LaTeX curricula vitae with the CurVe class

Didier Verna


CurVe is a LATEX2e class for writing curricula vitae (cv). It provides a set of commands to create headers, rubrics, entries in these rubrics etc. CurVe will then format your cv with a consistent layout while you can just concentrate on the contents. The layout of a CurVe cv is highly customizable. CurVe also has a very special feature known as the flavor mechanism: it is able to manage different "flavors" (versions) of your cv simultaneously. CurVe is distributed under the terms of the LPPL license. This paper describes the features available in version 1.11.
