DoX consists of the following files:

- README (this file)
- dox.dtx
- dox.el
- dox.ins

* Description

The doc package provides LaTeX developers with means to describe the usage and
the definition of new commands and environments. However, there is no simple
way to extend this functionality to other items (options or counters for
instance). DoX is designed to circumvent this limitation, and provides some
improvements over the existing functionality as well.

* Installation

If you are building DoX from the tarball you need to execute the following
steps in order to extract the necessary files: 

[pdf]latex dox.ins -> will create the style file dox.sty
[pdf]latex dox.dtx -> (twice) will create the documentation files dox.pdf or
                      dox.dvi. Note that dox.pdf is already part of the

After that, you need to install the generated documentation and style file to
a location where LaTeX can find them. For a TDS-compliant layout, the
following locations are suggested:


If you're an AUC-TeX user, you may also install the file 'dox.el' in a
suitable AUC-TeX style directory.

	Have fun!

dox – Ex­tend the doc pack­age

The doc pack­age pro­vides LaTeX de­vel­op­ers with means to de­scribe the us­age and the def­i­ni­tion of new macros and en­vi­ron­ments. How­ever, there is no sim­ple way to ex­tend this func­tion­al­ity to other items (op­tions or coun­ters, for in­stance). The DoX pack­age is de­signed to cir­cum­vent this lim­i­ta­tion.
