Page numbering “<n> of <m>”
Finding the page number of the last page of a document, from within
the document, is somewhat tricky. The lastpage and
zref-lastpage packages define a label
LastPage whose number is right (after sufficiently many
passes through LaTeX, of course). The memoir class also
defines a “last page” label.
The documentation of the fancyhdr package spells out exactly
how one might actually use this information to produce page numbering
as suggested in the question.
- fancyhdr documentation
- macros/latex/contrib/fancyhdr (or browse the directory); catalogue entry
- macros/latex/contrib/lastpage (or browse the directory); catalogue entry
- Distributed as part of macros/latex/contrib/oberdiek (or browse the directory); catalogue entry
