The eledmac package is for typesetting critical editions. The eledpar
package is an extension of eledmac enabling parallel typesetting in
columns or on facing pages.

Eledmac and eledpar are successors of ledmac and ledpar. Ledmac was a
LaTeX port, and extension, of the plain TeX EDMAC, TABMAC and EDSTANZA

The package is available on [CTAN](http://www.ctan.org/pkg/eledmac).

eledmac – Typeset scholarly editions

A package for typesetting scholarly critical editions, replacing the established ledmac package. Ledmac itself was a port of the plain EDMAC macros.

The package supports indexing by page and by line numbers, and simple tabular- and array-style environments.
