CTAN package update: greektex

Date: November 11, 2004 2:39:09 PM CET
A package has been updated on tug.ctan.org, and should make its way soon to your favorite mirror. Here is the README file for the update:
The files of this package make it possible to process with LaTeX2e files written in "Greeklish", i.e., a mixture of Greek and English. They are based on Silvio Levy's classical Greek ("plain") fonts, and they have evolved from earlier distributions for Latex209, in 1993 by Moschovakis and in 1994 by Moschovakis and Spiliotis. To use them, you need to have an ASCII editor that can handle mixed Greek and English input, such as notepad or (better) winedt, and a full LaTeX2e installation with the capability to automatically compile metafont files when they are called, e.g., Miktex or a linux installation. To install and use these fonts, you need the following files, posted here: ywcl.zip This contains all the metafont files necessary to produce the Greek fonts. greektexdoc.pdf The document (in Greek). greektexdoc.tex The texfile of the document (as a sample). greektex.sty The main package. gehyphw.gr The hyphenation file. You should print greektexdoc.pdf, which has detailed instructions (in Greek) for installing and using this package and also illustrates the "look" of the fonts. As far as we know, all the programs in this package are in the public domain and they are offered without any obligation or guarantee, with the usual proviso that if you change any files you should also change their names.
