PARALLEL-package (beta 4) -- typesetting two texts parallel

What is it

The PARALLEL-package provides a small tool to typeset in two columns
or on two pages parallel, e.g. if you want to set two languages besides.

Please remember: this is only an ``interim-public-beta'' until I'll 
have finished the complete documentation, the code should be fine.

(You need LateX2e)
1) Run latex on "parallel.ins" and three times on "parallel.drv".
2) Put "parallel.sty" where latex can find it.
3) View and/or print "parallel.dvi", latex the "exampl*.tex", if you want.

par­al­lel – Type­set par­al­lel texts

Pro­vides a par­al­lel en­vi­ron­ment which al­lows two po­ten­tially dif­fer­ent texts to be type­set in two columns, while main­tain­ing align­ment. The two columns may be on the same page, or on fac­ing pages.

This ar­range­ment of text is com­monly used when type­set­ting trans­la­tions, but it can have value when com­par­ing any two texts.
