About Lollipop and its manual. You have obtained a package containing the Lollipop format and its manual. The manual is a pretty good illustration of the power of Lollipop, but there is also a file 'address.tex' which contains example macros for an address book. Lollipop is still under development. The manual contains some remarks about what is still to be done. If you have any questions, remarks, suggestions (or if you want to voice your appreciation :-) , feel free to contact me: Vafa Khalighi firstname.lastname@example.org Here is how much of TeX's memory you used: 1194 strings out of 496579 16173 string characters out of 6202690 72655 words of memory out of 5000000 3270 multiletter control sequences out of 15000+600000 11241 words of font info for 40 fonts, out of 8000000 for 9000 19 hyphenation exceptions out of 8191 24i,4n,24p,187b,562s stack positions out of 5000i,500n,10000p,200000b,80000s Output written on lollipop-manual.dvi (59 pages, 155468 bytes).

lollipop – TeX made easy
Lollipop is “TeX made easy” — it is a macro package that functions as a toolbox for writing TeX macros. Its main aim is to make macro writing so easy that implementing a fully new layout in TeX would become a matter of less than an hour for an average document. The aim is that such a task could be accomplished by someone with only a very basic training in TeX programming.
Thus, Lollipop aims to make structured text formatting available in environments where typical users would switch to WYSIWYG packages for the freedom that such a mechanism offers.
In addition, development of support for Lollipop documents written in RTL languages (such as Persian) is underway.
