About Lollipop and its manual.

You have obtained a package containing the Lollipop format 
and its manual.

The manual uses only Computer Modern, but there are a few
lines in `lollipop-manual.tex' that allow you to switch easily to Times
and Helvetica on Macintosh and Unix systems.

The manual is a pretty good illustration of the power of
Lollipop, but there is also a file 'address.tex' which
contains example macros for an address book.

Lollipop is still under development. The manual contains
some remarks about what is still to be done. If you have any
questions, remarks, suggestions (or if you want to voice
your appreciation :-) , feel free to contact me:

lol­lipop – TeX made easy

Lol­lipop is “TeX made easy” — it is a macro pack­age that func­tions as a tool­box for writ­ing TeX macros. Its main aim is to make macro writ­ing so easy that im­ple­ment­ing a fully new lay­out in TeX would be­come a mat­ter of less than an hour for an av­er­age doc­u­ment. The aim is that such a task could be ac­com­plished by some­one with only a very ba­sic train­ing in TeX pro­gram­ming.

Thus, Lol­lipop aims to make struc­tured text for­mat­ting avail­able in en­vi­ron­ments where typ­i­cal users would switch to WYSIWYG pack­ages for the free­dom that such a mech­a­nism of­fers.

In ad­di­tion, de­vel­op­ment of sup­port for Lol­lipop doc­u­ments writ­ten in RTL lan­guages (such as Per­sian) is un­der­way.
