txt – Out­put doc­u­ments via ter­mi­nals, line print­ers, etc

The pack­age pro­vides the means to pre­pare a DVI file for ap­prox­i­mately laid-out monospace font text out­put. This out­put could then be con­verted to text us­ing (for ex­am­ple) dvi2tty and then sub­mit­ted to a line printer.

The pack­age is in­com­plete (it re­lies on a font ‘doc’ which it refers to as a ‘pseudo-font’ but nowhere ex­plains where it comes from). Fur­ther­more, it was writ­ten for ob­so­lete LaTeX 2.09 (though it runs, mod­ulo the ab­sence of the font) un­der cur­rent LaTeX.
