                This file calls color and graphics packages
                without a driver option. 
                You *must* set up two files 
                                 color.cfg and graphics.cfg
                containing (for example)
                Before running this file.

rotex.tex       examples of use of rotating package.



latex graphics.ins

This will produce the 

.sty package files

Similarly you can run

latex graphics-drivers.ins

to produce the

.def driver files.

Not all supported drivers are included in this file as they are
maintained elsewhere.



Move files ending in .sty .def  to a standard TeX input directory.

Make a default option for your site by creating two files
     color.cfg and graphics.cfg
containing (if dvips is your default driver)

You may then LaTeX the user guide:
latex grfguide.tex.

graph­ics – Stan­dard graph­ics

The pack­age was de­signed to ac­com­mo­date all needs for in­clu­sion of graph­ics in doc­u­ments, re­plac­ing many ear­lier pack­ages used in 2.09. The pack­age aims to give a con­sis­tent in­ter­face to in­clud­ing the file types that are un­der­stood in your out­put, by use of ‘printer drivers’ (now known, sim­ply, as ‘drivers’). The dis­tri­bu­tion of the pack­age con­tains sev­eral drivers, but oth­ers (for ex­am­ple, pdf) are dis­tributed sep­a­rately. The pack­age also of­fers sev­eral means of ma­nip­u­lat­ing graph­ics in the course of in­sert­ing them into a doc­u­ment (for ex­am­ple, ro­ta­tion and scal­ing).

For ex­tended doc­u­men­ta­tion see ep­s­la­tex.

The pack­age is part of the graph­ics bun­dle, which is one of the col­lec­tions in the ‘re­quired’ set of pack­ages.
