    Memoir is a flexible class for typesetting poetry, fiction, 
non-fiction and mathematical works as books, reports, articles or
manuscripts. Documents can use 9pt, 10pt, 11pt, 12pt, 14pt, or 17pt as the
normal fontsize and, if you have scalable fonts, 20pt, 25pt, 30pt, 36pt,
48pt, or 60pt sizes, or even larger. Many methods are provided to let 
you create your particular design. The class incorporates over 30 of the 
more popular packages.


   (Lars Madsen  is gradually taking over 
    the support for memoir.)

    NOTE: In order to provide fixes for any problems that may arise
between major releases, you may find a file called mempatch.sty
which contains any current fixes for the memoir class. The class
will automatically include this so DO NOT \usepackage{mempatch}.
The Change lists below do not neccessarily note each release of
the patch or addendum files.

   NOTE: Similarly, there may be file(s) called memmanadd.(tex|pdf) which 
provides amendments to the current version of the User Manual.

   NOTE: If you are using the hyperref package dated earlier than 2006/11/15, 
use the memhfixc package after the hyperref package, e.g.,
Later versions of the hyperref package automatically load the memhfixc package.

    NOTE: The full User Manual (memman.pdf) is a large document of about
550 pages in total. You do not need to print all of it, especially if you 
already have an earlier edition. Roughly speaking, the main portions are:
o Frontmatter: Preface, Toc, Introduction, Terminology  ~  40 pages
o Mainmatter: 
    Class commands and environments, etc.               ~ 380 pages
o Appendices: (La)Tex programming, Errors and warnings  ~  40 pages
o Backmatter:
    Command glossary                                    ~  40 pages
    Bibliography, indexes                               ~  50 pages

Changes (2009/11/17)

o Memoir v1.61803398c 

-- fixed typo that broke \flushbottom. Please note that this fix WILL 
   change existing documents, potentially changing page breaks.
-- fixed a problem that might cause the addition of trimmarks to shift 
   the output box a bit downward. Thanks to Heiko Oberdiek for the 
   analysis and fix
-- fixed a typo in an example in the manual
-- changed \tmarkml, \tmarkmr, \tmarktm and \tmarkbm to place markers 
   for the middle parts of the text. Earlier they did nothing and had 
   to be defined by the user. Now the user can simply define them to do 
   nothing if needed.
-- added visual example to the manual showing the four trim mark types
-- changed the madsen chapter style such that it now have a better 
   unnumbered look

    To install the package:
o run: latex memoir.ins (which will generate memoir.cls, 
                         a set of mem*.clo files,
                         and basic.gst for MakeIndex glossary files)
o Move memoir.cls, the mem*.clo files and any mem*.sty file to locations 
  where LaTeX will find them (typically in a local texmf tree at 
  /tex/latex/memoir) and refresh the file database. 
  See the FAQ on CTAN at help/uk-tex-faq
  or for more information on this.

    To read the commented source code
o run: (pdf)latex memoir.dtx
       For an index run: makeindex -s memoir
o run: (pdf)latex memoir.dtx
o Print the result for a hardcopy of the documented code (which consists
  of nearly 500 pages)

    To process memman.tex (if you really want to do this and not just use 
memman.pdf as supplied)
o Make sure you can use the memoir class and the alltt, fixltx2e,
  layouts, graphicx, comment, and url (and perhaps some more) packages.
o Run (pdf)latex twice on memman.tex
o For an index run: makeindex -s memman
o For an index of first lines run: makeindex lines
o For a glossary run: makeindex -s memman.gst -o memman.gls memman.glo
o Run (pdf)latex twice more on memman.tex
o Print the manual

Changes (2009/01/26)
o Memoir v1.6180339c released with minor bug fixes that could
  not be done via the patch file, plus some new functionality. The

   `b1paper', and `b2paper' for A0, A1, A2, B0,B1, and B2 size stock paper.

-- Macro \memoirpostopthook{} which is called after the options are
   processed but before anything else is done (like setting the page layout).
   As an example, you may define it as (before the \documentclass}
  to specify a stock paper size of  by  that is not provided by the 
  defined options.

-- New `portrait' option (default, the opposite of `landscape').

   The macros are to be used instead of \settrimmedsize taking the
   same arguments.

-- New optional parameter in \makeheadwidth{
