                      lineno.sty  v4.41
                    fnlineno.sty  v0.55

                         2011-02-16 

The LaTeX package lineno.sty provides line numbers on paragraphs.
After TeX has broken a paragraph into lines there will be line numbers
attached to them, with the possibility to make references through the
LaTeX \ref, \pageref cross reference mechanism.

2004-09-13 Uwe L"uck  [(UL)]  is new maintainer for lineno.sty. 

lineno.sty served the purpose for which I wrote it years ago.  Uwe
L"uck uses lineno.sty with his Ednotes package, which required quite a
few changes and fixes.  His package depends on lineno, therefore
Uwe agreed to take over the maintenance of lineno.sty.

lineno.sty v4.0 includes most of the well tested changes that Uwe
needs for Ednotes.  These changes blend well into the concepts of the
package, so I am happy to let it go.  

From here on it is Uwe's, and he may proceed to mangle it as he likes.
Expect some radical changes.  You may find him to be quite a bit
friendlier towards the poor souls who still use Windows :-).
Currently, you need some kind of Unix environment to extract the
source documentation from the sty file.

If some version 3 users run into difficulties with Uwe's newer
versions, but need a minor bug-fix in version 3, please do not
hesitate to ask me for help.  But all requests for new features or
major changes shall go to Uwe.

Cheers
Stephan


[ Thanks!  And please let me know as well should 
  compatibility problems arise!  The announced radical 
  changes are postponed again this time (v4.1).

Compatibility with other packages:

   wrapfig.sty   works since v2.05

   multicol.sty  works partly since 3.02.  
                 Do NOT use \linelabel.  Do NOT put a multicol in
                 internal vertical mode {table}, {figure}, etc.

   hyperref.sty  \ref to a \linelabel works since v3.03.

   longtable.sty broke with lineno.sty loaded, but not enabled. 
                 This is fixed in v3.04.

   amsmath.sty   loadable, but not fully supported, with v4.41

Installation and usage (UL, v4.1): 

   For being able to use ALL the new lineno.sty options, the 
   following files must be "visible" to (La)TeX ("visible" 
   explained below for beginners): 

     lineno.sty, edtable.sty, ednmath0.sty, ltabptch.sty 
 
   as above ("Home", note that clicking on "entire directory" 
   suffices); 

     longtable.sty -- from the standard LaTeX Tools bundle. 

   Usage always starts with loading lineno.sty by \usepackage. 
   The remaining .sty files are loaded automatically on the 
   lineno.sty options (and we recommend not to load them through 
   [the mandatory argument of] \usepackage). 
 
   For details, see lineno.tex/pdf and the .sty files mentioned 
   above--search especially for tabular and math mode. 
   (+ `print' below here). 
 
   "Visible to (LaTeX)": Some users don't understand this 
   "visibility" for a while, and indeed it may be somewhat 
   non-trivial. These users may find help in 

      http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/ednotes/visible.txt .

   E.g., former users of lineno.sty may just put all the .sty 
   files into the folder (at their workplace) where they had 
   placed lineno.sty before.                     (/UL, /v4.1)

To print the documented source:

   Take the style-file `lineno.sty', and feed it to a Un*x shell. 
   (Or download the extracted source documentation `lineno.tex'.)

      csh> source ./lineno.sty
      sh>  . ./lineno.sty

   [ I.e., type `sh lineno.sty' (e.g.) as a UNIX command line. 
     Problems with awk may arise. I therefore switched to nawk 
     in lineno.sty v4.00, but this may trouble you as well.    (UL) ] 

   (Please ignore the error message at the beginning about the iffalse.)
