DESCRIPTION: This directory contains the documented sources of the `mflogo' package for LaTeX(2e) and the corresponding font definition files that provide access to the METAFONT and METAPOST `logo' fonts. The `mflogo' package defines the font commands |\logofamily| and |\textlogo| to access the `logo' fonts directly. It also defines the macros |\MF| and |\MP| for the METAFONT and METAPOST logos in terms of these font commands, which ensures that the logos will follow font changes just as the |\TeX| logo does and always did. To use this package, you'll need the complete and up-to-date set of `logo' fonts, located in the directory CTAN:fonts/mflogo. To facilitate the installation, the directory containing the `logo' fonts is made available through a symbolic link `fonts', so that the contents of CTAN:fonts/mflogo is automatically included as a subdirectory if you download this directory as a `.zip' or `.tar.gz' archive. HISTORY: The `mflogo' package was developed in early 1994 when LaTeX2e was still in a beta-test phase. The first public release of `mflogo' (v1.2 in May 1994) predated the release of the first production version of LaTeX as of 1994/06/01. The second release of `mflogo' (v1.5 in September 1995) cleaned up some internals and fixed the space factor after the logos, just as it is done for the |\TeX| and |\LaTeX| logos in the LaTeX kernel. The present release of `mflogo' (v2.0 in March 1999) clarifies the distribution conditions, adopting the LaTeX Project Public License. OVERVIEW: The `mflogo' distribution consists of the following files: README - this file, i.e. the file you are reading Makefile - Makefile to install the LaTeX package mflogo.ins - LaTeX installation script mflogo.dtx - documented source of the LaTeX package Subdirectory `fonts': README - some notes on the `logo' fonts Makefile - Makefile to install the `logo' fonts Subdirectory `fonts/source': logo.mf - Metafont program to draw the logo charaters logo*.mf - Metafont drivers for various sizes and shapes Subdirectory `fonts/tfm': logo*.tfm - TeX font metrics for various sizes and shapes INSTALLATION: (1) Before installing the `mflogo' LaTeX package and processing the documentation, you should first make sure that you have a complete and up-to-date set of the `logo' fonts. If you're lucky, the `logo' fonts may have already been provided as part of your TeX distribution. Otherwise, proceed by changing to the `fonts' subdirectory and installing the fonts from there. if you have a TDS-compatible TeX installation, you may try to use the enclosed `Makefile' in the `fonts' subdirectory by calling cd fonts ; make install TEXMF=/wherever/texmf For manual installation of the font sources and font metric files, please consult the file `fonts/README'. (2) After the required fonts have been installed, return to this distribution directory. To unpack the `mflogo' LaTeX package and to typeset the documentation, proceed as follows: If you have a TDS-compatible TeX installation, you may try to use the enclosed `Makefile' by calling make TEXMF=/wherever/texmf make install TEXMF=/wherever/texmf For manual installation, run latex mflogo.ins to unpack the package file `mflogo.sty' and the corresponding font definition files `ulogo.fd' from the source file `mflogo.dtx'. To typeset the documentation, run (pdf)latex mflogo.dtx to generate `mflogo.dvi' and/or `mflogo.pdf'. This requires the `mflogo' and, of course, the `logo' fonts. Finally, to install the `mflogo' package, copy the files `mflogo.sty' and `ulogo.fd' to TEXMF/tex/latex/mflogo/ or wherever else your installation keeps LaTeX `.sty' files. TROUBLESHOOTING: The `mflogo' package boldly assumes that your TeX distribution provides a complete and up-to-date version of the `logo' fonts, including some non-standard variants and some extra characters that were absent from earlier (pre-1993) versions. While it should no problem to regenerate PK-bitmap fonts from the updated Metafont sources, if necessary, some problems may arise when using PostScript Type 1 versions of the `logo' fonts. Unless you happen to have access to some commercial versions of the up-to-date `logo' fonts in Type 1 format as sold by Y&Y Inc., it is highly recommended to use the freely-distributable versions by Taco Hoekwater, which are available from CTAN archives in: CTAN:fonts/cm/utilityfonts/logo/ps-type1/hoekwater/logo*.pfb It is no longer recommended to use the freely-distributable versions of `logo' fonts provided by the American Mathematical Society, which are available from CTAN archives in: CTAN:fonts/cm/ps-type1/bluesky/logo*.pfb Unfortunately, those fonts are out-of-date and do not provide a complete set of sizes and shapes required by `mflogo' package. Happy TeXing!
