What's this?

This directory contains a LaTeX2e package for an easy and NFSS2-compliant 
use of the eiad font family created by Ivan A Derzhanski under

Obviously Plain-TeX users, etc, cannot use this package, but they
should know how to load fonts with the \font-command anyhow...

What is NOT provided here?

The fonts themselves are NOT in this directory. You can find them on
CTAN in the directory tex-archive/fonts/eiad/, so for example in
or	ftp://ftp.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/fonts/eiad
and mirrors of CTAN...

So you need the 6 *.mf-files contained in this place.

What IS provided here?

There are two additional mf-files: 
and two files to make the style file and the documentation:
(and this file (README) of course...).

What are these files?
In the documentation of the eiad-fonts there is described how to make
two additional mf-files. 
They are easy to produce, I admit, but this step might prevent someone
from using the eiad-fonts. And since I had to make these files for
using the fonts myself anyway, I think I should provide them here. So
I have done some of your work, made your life easier ;-) and I am using
7kB of CTAN space more...
In the 'Installation'-part of this document is described where to put
these files...

With the files eiad.* you can easily produce the style file and the
documentation, as described in the following...

It's easy. But I will explain it in full detail...

So you got the 6 *mf-files for the eiad-font-family created by  Ivan A
Derzhanski (see above for finding them, if you haven't), the two
*mf-files provided by me, eiad.ins and eiad.dtx. Good. 

In a TDS-conforming TeX-installation you now have to put the 8 *mf-files 
in the directory

If you have a TeX-installation which doesn't produce *tfm and
*pk-files on the fly, you have to produce them by hand.
On some TeX-installations (like teTeX, for example) there are some
map-files used by MakeTeX* for putting the produced *tfm and *pk-files
in the correct subdirectories.. So you should add 
@c Gaelic fonts: eiad font family
eiad10          public          eiad
eiadbf10        public          eiad
add the end of the file $TEXMF/fontname/special.map.

Now run the file eiad.ins through latex:
	latex eiad.ins
You get a file called 
Copy this in a TDS-conforming installation to 
or (since this is only one file) to

If you use a database for finding your files (like ls-R in teTeX) you
have to update it now (e.g. run 'texhash' for teTeX). Do this first
because we already need eiad.sty for producing the documentation...

Now you can produce the documentation:
	latex eiad.dtx
If you want a change history in the docs, now run
	makeindex -s ...  -o eiad.gls eiad.glo
where ... means the full path for the file 'gglo.ist'. With teTeX 0.4
you can say 
	makeindex -s `kpsewhich tex gglo.ist` -o eiad.gls eiad
Then run the file twice through latex again:
	latex eiad.dtx
	latex eiad.dtx
The resulting file
you can put in the TDS-conforming directory
or (since this is only one file) in

Using the package

To use the package you say 
in the preamble. The commands of this package are described in the
documentation (see the 'Installation'-part for getting the
documentation out of eiad.dtx.)
