To install the package: o run: latex oldprsn.ins, which will generate: copsn*.mf files *.fd files oldprsn.sty o run: latex oldprsn.dtx o run: makeindex -s gind.ist oldprsn o run: latex oldprsn.dtx o Print oldprsn.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them. For example: the copsn*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/oldprsn the *.fd and .sty files to /texmf/tex/latex/local/oldprsn On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add the following line to texmf/fontname/special.map: copsn10.mf public oldprsn On a teTeX distribution remember to run texhash after moving the files. o run: latex tryfont for a testpage of the font 2000/09/16 Peter Wilson firstname.lastname@example.org
