Summary:"Referencing People" package - Mr. / Ms. needed.


Till date I used CSV tools for creating certificates. But never ventured to peep into datatools. But today I had gone through the manual and particularly the People package impressed me. That's what I am look for. But one thing is missing in it. From \Gender field I want to get the output "Mr." for male and "Ms." for female persons so that I can address Ms. .... or Mr. ... May be it might have already been there and I missed it. Thank you

Gone through Chapter 11. Mr. and Ms. option is not given.

It may be defined with \persontitle and linked to {gender}. If Male or male or M or m then it should be Mr. and if Female, female or F or f then it should be Ms.

Thanks once again.

Not necessarily. You can't assume a person's title based on their gender.


I think this feature is already addressed by the "person" package which is distributed with the datatool bundle. (See chapter 11 of the datatool user guide.)

Update 2020-02-29: I'm closing this as "not implemented" as I think it's inappropriate to make assumptions about a person's title. You need a separate field so that it can be set according to the person's preference.
