this out. Here is an example where the stains coincide after rotation and translation in different directions.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{coffee4}
\begin{document}
\cofeAm{1}{1}{0}{0cm}{5cm}
\cofeAm{1}{1}{90}{5cm}{0cm}
\Blindtext
\end{document}
