1 INTRODUCTION
==============

This LaTeX2e package provides the environments footnoterange
and footnoterange*. Multiple footnotes inside these
environments are not referenced as e.g. "1 2 3" but as
"1-3", i.e. the range (from first to last referred footnote
at that place) is given. Depending on loading of hyperref
package and use of its hyperfootnotes-option the references
are hyperlinked. (References to footnotes in the
footnoterange* environment are never hyperlinked.)
This material is subject to the LaTeX Project Public License
(LPPL). See http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/
licenses.lppl.html for the details of that license.


2 DOWNLOAD
==========

`footnoterange' is available on CTAN:
  CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/footnoterange/

Running
tex footnoterange.dtx
generates the files
footnoterange.ins, footnoterange.drv, footnoterange.sty,
and footnoterange-example.tex.

Also a ZIP file is provided that contains these files,
the manual (footnoterange.pdf), the compiled example
(footnoterange-example.pdf), and this README, already
sorted in a TDS tree:
  CTAN:install/macros/latex/contrib/footnoterange.tds.zip

`CTAN:' means one of the `Comprehensive TeX Archive Network'
nodes or one of its mirrors. This is explained in
  http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=archives

The CTAN stuff will be mirrored automatically from the
ftp server, so
  ftp://ftp.tug.org/pub/tex/footnoterange/
corresponds to
  CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/footnoterange/


3 INSTALLATION
==============

Installation with ZIP file in TDS format
----------------------------------------
The ZIP file `footnoterange.tds.zip' contains the files
sorted in a TDS tree. Thus you can directly unpack the
ZIP file inside a TDS tree.
(See CTAN:tds.zip for an explanation of TDS.)
Example:
  cd /...somewhere.../texmf
  unzip /...downloadpath.../footnoterange.tds.zip
Do not forget to refresh the file name database of this
TDS tree.
Example:
  texhash /...somewhere.../texmf

Manual installation
-------------------
a) Download the footnoterange files from CTAN.
   If necessary, unpack them.
b) Generate the package and driver files:
     tex footnoterange.dtx
c) Install the file `*.sty' in your TDS tree:
     cp *.sty TDS:tex/latex/footnoterange/
   Replace `TDS:' by the prefix of your TDS tree
   (texmf directory).
d) Create the documentation (if necessary), e.g.
     pdflatex footnoterange.dtx
     makeindex -s gind.ist footnoterange.idx
     pdflatex footnoterange.dtx
     makeindex -s gind.ist footnoterange.idx
     pdflatex footnoterange.dtx
e) Update the databases if necessary, e.g. for teTeX:
     mktexlsr .../texmf
f) Create the footnoterange-example.pdf (if necessary), e.g.
     pdflatex footnoterange-example.tex
     pdflatex footnoterange-example.tex
     pdflatex footnoterange-example.tex
g) Copy the documentation files to
   "TDS:doc/latex/footnoterange/":
   README, footnoterange.pdf, footnoterange-example.tex,
   footnoterange-example.pdf.


4 ADDITIONAL PACKAGES
=====================

footnoterange loads other packages:
* ltxcmds, http://ctan.org/pkg/ltxcmds
* xspace, http://ctan.org/pkg/xspace
which again load other packages
(see the result of the \listfiles command in the log-file
 of the example).


5 PACKAGE COMPATIBILITY
=======================

footnoterange should be loaded quite late, i.e. after
footnote handling is changed by other packages.
If the hyperref package is used, footnoterange should
be loaded after hyperref.

7 BUG REPORTS
==============

A bug report should contain:
* Comprehensive problem description. This includes error or
  warning messages.
* \errorcontextlines=\maxdimen can be added in the
  TeX code to get more information in TeX error messages.
* Minimal test file that shows the problem, but does not
  contain any unnecessary packages and code.
* Used drivers/programs.
* Version information about used packages and programs.
* If you are using LaTeX, then add "\listfiles". Then
  a list of version information is printed at the end
  of the LaTeX run.
* Please no other files than the minimal test file.
  The other files .log, .dvi, .ps, .pdf are seldom
  necessary, so send them only on request.
* Please .zip or .tar.gz your file(s) before sending them!

foot­noterange – Ref­er­ences to ranges of foot­notes

The pack­age pro­vides en­vi­ron­ments foot­noterange and foot­noterange*. Mul­ti­ple foot­notes in­side these en­vi­ron­ments are not ref­er­enced as (e.g.) “1 2 3 4” but as “1-4”, i.e., the range (from first to last re­ferred foot­note at that place) is given. If hy­per­ref pack­age and use of its hy­per­foot­notes-op­tion the ref­er­ences are hy­per­linked. (Ref­er­ences to foot­notes in the foot­noterange* en­vi­ron­ment are never hy­per­linked.)
