1. List of pdfTeX documentation files
=====================================

pdftex-a.pdf (A4 format)
pdftex-l.pdf (letter format)
pdftex-s.pdf (screen format)
pdftex-b.pdf (A5 booklet made from pdftex-a.pdf)
pdftex-b-e.pdf (A5 booklet, even pages)
pdftex-b-o.pdf (A5 booklet, odd pages)
pdftex-syntax.txt


2. Installation
===============

Untar or unzip the distribution file. Change to directory "manual".
All files are built from pdftex-t.tex via the Makefile or the file
makefiles.cmd.

2.1 Unix Style
--------------

See the Makefile.  To re-generate the manual PDFs from their sources,
type:

make allclean; make

To get also the A5 booklet PDFs, type:

make booklet

Finally you might type:

make clean

to remove all unneeded stuff that has accumulated during processing.
Only the sources, the PDFs, and file pdftex-syntax.txt will be kept.

2.2 Windows Style
-----------------

Execute file makefiles.cmd.


3. How it's done
================

3.1 Generating pdftex-syntax.txt from pdftex-t.tex
--------------------------------------------------
pdftex-t.tex --> (awk -f syntaxform.awk) --> pdftex-syntax.txt


3.2 Generating title page of manual
-----------------------------------
pdftex-w.tex --> (pdfetex) --> pdftex-w.pdf
  --> (expand, fmt, grep) --> pdftex-t.txt
