About Lollipop and its manual.

You have obtained a package containing the Lollipop format 
and its manual.

The manual is a pretty good illustration of the power of
Lollipop, but there is also a file 'address.tex' which
contains example macros for an address book.

Lollipop is still under development. The manual contains
some remarks about what is still to be done. If you have any
questions, remarks, suggestions (or if you want to voice
your appreciation :-) , feel free to contact me:

lollipop – made easy

Lollipop is “ made easy” — it is a macro package that functions as a toolbox for writing macros. Its main aim is to make macro writing so easy that implementing a fully new layout in would become a matter of less than an hour for an average document. The aim is that such a task could be accomplished by someone with only a very basic training in programming.

Thus, Lollipop aims to make structured text formatting available in environments where typical users would switch to WYSIWYG packages for the freedom that such a mechanism offers.

In addition, development of support for Lollipop documents written in RTL languages (such as Persian) is underway.
