The auncial and allauncl packages provide Meatfont fonts based on the Artificial Uncial manuscript book-hand used between the 6th & 10th century AD. The font consists of minuscules and digits, with some appropriate period punctuation marks. Both normal and bold versions are provided. This is one in a series of manuscript fonts. Access to the docmfp package is desireable but not essential. The distribution consists of the following files: README (this file) auncial.ins auncial.dtx tryfont.tex allfont.tex The distribution is provided under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL). To install the package: ======================= o run: latex uncial.ins, which will generate: auncl*.mf files *.fd files auncial.sty allauncl.sty o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them. For example: the auncl*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/auncial the *.fd and *.sty files to /texmf/tex/latex/local/auncial On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add lines like the following to texmf/fontname/special.map: auncl7.mf public auncial auncl10.mf public auncial auncl17.mf public auncial aunclb7.mf public auncial aunclb10.mf public auncial aunclb17.mf public auncial On a teTeX distribution remember to run texhash after moving the files. (I use a teTeX distribution and found that if I didn't add to the special.map file, then the generated tfm and pk files were put in directories corresponding to some vendor's font.) Other LaTeX distributions might require procedures similar to those for teTeX. To typeset the documentation: ============================= o run: latex auncial.dtx o if you want an index then run: makeindex -s gind.ist auncial o run: latex auncial.dtx o Print auncial.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual Note that the docmfp package is normally required for LaTeXing auncial.dtx. The package is available from CTAN in tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported. If you haven't got this and don't want to get it, then there are instructions in the first part of the .dtx file about how to edit it to avoid the use of docmfp. (docmfp is an extension of the doc package for describing METAFONT, or other non-LaTeX, code.) To check out your installation: =============================== o run: latex tryfont for a testpage of the Artificial Uncial fonts o run: latex allfont for a document typeset with the Artificial Uncial fonts 1999/05/22 Peter Wilson email@example.com
