The uncial and alluncl packages provide Meatfont fonts based on the Uncial manuscript book-hand used between the 3rd and 6th century AD. The font consists of minuscules and digits, with some appropriate period punctuation marks. Both normal and bold versions are provided. This is one in a series of manuscript fonts. Access to the docmfp package is desireable but not essential. The distribution consists of the following files: README (this file) uncial.ins uncial.dtx tryfont.tex allfont.tex The distribution is provided under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL). To install the package: ======================= o run: latex uncial.ins, which will generate: uncl*.mf files *.fd files uncial.sty alluncl.sty o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them. For example: the uncl*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/uncial the *.fd and *.sty files to /texmf/tex/latex/local/uncial On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add lines like the following to texmf/fontname/special.map: uncl7.mf public uncial uncl10.mf public uncial uncl17.mf public uncial unclb7.mf public uncial unclb10.mf public uncial unclb17.mf public uncial On a teTeX distribution remember to run texhash after moving the files. (I use a teTeX distribution and found that if I didn't add to the special.map file, then the generated tfm and pk files were put in directories corresponding to the URW New Century Schoolbook font.) Other LaTeX distributions might require procedures similar to those for teTeX. To typeset the documentation: ============================= o run: latex uncial.dtx o if you want an index then run: makeindex -s gind.ist uncial o run: latex uncial.dtx o Print uncial.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual Note that the docmfp package is normally required for LaTeXing uncial.dtx. The package is available from CTAN in tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported. If you haven't got this and don't want to get it, then there are instructions in the first part of the .dtx file about how to edit it to avoid the use of docmfp. (docmfp is an extension of the doc package for describing METAFONT, or other non-LaTeX, code.) To check out your installation: =============================== o run: latex tryfont for a testpage of the Uncial fonts o run: latex allfont for a document typeset with the Uncial fonts 1999/05/15 Peter Wilson email@example.com
