These files compound the package "codepage". This package translates all the characters above 128 from differents codepage into TeX characters. It works with all variant of TeX (Plain, LaTeX 2.09, LaTeX2e). However, the printing of documentation and the installation of the code need LaTeX2e (or a recent version of the DOC package). The file "demo.zip" (binary file) contain two files with the same poem from Arthur Rimbaud (a french poet). The first file is written using the code page 850, the second using the code page ISO Latin set 1. Then you will have at least a version of the two files which do not correspond to your code page. Once all the files from the package "codepage" are installed in your TeX's input directory, you can typeset them with LaTeX 2.09 (since these file were packed on a Unix machine, you should probably use the "-a" option when you do the unzip). To generate all the files of the package "codepage", the following command should be issued: latex codepage.ins To generate a french introduction to the package, the following command should be issued: latex frintro.drv To print all the documentation in english (4 pages of introduction on how to use the package and 45 pages about the code of package), the following command should be issued: latex codepage.drv send your comment, bug or remarks to alain (dot) aubord (at) sourire (dot) ch.
