README for the `ncctools' bundle ================================ This `bundle' consists of LaTeX2e packages written and supported by Alexander I. Rozhenko. The documented source code of all packages is in files with extension `.dtx'. To install the bungle, run latex ncctools.ins It will produce the package files from all `.dtx' files. The files with extensions `.sty' should then be moved to a directory on LaTeX's standard input path. License Agreement ================= This material is subject to the LaTeX Project Public License. See http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/licenses.lppl.html for the details of that license. NOTE (docstrip version) *********************** **** **** If latex ncctools.ins **** produces the `docstrip interactive mode' prompt: **** **** * First type the extension of your input file(s): * **** \infileext= **** **** Then your version of docstrip is too old. **** Quit (eg by hitting `enter' to all questions) and get a newer **** docstrip.tex. It must be at least version 2.4. **** **** A suitable docstrip.tex may be found from `CTAN' archives such as **** ftp.dante.de tex-archive/macros/latex/unpacked/docstrip.tex **** **** Docstrip is part of the base LaTeX distribution, so if you have **** an old docstrip then your LaTeX is out of date and you may consider **** getting the whole of that directory and re-installing LaTeX. **** However you need to fetch only the file docstrip.tex to unpack **** this tools distribution with your existing format. Documentation for the individual documented packages may then be obtained by running LaTeX on the `.dtx' files. For example: latex manyfoot.dtx will produce the file manyfoot.dvi, documenting the manyfoot package. ***NOTE**** Copyright is maintained by Alexander I. Rozhenko. All the packages in this bundle are released under the restrictions detailed below. The file manifest.txt contains a list of files in the distribution.
