 Please send me a private message, as I read de.comp.text.tex very
 irregulary. From Version 1.7 I'll do the support.

 Unfortunatly I don't have the time to read usenet so you won't reach
 me in de.comp.text.tex, but if you're member of TEX-D-L, you may
 contact me there.


The following describes the general procedure for installing this
bundle. If you have a TeX system compatible to TDS (most of the newer
TeX systems are), please read INSTALL.TXT.

  Copy all files to a directory, where TeX/LaTeX can find them.
  Run pdfcprot.ins through LaTeX, e.g. at UNIX type:
    tex "&latex" pdfcprot.ins
    latex pdfcprot.ins
  You'll get a a new sty- and cpa-file. Copy them to
  the corresponding LaTeX-directory. See INSTALL.TXT for further
  Do not forget to run the initialization procedures specific to your
  TeX distribution, e.g. if you use teTeX, run 'texhash'

  If you want the documentation for the package (highly RECOMMENDED)
  including the implementation, you have to run the dtx-files through 
  LaTeX. Again, using a UNIX system
    tex "&latex" pdfcprot.dtx
    latex pdfcprot.dtx
  Do that three times to get correct references and table of contents
  To get an index run:
    makeindex -s gind.ist  pdfcprot
    makeindex -s gglo.ist -o pdfcprot.gls pdfcprot.glo

  And after run again latex (once should be sufficient).

  To report a bug, run just mail me.
