   10 This directory contains documentation on the Texinfo system and the TeX
   11 sources needed to process Texinfo sources.  We recommend using the
   12 texi2dvi included in this distribution to run a Texinfo manual through
   13 TeX to produce a DVI file.
   14 
   15 The .tex files are not installed automatically because TeX installations
   16 vary so widely.  Installing them in the wrong place would give a false
   17 sense of security.  So, you should simply cp *.tex to the appropriate
   18 place.  If your installation follows the TeX Directory Structure
   19 standard (http://tug.org/tds/), this will be the directory
   20 TEXMF/tex/texinfo/ for texinfo.tex, and TEXMF/tex/generic/epsf/ for
   21 epsf.tex.
   22 
   23 It is also possible to put these .tex files in a `local' place instead
   24 of overwriting existing ones, but this is more complicated.  See your TeX
   25 documentation in general and the texmf.cnf file in particular for information.
   26 
   27 If you add files to your TeX installations, not just replace existing
   28 ones, you very likely have to update your ls-R file; do this by
   29 running the mktexlsr command.
   30 
   31 You can get the latest texinfo.tex from
   32 ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/texinfo/texinfo.tex (and all GNU mirrors)
   33 ftp://tug.org/tex/texinfo.tex (and all CTAN mirrors)
   34 or from the gnulib project on Savannah (among other places).
   35 If you have problems with the texinfo.tex in this distribution, please check
   36 for a newer version.
