                 |      THE BYTEFIELD PACKAGE      |
                 | Scott Pakin, |


The bytefield package helps the user create illustrations for network
protocol specifications and anything else that utilizes fields of
data.  These illustrations show how the bits and bytes are laid out in
a packet, register, or memory.

Building bytefield

tex bytefield.ins       <== Produces bytefield.sty (the package proper)
latex bytefield.dtx     <== Produces bytefield.dvi (the documentation)
makeindex -s bytefield.idx -o bytefield.ind  <== Writes an index
makeindex -s bytefield.glo -o bytefield.gls  <== Writes a change log
latex bytefield.dtx     <== Incorporates the index and change log into

Note that bytefield comes with pre-built documentation (PDF format,
U.S. letter-sized paper, 24 pages).  Also, there is an example.tex
file that shows how one might include hyperlinks in a protocol
diagram.  example.tex needs the hyperref package and should be run
through pdfLaTeX, VTeX, dvipdfm, or any other backend that supports
hyperref hyperlinks.
