You are not allowed to change this readme file.

You should get the following files:

  docstrip.cmd     Command file for docstrip.tex to produce float.sty.

  readme           This file.

  bigsign.doc      `bigsign' style for LaTeX. You have to run it
                   through the docstrip.tex program to produce the
                   corresponding style file.
  bigsign.tex      Driver for bigsign documentation. See notes in this

  bigsdemo.tex     Small sample LaTeX input file that demonstrates
                   some of the features of the bigsign style file.

The docstrip.tex program is contained in the multicol package (MZ1).
You should be able to get all these files through the same channels
as this package.

To produce the style files please run docstrip.tex  through LaTeX
and answer the question
 `Command file docstrip.cmd found. Use it (y/n)?'
with `y'. This will generate all sty files.  If you already have
older versions of the files, docstrip will ask whether or not you
want to overwrite those versions.

Distribution of unchanged versions:
  You are NOT ALLOWED to take money for the distribution or use of
  these files except for a nominal charge for copying etc.

  Redistribution of unchanged files is allowed provided that all files
  listed in the corresponding package README file are distributed
  including this readme file.

  If you receive only some of these files from someone, complain!
  However, if these files are distributed by established suppliers as
  part of a complete TeX distribution, and the structure of the
  distribution would make it difficult to distribute the whole set of
  files, *those parties* are allowed to distribute only some of the
  files provided that it is made clear that the user will get a
  complete distribution-set upon request to that supplier (not me).

  Notice that this permission is not granted to the end user.

Generation and distribution of changed versions:

  The generation of changed versions of the files included in the
  packages is allowed under the following restrictions:

  - You rename the file before you make any changes to it.

  - You acknowledge the origin of the changed version in the file and
    keep the information that it (or a changed version) has to be
    distributed under the restrictions mentioned in this file.

  The distribution of changed versions of the files included in the
  packages is allowed under the following restrictions:

  - You provide the user with information how to obtain the original
    package or, even better, distribute it with your files.  

  - You make sure that the changed versions contain a notice that
    prevents that others to take money for distribution or use of your
    files, i.e. they have to be distributed under the restrictions
    mentioned in this file.

  - You inform us that you created a changed version of the files.
    This is only necessary if you want to distribute it to others.
