This package creates scalebars for maps, diagrams or photos. 
It was designed for use with cave maps but can be used for 
anything from showing a scalebar in kilometers for topographic 
maps to a scalebar in micrometers for an electron microscope image.

To produce the style file run:
    latex scalebar.ins
    This will produce scalebar.sty which needs to be copied to 
    a suitable directory under your local texmf directory.
To produce the documentation run:
    latex scalebar.dtx
    This will produce scalebar.dvi documentation.

To produce an index for the documentation:
    makeindex -s gind.ist scalebar
    latex scalebar.dtx

To produce a change history for the documentation:
    makeindex -s gglo.ist -o scalebar.gls scalebar.glo
    latex scalebar.dtx

Files supplied in this package:
    scalebar.ins   Batch file, run through LaTeX
    scalebar.dtx   Docstrip archive, run through LaTeX.
                   Lots of examples on how to use the macro 
		   already formatted for you in PDF format.
                   LaTeX source for the examples.
