CAUTION : ALL FILES IN V5,9994 HAVE CHANGED since the last distribution.

\begin{french}
<< Desole, mais les fichiers README sont tous en anglais. Par contre les 
   pages web et la documentation sont en francais. >> --bg
\end{french}

This material was designed to help (La)TeX users to print french documents
i.e. according to french typographic habits.

[*** INVALID since 2006/03 ***
The checksum field that appears in allmost files contains a CRC-16 checksum as
the first value, followed by the equivalent of the standard UNIX wc (word
count) utility output of lines, words, and characters.  This is produced by 
Robert Solovay's checksum utility.]

Before installation ask yourself the question: is my TeX engine
installation able to process any 8-bit character (ie a char with
decimal code upper than 127)? If not, may be you don't have:
   either the good fonts (look at the EC for example),
   or the good TeX V3 engine (look also at MlTeX).

The french style directory, as distributed by his author is composed of 
other directories. The main directory hosts the following files and
directories:         (The number of bytes of this README/README.pdf may differ)

YOUR "TO DO" LIST if you have Unix/Linux but not GNU make command (or don't
=================    want to modify the complex makefile.gen file);
                  if you have Win* but not want to use install.bat 
                                               or mikinstall.bat for MikTeX;
                  if you have MacOs X or heigher but don't want to use the 
                                               prepared makefiles,
                  THEN:
1- Print and read ALIRE.pdf (which is in french). This is the users
   guide and the installation guide _for you_. A users guide is also provided
   in the doc directory, this one is _for users_. 
   Print also the file engines/*.pdf where
   * is the name of your TeX engine (web2c, textures, tetex, ...).
2- Are you willing to use keyboard.dat? to generate the 
   7-bit <==> 8-bit translators you will need to complete installation, 
   so update it to your needs in directory inputs.
3- kb7to8 and kb8to7 generation: look at kb2lex.tex
4- Are you willing to create a new format with the french files? If yes, go
   to the initex directory and then come back here.
5- If you are not using the default keyboard encoding, 
   translate fxabbrev.tex to frabbrev.tex with the pgm kb7to8.
6- compile frlicense.dat (in the inputs directory) with LaTeX to start
   your own one month trial period.
7- Go to the tst directory for validation.
8- If not already done: copy the inputs directory files to your usual
   directory TEXINPUT (i.e. for everybody).
9- After a trial month, if you want to continue to use French you
   should REGISTER (please look at that file).

Optionally, look at the contrib directory.
 
I hope you enjoy it,
    
    Bernard GAULLE
