A TeXnicard template is a directory consisting of several files in the formats:
The names of the files in a template include:
- code (mandatory, but may be empty)
- info (mandatory)
- schema (mandatory for major templates only)
In addition to the above, a template may also include subdirectories.
The directory may be anywhere in the file system; a user configuration file maps URIs to the directory path. Graphics may be in any format; the user configuration file specifies what programs to use to decode them.
To determine the identification of the template, look in the info file. The line starting with "M:" is the URI identifying the major template (either this template is a major template, or it refers to the major template that this minor template belongs to). The line starting with "m:" is the URI identifying the minor template; for a major template, this line is omitted.
