Files         : glossary.dtx   - documented source file
                glossary.ins   - installation script

This package is provided to assist generating a glossary.  It has
a certain amount of flexibility allowing the user to customize the
format of the glossary and define new glossary-style objects. It 
is also possible to define acronyms.

To extract the code do:

latex glossary.ins

This will create the files glossary.sty, glossary.perl, and some sample files.  Move
glossary.sty to a subdirectory of your local texmf tree 
(e.g. $LOCALTEXMF/tex/latex/contrib/) and glossary.perl
to the LaTeX2HTML style files directory (e.g. latex2html/styles). 
The Perl script provides an easy interface to
makeindex for those who can't remember (or can't be bothered) all
the required switches.  See documentation for more details.

To extract the documentation do:

latex glossary.dtx
makeindex -s glossary
makeindex -s -o glossary.gls glossary.glo
latex glossary.dtx
latex glossary.dtx

Alternatively, if you use pdflatex instead of latex, the 
documentation will have hyperlinks.  If you want documentation 
on the code, remove the line:
