Package: EPSDICE Version: 2.1 Date: 2007/02/15 Author: Thomas Heim (firstname.lastname@example.org) Purpose: A scalable dice font License: LPPL Distributed files: epsdice.ins -- docstrip installer file epsdice.dtx -- source and sample doc dice.pdf -- dice drawings in pdf format README -- this file epsdice.pdf -- documentation (from LaTeX -> dvips -> pstopdf) Generated files: epsdice.sty -- the package epsdice.cfg -- a config file dice.eps -- dice drawings in eps format Test installation: With all distributed files in your present working directory, run epsdice.ins through LaTeX. To test the package, you can reproduce the documentation (epsdice.pdf) by running epsdice.dtx (twice) through pdfLaTeX or through LaTeX -> dvips -> pstopdf. If you decide to keep the package, move the files epsdice.sty epsdice.cfg dice.eps dice.pdf to /tex/latex/epsdice in your local texmf tree according to the instructions in epsdice.dtx/ins. Changes from version 2.0: - clean up the documentation - minor bug fix in generated file dice.eps: removed spurious comment line at beginning Changes from version 1.2: (suggested by Christoph Zurnieden; Thanks!) - CHANGE TO USER INTERFACE: \epsdice now recognises an OPTIONAL ARGUMENT [black] for reversed colors (white dots on black background) - additional drawings (originally by Christoph Zurnieden) in PostScript format Changes from version 1.1: - Introduced `@' in counter name (program encapsulation) - More detailed documentation of the PostScript code is now included in the sample document - renamed files with drawings to `dice.eps' and `dice.pdf' - Now distributed as .ins and .dtx files (plus binary .pdf) - *** NO CHANGES TO USER INTERFACE *** Changes from version 1.0: (suggested by Rolf Niepraschk; Thanks!) - Removed package option [dvips] for graphicx. - Changed bounding box specifications to viewport specification to facilitate clipping in pdflatex. - Added epsdice.pdf (generated from epsdice.eps). - Replaced documentation by dicetest.tex.
