    The pacioli package provides fonts designed by Fra Luca de Pacioli
in 1497. The font is uppercase letters together with punctuation
and some analphabetics; no lowercase or digits.

    The distribution consists of the following files:
README (this file)
pacioli.ins
pacioli.dtx
tryfont.tex

    The distribution is provided under the terms of the LaTeX
Project Public License (LPPL).

    To install the package:
o run: latex pacioli.ins, which will generate:
       cpc*.mf files
       *.fd files
       pacioli.sty
o run: latex pacioli.dtx
o run: makeindex -s gind.ist pacioli
o run: latex pacioli.dtx
o Print pacioli.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual 
o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them.
    For example: the cpc*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/pacioli
                 the *.fd and .sty files to /texmf/tex/latex/local/pacioli
    On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add the following two
    lines to texmf/fontname/special.map:
      cpcr10.mf     public    pacioli
      cpcsl10.mf    public    pacioli
    On a teTeX distribution remember to run texhash after moving the files.

o run: latex tryfont  for a testpage of the Pacioli font
