Copying and distribution of this file, with or without modification, are permitted in any medium without royalty provided the copyright notice and this notice are preserved. This directory contains documentation on the Texinfo system and the TeX sources needed to process Texinfo sources. We recommend using the texi2dvi included in this distribution to run a Texinfo manual through TeX to produce a DVI file. The .tex files are not installed automatically because TeX installations vary so widely. Installing them in the wrong place would give a false sense of security. So, you should simply cp *.tex to the appropriate place. If your installation follows the TeX Directory Structure standard (http://tug.org/tds/), this will be the directory TEXMF/tex/texinfo/ for texinfo.tex, and TEXMF/tex/generic/epsf/ for epsf.tex. It is also possible to put these .tex files in a `local' place instead of overwriting existing ones, but this is more complicated. See your TeX documentation in general and the texmf.cnf file in particular for information. If you add files to your TeX installations, not just replace existing ones, you very likely have to update your ls-R file; do this by running the mktexlsr command. You can get the latest texinfo.tex from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/texinfo/texinfo.tex (and all GNU mirrors) ftp://tug.org/tex/texinfo.tex (and all CTAN mirrors) or from the gnulib project on Savannah (among other places). If you have problems with the texinfo.tex in this distribution, please check for a newer version.
