README for the tools bun­dle

This bun­dle con­sists of pack­ages writ­ten and sup­ported by mem­bers of the 3 Project Team.

The doc­u­mented source code of each pack­age is in a file with ex­ten­sion .dtx. Run­ning on the file tools.ins will pro­duce all the pack­age files, and some as­so­ci­ated files.

So you should first pro­cess tools.ins:

latex tools.ins

The files with ex­ten­sions .sty and .tex (in­clud­ing a file whose name is just .tex) should then be moved to a di­rec­tory on 's stan­dard in­put path.

Doc­u­men­ta­tion for the in­di­vid­ual pack­ages may then be ob­tained by run­ning on the .dtx files.

For ex­am­ple:

latex array.dtx

will pro­duce the file array.pdf, doc­u­ment­ing the ar­ray pack­age.

The file manifest.txt con­tains a list of the main files in the dis­tri­bu­tion to­gether with a one-or-two line sum­mary of each pack­age.


Copy­right is main­tained on each of these pack­ages by the au­thor(s) of the pack­age.
