\section{Prerequisistes}
You should have installed a TeX distribution (MiKTeX or TexLive). How to do so can be found by searching the internet.
Following a medium install of texlive some extra packages are required to be able to use this template.
These packages are:
\begin{itemize}
\item droid
%TODO: finish package requirements
\end{itemize}
The particular packages required following MiKTeX are unknown as it was not tested with this.
%TODO: Test with MiKTeX
\section{Getting Started}\label{start}
You probably have downloaded the templates as a zip file.
This zip file should be extracted to the tex-mf folder that is probably in the same place as where your tex distribution was installed.
For TeXLive this defaults to `C:\textbackslash texlive` on Windows. It can be found by running `kpsewhich -var-value=TEXMFHOME`.
The structure of this folder should results as so is as so:
\begin{lstlisting}
+-texmf
+-bibtex
| +-bib
| | +-ecsdocs
| +-bst
| +-ecsdocs
+-doc
| +-latex
| +-ecsdocs
+-templates
| +-latex
| +-ecsdocs
+-tex
+-latex
+-ecsdocs
\end{lstlisting}
The `templates\textgreater latex\textgreater ecsdocs` folder contains the files to get you started.
The base file is `Thesis.tex` for a thesis and `Progress.tex` for a progress report.
The base files have dependancies for the sections and the figures.
These files are: `Definitions.tex`, `Introduction.tex`, `Conclusion.tex`, `AppendixA.tex`, `figure.eps`, `ECS.bib`.
These files are designed as a starting point for the structure of your thesis.
To start using the templates, copy the base file and the dependancies into your working directory.
You are then free to edit them.
\section{Common Changes}
\subsection{University Structure Changes}
The template assumes that you are in the \groupname, \deptname, \facname at the \univname.
This can be easily changed at the top of your latex file by redefinition of the variables.
These commands are:
\begin{lstlisting}
\university {\texorpdfstring{\href{http://www.soton.ac.uk}
{University of Southampton}}
{University of Southampton}}
\UNIVERSITY {\MakeUppercase{\univname}}
\department {}
\DEPARTMENT {\MakeUppercase{\deptname}}
\group {}
\GROUP {\MakeUppercase{\groupname}}
\faculty {}
\FACULTY {\MakeUppercase{\facname}}
\end{lstlisting}
The all caps command version must be run after changing the normal case command for it to change the default. The university example here also has a link embedded.
More detail can be found in the class docs file. Found in `doc\textgreater latex\textgreater ecsdocs` of the texmf directory discussed in Section~\ref{start}.
The other common commands already exist in the top level template file.
