## Commands

Commands to the latex compiler are newlones that steat with the "\" character.
\document{memoir}
\begin{document}
\end{document}


## Basic Document Structure

A basic latexdocument has 2 main parts.
• Preamble
• Document

### Preamble

The preamble is not rendered in your document and is mostly used for setting up the environment for when the compiler runs.

### Document

The document part is the main bulk of what will be rendered in your dicument. It is mandatory and starts with a \begin{document} and ends with an \end{document} command. The \begin{} and \end{} commands define an environment in your document but the document environment is and should always be the topmost one you use.

### Example

\documentclass{memoir}

\title{A title}
\date{} # No date will be printed if left blank
\author{James Chip}

\begin{document}
\pagenumbering{gobble}
\maketitle
\newpage
\pagenumbering{arabic}
Hello World!
\end{document}


## Text sections

Sections, subsection and paragraphs are handled as follows:
\section{Section Title}

Text that goes in the section under the title.

\subsection{A Subtitle}

Text that goes in the subsection under the title.

\subsubsection{A Sub-subtitle}

Even more text to put in.

\Paragraph{}

Paragraph text. This will be indented while the others will not.


Sections have a default numbering sccheme on them. If you wish to avoid numberiing on your sections then use \section*{TITLE} instead.

## Paragraph setup

To set paragraph indent and spacing use the following:
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}
\setlength{\parskip}{2em}
