Direc­tory macros/latex209/contrib/trees/pstrees

This package consists of a preprocessor and some macro-definitions,
by which linguistics-style trees can be specified as convenient
indented lists, with spacing and line-drawing done automatically.

It depends on Emma Pease's tree-dvips package, available from
pub/TeXfiles on csli.stanford.edu, and requires the use of dvips
(Radial Eye Softrware) for the lines to be drawn automatically.

Files included are:

  trees.sty:  Macros for linguistics tree layout.

  trees.doc.txp/tex/dvi/ps:  Documentation for tree-formatting system,
   including a preprocessor and tree-layout macros.

  trees: executable (by Suns, at least) for tree-preprocessor.

  tree.c, etc.; makefile: source files for compilation of preprocessor.

  test.txp:  a (very) little test file.
