README
The 'ydoc' class and packages
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

'ydoc' provides macros and environments to document LaTeX packages and classes.
It is an alternative to the 'ltxdoc' class and 'doc' package.
It targets a different layout and tries to provide more modern styles (xcolor, hyperref, etc.).

This is an alpha release. It should not be used yet for other packages.

INSTALL
~~~~~~~

This package might be part of your LaTeX distribution (TeX Live, MikTeX, ...) and then is installable using
the distributions package manager (TeX Live: 'tlmgr install ydoc').
However, it is also manually installable using the following ways:

1) TDS ZIP FILE
A TDS ZIP file includes all files in a installable format and using the required directory structure.
Simply unzip the TDS ZIP file over your TEXMF tree.

The TDS ZIP file can be downloaded from CTAN:
http://mirrors.ctan.org/install/macros/latex/contrib/ydoc.tds.zip


2) DTX FILE
The 'ydoc.dtx' file includes all required files, which can be extracted by compiling it using TeX (not LaTeX):

    tex ydoc.dtx

To build the documentation compile the same file using LaTeX (preferable 'pdflatex') multiple times:

    pdflatex ydoc.dtx
    pdflatex ydoc.dtx
    pdflatex ydoc.dtx

Copy all files to their correct location of your local TEXMF tree.
For example under Linux a personal TEXMF is normally located at '~/texmf' ('$HOME/texmf').
The files can be installed using the following Linux commands. For 

    mkdir -p "${TEXMF}/tex/latex/ydoc/"
    mkdir -p "${TEXMF}/source/latex/ydoc/"
    mkdir -p "${TEXMF}/doc/latex/ydoc/"
    mkdir -p "${TEXMF}/tex/generic/ydoc/"
    cp ydoc.sty ydoc.cls ydoc-code.sty ydoc-desc.sty ydoc-doc.sty ydoc-expl.sty ydoc.cfg "${TEXMF}/tex/latex/ydoc"
    cp ydoc.dtx ydoc.ins "${TEXMF}/source/latex/ydoc"
    cp ydoc.pdf README "${TEXMF}/doc/latex/ydoc"
    cp ydocincl.tex ydocstrip.tex "${TEXMF}/tex/generic/ydoc"

Update the tree database file (might be not required for modern versions and personal TEXMF trees):

    texhash ${TEXMF}

ydoc – Macros for documentation of classes and packages

The package provides macros and environments to document packages and classes. It is an (as yet unfinished) alternative to the ltxdoc class and the doc or xdoc packages. The aim is to provide a different layout and more modern styles (using the xcolor, hyperref packages, etc.)

This is an alpha release, and should probably not (yet) be used with other packages, since the implementation might change. Nevertheless, the author uses it to document his own packages.
