NAME
       amstex - structured text formatting and typesetting

SYNOPSIS
       amstex [ first line ]

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual  page  is  not  meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this version of TeX can be
       found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The AmSTeX language is described in the book The Joy of TeX for nroff.  AmSTeX is a TeX macro  package,  not  a
       modification to the TeX source program, so all the capabilities described in tex(1) are present.

       The  AmSTeX  macros encourage writers to think about the content of their documents, rather than the form.  The
       ideal, not always realized, is to have no formatting commands (like ''switch to italic'' or ''skip  2  picas'')
       in  the  document at all; instead, everything is done by specific markup instructions: ''emphasize'', ''start a
       section''.

       AmSTeX is the official typesetting system of the American Mathematical Society, and nearly all of its  publica-
       tions are typeset using AmSTeX.  The online version of AMS Math Reviews uses AmSTeX input syntax for display of
       mathematical material.  AMS authors can provide editors with computer-readable AmSTeX files.

       For authors more familiar with LaTeX, an AMS-supported package called amsmath.sty is is available.
