OVERVIEW: This is LaTeX package 'wordlike' for simulating word
processor layout. The package consists of these files:

 * wordlike.ins
 * wordlike.dtx
 * wordlike.pdf

These packages are REQUIRED for running 'wordlike':
courier, geometry, helvet, mathptmx.
They are usually installed on a TeX system.

INSTALLATION is done in six steps:

 1. move wordlike.ins and wordlike.dtx into the same directory
 2. call latex wordlike.ins -> generates wordlike.sty
 3. call latex wordlike.dtx twice -> generates user guide wordlike.dvi
 4. move wordlike.sty to texmf-local/tex/latex/wordlike
 5. move wordlike.dvi to texmf-local/doc/latex/wordlike
 6. call mktexlsr/texhash for updating TeX's file name database

word­like – Sim­u­lat­ing word pro­ces­sor lay­out

The pack­age sim­u­lates typ­i­cal word pro­ces­sor lay­out: nar­row page mar­gins, Times, Hel­vetica and Courier fonts, \LARGE or \Large head­ings, and \sloppy type­set­ting.

The pack­age aims at mak­ing life eas­ier for users who are dis­con­tent with 's stan­dard lay­out set­tings be­cause they need a lay­out that re­sem­bles the usual “word­like” out­put.

The de­sign of the pack­age draws on sev­eral dis­cus­sions in the de.comp.text.tex and comp.text.tex news­groups that are re­ferred to in the man­ual.
