1 INTRODUCTION
==============

This LaTeX package provides the environments footnoterange
and footnoterange*. Multiple footnotes inside these
environments are not referenced as e.g. "1 2 3" but as
"1-3", i.e. the range (from first to last referred footnote
at that place) is given. Depending on loading of hyperref
package and use of its hyperfootnotes-option the references
are hyperlinked. (References to footnotes in the
footnoterange* environment are never hyperlinked.)

2 DOWNLOAD
==========

`footnoterange' is available on CTAN:
https://www.ctan.org/pkg/footnoterange

Also a ZIP file is provided that contains the files:
the manual (footnoterange.pdf),
the compiled example (footnoterange-example.pdf),
driver (footnoterange.drv), footnoterange.dtx,
installation file (footnoterange.ins), 
the style file (footnoterange.sty),
and this README, already sorted in a TDS tree:

3 INSTALLATION
==============

Installation with ZIP file in TDS format
----------------------------------------
The ZIP file `footnoterange.tds.zip' contains the files
sorted in a TDS tree. Thus you can directly unpack the
ZIP file inside a TDS tree.
See https://www.ctan.org/TDS-guidelines for an explanation
of TDS.
Example:
  cd /...somewhere.../texmf
  unzip /...downloadpath.../footnoterange.tds.zip
Do not forget to refresh the file name database of this
TDS tree.
Example:
  texhash /...somewhere.../texmf

Manual installation
-------------------
a) Download the footnoterange files from CTAN.
   If necessary, unpack them.
b) Generate the package, driver, and example files:
     tex footnoterange.ins
   footnoterange.ins can also be created by
     tex footnoterange.dtx
c) Install the file `footnoterange.sty' in your TDS tree:
     cp footnoterange.sty TDS:tex/latex/footnoterange/
   Replace `TDS:' by the prefix of your TDS tree
   (texmf directory).
d) Create the documentation, if necessary, e.g.
     pdflatex footnoterange.dtx
     makeindex -s gind.ist footnoterange.idx
     pdflatex footnoterange.dtx
     makeindex -s gind.ist footnoterange.idx
     pdflatex footnoterange.dtx
e) Update the databases if necessary, e.g. for teTeX:
     mktexlsr .../texmf
f) Create the footnoterange-example.pdf, if necessary, e.g.
     pdflatex footnoterange-example.tex
     pdflatex footnoterange-example.tex
     pdflatex footnoterange-example.tex
h) Copy the documentation files to
   "TDS:doc/latex/footnoterange/":
   README, footnoterange.pdf, footnoterange-example.tex,
   footnoterange-example.pdf.


4 ADDITIONAL PACKAGES
=====================

footnoterange loads other packages:
* ltxcmds, https://www.ctan.org/pkg/ltxcmds
* letltxmacro, https://www.ctan.org/pkg/letltxmacro
which again load other packages
(see the result of the \listfiles command in the log-file
 of the example).


5 PACKAGE COMPATIBILITY
=======================

footnoterange should be loaded quite late, i.e. after
footnote handling is changed by other packages.
If the hyperref package is used, footnoterange should
be loaded after hyperref.

7 BUG REPORTS
=============

A bug report should contain:
* Comprehensive problem description. This includes error or
  warning messages.
* \errorcontextlines=\maxdimen can be added in the
  TeX code to get more information in TeX error messages.
* Minimal test file that shows the problem, but does not
  contain any unnecessary packages and code.
* Used drivers/programs.
* Version information about used packages and programs.
* If you are using LaTeX, then add "\listfiles". Then
  a list of version information is printed at the end
  of the LaTeX run.
* Please no other files than the minimal test file.
  The other files .log, .dvi, .ps, .pdf are seldom
  necessary, so send them only on request.
* Please .zip or .tar.gz your file(s) before sending them!

8 KNOWN PROBLEMS
================

The footnoterange package does not handle \footnotemark
in footnoteranges (see \fnr@rangefootnotemark in the
documentation).

Down­load the con­tents of this pack­age in one zip archive (401.3k).

foot­noterange – Ref­er­ences to ranges of foot­notes

The pack­age pro­vides the en­vi­ron­ments foot­noterange and foot­noterange*. Mul­ti­ple foot­notes in­side these en­vi­ron­ments are not ref­er­enced as (e.g.) “1 2 3" but as “1-3”, i.e., the range (from first to last re­ferred foot­note at that place) is given. If the hy­per­ref pack­age is loaded with en­abled hy­per­foot­notes-op­tion, then the ref­er­ences are hy­per­linked. (Ref­er­ences to foot­notes in foot­noterange* en­vi­ron­ments are never hy­per­linked.)
