This package contains the following files: - `Readme': this file. - `dramatist.dtx': the package source file. - `dramatist.ins': the installation driver file. In order to get file `dramatist.sty' you have to run tex on `dramatist.ins' (you'll get also the example files). In order to get documentation you have to run latex on `dramatist.dtx'. Then move `dramatist.sty' in a directory where TeX looks for style files and move documentation files in the directory you like. N.B.: if you have a file `docstrip.cfg' in your system you only need to create directories <basedir>/tex/latex/dramatist and <basedir>/doc/latex/dramatist - TeX will automatically move the files in these directories.

Changed name of counter 'linenumber' to 'verselinenumber' in order to mantain compatibility with package 'poemscol'. v1.2c Fixed a conflict with the spanish extension of `babel'.
