The eledmac package is for typesetting critical editions. The eledpar
package is an extension of eledmac enabling parallel typesetting in
columns or on facing pages.

Eledmac and eledpar are successors of ledmac and ledpar. Ledmac was a
LaTeX port, and extension, of the plain TeX EDMAC, TABMAC and EDSTANZA

The package is available on [CTAN](http://www.ctan.org/pkg/eledmac).

eled­mac – Type­set schol­arly edi­tions

A pack­age for type­set­ting schol­arly crit­i­cal edi­tions, re­plac­ing the es­tab­lished led­mac pack­age. Led­mac it­self was a port of the plain EDMAC macros.

The pack­age sup­ports in­dex­ing by page and by line num­bers, and sim­ple tab­u­lar- and ar­ray-style en­vi­ron­ments.

The pack­age is dis­tributed with the re­lated eled­par pack­age. The pack­age is now su­per­seded by reled­mac.
